Artfully Composed Suite All The Hugs Birthday Card

by Joanne James13. June 2022 09:45

Happy Monday everyone! I had a little extra crafty time yesterday so decided to make a quick card using the current Freshly Made Sketches layout by Jen T, which I love:

Those stems were a great opportunity to make another card using the skeleton leaves in the Tropical Layers Dies combined with the Artfully Layered stamp set and a sliver of Artfully Composed designer series paper  - take a look:


I added a little hatched diecut detail to my mat layer and used the colours from the paper for my leaves and sentiment, finishing with a sprinkling of retired enamel dots for a little extra pop of colour: 


I am so sad this bundle is retiring at the end of this month - the Tropical Layers Dies are just fabulous and the sentiments in the co-ordinating stamp set so useful. If this bundle is still on your wishlist, grab it now before it's too late - it's currently on sale, links to the online store are below!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your day - mine is all stamping an admin today! I'll be back tomorrow with another project for our new challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches. Until then, happy stampin'!
