Sending Hugs

Hi and welcome!  We're back with another challenge at The Flower Challenge and this month we have a sketch for you.  Here is the card I created using this CAS sketch.

When I saw the sketch, I saw the horizontal panel as negative space, so that's the direction I took.  I stamped and colored the floral image and cut it out with the co-ordinating die.  I then cut a segment out of the card base and adhered some gingham paper in the gap before adhering the card base back together using foam tape.

Finally, I added the flower and sentiment and my card was done.

Thanks so much for visiting!  The design team have some wonderful cards using this sketch, so be sure to check them out.

Products used:

Stamps:  Beautiful Friend (Clearly Besotted), Friendship Messages (SSS)
Ink: Intense Black (SSS), Versafine Onyx Black
Cardstock:  White, Homespun Gingham (MFT)
Dies:  Beautiful Friend (CB), Stitched Rectangle Mat (Lil' Inkers)
Accessories: Copics, white gel pen, Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen
