Big Hug Light Up Card - Pear Blossom Press + Picket Fence Studios Collab Hop!

Saturday, August 5, 2023

Welcome to a fun Collab Hop with Picket Fence Studios and Pear Blossom Press! As you hop along with us, we hope you’ll be inspired to recreate some of these beautiful cards, all featuring your favorite stamps and dies from Picket Fence Studios, and lights from Pear Blossom Press. Get ready for lots of bright ideas, and be sure to comment as you hop along, for your chance to win a $25 store credit!

My card details can be found in my video below, but here's a quick overview of how I incorporated my Halo Light in case you're quickly going through the hop today. I started with using a couple of the window cut out dies from the Slim Line Die Cutting System to create a scene to layer above my Halo Light. I added some Distress Ink to give them some dimension and used a square rectangle for all of my layers to line them up evenly.

The brown, green and blue layers are adhered to a piece of peach colored cardstock that also had a circle cut but slightly larger than the blue cardstock so I didn't have to worry about lining it up correctly to keep my die cut scene centered to the card. The Halo Light is sandwiched in between the peach and yellow cardstock so it looks like my sun lights up when you press the heart! Check out my video for all the details of how this card came together after you're done hopping along!

Every good hop has prizes, right? So Picket Fence Studios and Pear Blossom Press are each giving away a $25 store credit! Comment on this post by August 12, 2023 to be entered to win. Winners will be posted on the Pear Blossom Press Blog on August 14th. (Visit Pear Blossom Press for complete contest rules.)
