Sometimes, you need to send a hug to a loved one and we all know it’s impossible to send a real hug. So, what’s the next best thing? How about a handmade card you put all of your heart into? Yes! That’s a great idea. So, we’re ready to send hugs with a beautiful & colorful background just like this one.
Would you like to re-create this? Put some Splash color (we used Cosmic Grape Splash) over a craft mat or plastic. Pick up the color with the smallest acrylic block and create a pattern over a Whip Cream panel. Easy, right?
Now, you know we had to add a little bit more fun, too! We added a bit of Journey Glaze to make that sentiment stand out – since, you know, this is a hug we’re sending in the mail!
Now, we couldn’t stop there! We wanted to add a little more flair, while remaining simple without taking away from our beautiful background. So, a bit of our Bright Days Journey Tape [it’s retiring at the end of June! Take advantage of the LOW price!] and a sprinkle of our Special Celebration Journey Sequins really make the card special without being overwhelming.
Make sure you check out our Retirement Party and take advantage of the low prices before they are gone on June 30, 2018!
