Hugs Enclosed with Avery Elle

Monday, July 25, 2022

The wheel at Craft Roulette was very kind to me this past weekend! I just LOVE how my card turned out - the colors are so just so pretty and perfect together. Especially with the adorable Sending Hugs stamp set and dies from Avery Elle.

This week the parameters were: 4x6 card; coral + cool colors; pocket; and miniature. My card is a side folding card cut from 8x6 inches and scored to be 4x6. I used coral, green, blue and purple with white, black and grey neutrals. My pocket is the envelope that my flowers are sitting in along with my miniature elephant!

My background was made using my 3x5" Gel Press gelli plate with Distress Inks! I wiped the ink onto the plate, used my Distress Sprayer to add water, and then placed a piece of sturdy cardstock on top and pressed onto the plate to pick up the ink. I trimmed it down to be 3x5" and layered it onto my card base with a layer of pearlescent vellum in between.

The "Hello" sentiment is die cut from three layers of black cardstock and then off-set with a layer of pearlescent vellum as well. To make them shiny, I added Glossy Accents once they were glued to the card. The additional shine and embellishments are from, of course, a Sparkle Blend!

What do you think? Did I do well with the parameters?
