Happy Hugs


This is a slimline card that measures 4“ x 9“ when completed.

Taking the white card stock measuring 8“ x 9“ and fold in half so it measures 4“ x 9“ for the card base. Taking the sheet 4A and cut a matting so it is a little smaller than the card front. Taking the pattern making tool and ruler make hole lines along the edge.  Adhere this to the card front with the 3 d foam tape or foam dots.

To make the embellishments: make the dragon flies by stamping with versa-mark and heat setting with gold embossing powder both large dragonflies from the sets Decorative Dragonfly and Dragonfly Florals. Die cut with the matching dies then bring color to them using the aqua pencils Dark Aquamarine 1210, Teal Green 1300, Cadmium Yellow 0210 and the water pen brush.

To make the five gold medallions: Use the medallion circle in the centre of the die set French Courtyard. Die cut this five times from the gold card stock and twenty times thus four layers for each medallion. Adhere all together then add the gold for the top layer. To make the sentiment: Taking the happy birthday circle and die cut once from the gold card stock and four times from the white card stock. Trim each layer at just under the leaf so you get the HAPPY left in the 1/2 circle. Adhere all together. To make the word HUGS: using the smaller sized letters from the Letters and Numbers die set, the white card stock and gold card stock. Die cut four times white and once gold. Adhere together.

Arrange all the elements as seen in the project photo. Adhere with the clear drying adhesive. The dragonflies are adhered by using the clear drying adhesive and the 3D foam tape.
