Did you know that 21st January is National Hugging Day celebrated all around the world? I am a hugging person, I cannot imagine a day without hugs. We do this all the time with my kids and also with my husband. If any of us is sad, the first thing we do is a long and tight hug. Hugs are more important than kisses for our mental well-being, it is so much more than a physical act. It means we are not alone.
Today’s card was inspired by the chilly weather and warm hugs. First I stamped the cute critters from the Lawn Fawn Happy Hugs stamp set, coloured them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies. The colours I used are the following: fox: TN8, TN7, TN5, BO3, BG1, BG05, rabbit: MB4, MB3, MB1, MB05, FS7.
Then I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Snowflake frame from white glitter cardstock and die cut a white stitched rectangle which fit in the middle. I created a Blue Violet mat for it before adhering it to the snowflake frame.
For the sentiment I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Winter wishes circle die from Blue Violet cardstock and cut the word “winter” out. I adhered it in place and stamped the rest of the sentiment around it from the Lawn Fawn Happy Hugs stamp set.
After adding the hugging critters, I used a black glaze pen on their noses and glossy accent on the die cut sentiment. Isn’t it cute?
I hope you liked my card today and will come back again for more inspiration. Happy hugging!
See you soon,
