Dropping Hugs

Tia's Tips- All that design paper you've got stashed away can be used to decorate your card other than just the flat background. Stop and really take a look at the design in the paper. Is it large? Is it small? Large designs such as a flower or animal can be fussy cut out and turned into an embellishment. Small designs can be grouped together and punched out in shapes. Then pop up on some foam tape and you've got a 3-D embellishment.

The Project:

A new sponsor-The Cat's Pajamas has a large selection of 'cutable' files and digital stamps. This is the set that I received. Lots of ways to work with this set!

With lots of family and friends far away from me, I gravitated towards the helicopter bunny to bring them my well wishes,

Again, I like to start with flipping through my hoards of paper to make a match with my image. Yellow clouds are a bit different, but they are also sparkly! I love how big the clouds are and instantly knew I would cut them out and make 3-D embellishments with them.

Looking at your color wheel, Blue and Yellow= a perfect match. I didn't want my bunny to be washed out up in the sky and decided to color him brown rather than leave him white and I think it helps your eye focus to him. I didn't want to further fussy cut (after cutting out some clouds) and that's when I thought...I will make it kinetic!

I have a slider die from Art Impressions (AI), and used it to create the slide panel under my primary image.

I had a scrap piece of embossed paper for a bookmark and used it as a decorative pull. I printed the word HUGS from the digital set. And can now send a fun interactive card!
