Hugs with Keren

IMG_4765
I'm delighted to be with you today, and thought that I'd mix up a few sets to show you a simple clustered card.
I started out by triple die cutting In a Word: Hugs Cutaway and adding a mint coloured ink over the Scenery: Multifaceted Creative Screenings onto a tag cut from the Essentials: Katharine Cutaways 
You can see the little tiny green leaves- they are the negatives from the In Bloom: Paulina's Greenery Cutaways die. As they're so tiny, I arranged them where I wanted them and then added a sticky film over the top that I used when I'm transferring images from my digital die cutting machine.
Just flip the film over, add some glue and press down carefully and remove the film. A really easy way to transfer little pieces and not have to glue them one by one!

In the next picture you can see some of the other products I've used; In Bloom: Paulina's Greenery Cutaways for the circular wreath layer and then added some greenery courtesy of the beautiful In Bloom: Anna's Flora stamp sets.

I simply sponged Distress Inks onto the leaves in different shades and arranged the leaves under the sentiment. Sometimes you need matching embellishments and I needed some matching the bronze metallic layer so dug out the little dotted die from Essentials: Katharine Cutaways. By passing these through the die cutting machine with some adhesive backed metallic paper, it created little raised sequin-like embellishments that were easy to position and helped with the movement on the card.

This close-up shows the layering and also the sequins which are the special Winnie & Walter sequin mix from Little Things which were the perfect finishing touch. Taking elements off the edge of the card makes the project just that little bit different.

Hope you enjoyed this project-I'll be back soon with more creations!

    1. Thanks C2- glad you like it. The card is 9.5cm x 19cm (3 3/4 x 7 1/2)for the base. It's not a standard size as I don't use card blanks, I simply fold whatever size takes my fancy!

  3. How do you get this card in an envelope and through the postal system when it hangs over the edge like this? You have gone to way too much work to have it destroyed. It's beautiful.

    1. Linda, thankyou for your lovely comment, I actually fold a piece of card slightly overlapping over to where the main part of the card starts- so it ends up fitting into a more square envelope!!
