. . . roses and butterflies and warm hugs too, with the Crafty Gals Corner and Bugaboo

~~~ post 4 of 4 for today ~~~

It's time for another challenge with us at the

This week we are letting our creative juices flow with
Crafty Gals Corner Challenges are bi-weekly.
Each crafter may only submit 3 projects per challenge.


The sponsors for this challenge are:

Prize ~ 1 of 5 sets offered by the sponsor


This is my fourth card for today, this time I used the Roses and Butterflies digital stamp by Bugaboo Stamps, to make a card filled with hugs.

I printed the image panel on A5 X-Press It blending card, heat set, coloured with Copic markers, then trimmed down to size.

Next I tried something different.

. . . VERY nervously, I aligned the "hugs" sentiment die over
the coloured image panel and ran it through my Big Shot.

I matted the image panel and adhered it to a 6x6" card base.
I aligned the "hugs" back in the "window" of the image panel, using it as a guide to adhere the "negative" bits from the die cut sentiment.  I die cut the "hugs" sentiment seven (yes, you read it right, 7) times from black cardstock, adhering them together under the "coloured" die cut sentiment, then adhered it back into the image panel.

What do you think?

I matted the inside of the card to match the front and added another die cut hugs.

Here are another couple of photos, you can click on the image to view in full screen.



NOW it's YOUR turn!

I hope that I have inspired you to get creative
and look forward to seeing your projects fill the gallery for
