National Hugging Day

YES! It's National Hugging Day today!

I love to give hugs and I love to get hugs!

Yes, I'm definitely a hugger, so of course, I LOVE this day!

I wanted to create something special in honor of this especially sweet day and I thought that my "Snowy Couple" rubber stamp design, offered by High Hopes Stamps, coupled with my new Buncha Scraps "Warm Winter Wishes Paper Collection", would be perfect for this project.

I created a pop out card using my Silhouette Cameo and an A2 Card template design from Lori Whitlock. She creates wonderful designs that work perfectly!

But don't worry if you don't have a cutting machine. Sizzix has so many fabulous products to help you create amazing looking cards using their dies.

These are the two Buncha Scraps "Warm Winter Wishes" papers I used for my card.

I added some sparkly bling (clear plastic rhinestones) to my paper to give the appearance of an icey, snowy, frosty day.

I stamped my Snowy Couple and colored/painted them with watercolors (of course) and a few Copics (R20, E13, E15, B12 & BG000)

I then cut out some larger white snowflakes, from card stock, to make it pop, added a blue and white polka dotted ribbon, dotted it with a blue crystal rhinestone and there you have it....a colorful warm, yet frosty, sweet little card for National Hugging Day!

I hope you enjoyed this project today! May you give, and receive, lots of warm, heartfelt hugs today and everyday!
