Sending Hugs
by Sue McRae


Happy New Year everyone! Sue here with a card design that can be used for Valentine’s Day or for sending some hugs to that special someone. This is a very quick card to make using strips of colourful card stock.


I started by cutting a variety of widths of paper into strips that are a maximum of ¼” wide. Using strips that are wider does not allow for multiple colours of paper to show up in the heart design. I adhered these strips diagonally to an A2 card panel.


Next I die cut the Grid Heart Frame from white card stock, covered the back of it with tiny pieces of foam tape and attached it to the striped panel. I then added this to my card front.


I die cut the Stitched Envelope from matching card stock and added that to the card front along with a black hugs die cut. I stamped the sentiment from the Whittle Love set onto white card stock and added that to the flap of the envelope. The original sentiment was longer but I just inked up the word I wanted. This really stretches the use of your stamps! The card was finished with a sprinkling of Clear Fairy Drops.


Using strips of paper in a card design is fun and quick and your colour choices can lean towards a more feminine or masculine palette depending on the recipient.


Thanks for visiting with me today and have a great weekend!

Hi Sue, I admire your patience joining all the tiny strips of paper together, but they provide such an effective background to the apertures. I love this card.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
