Sending you lots of hugs

I made this card for someone very special who is in need of some hugs:
I used:

- 4" x 4" square white card blank

- a snippet of white card, stamped using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' and a stamp which came free with Craft Stamper magazine a while back. The image was coloured with Pro Markers and the flower centres were dotted with a silver marker pen

- the sentiment comes from a lovely set called 'Truly Appreciated', made by Hero Arts - which was enclosed with a lovely Birthday card from a dear friend (thank you and mwah!). Again, it was stamped using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink

- after trimming the white piece of card down I just ran a Sakura Silver Calligrapher pen around the edges

- the purple backing card was another snippet - SU's 'Perfect Plum'

It's a sweet little stamp and is so much Charles Rennie and Margaret MacDonald Mackintosh's Art Nouveau style.

  9. Hi Di,

    what a very beautiful card.
    I love all your fab stamping, and the colour is fabulous.
    Now I have a die cut similar to this flower that a good blog friend sent me once, and I have still not used it, as I'm waiting for the right card to create for it.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  23. Is it me, or is there something about purple cards that make you smile. Maybe it's because they remind me of a Cadbury's wrapper ;-)
    This is so lovely, Di.
