Happy Friday!

Today’s card is all about the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper.  I chose to showcase the Mossy Meadow gingham and the Real Red, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow striped patterns. These are classic patterns in holiday colors and they are so cute and cheerful paired together.  I designed this card with a lot of white space to bring more attention to the pattern mix.

The sentiment is sweet and the font mix is super charming. The Mossy Meadow stamped sentiment is from the Wrapped In Christmas stamp set. This sentiment would also work nicely on the inside of a card. It’s my personal preference though, to leave the inside blank so I can hand write a personal note.

I started with a Mossy Meadow A-2 card base, then attached the striped layer to a Real Red mat layer.  About an inch up from the bottom of the card, I added a Mossy Meadow horizontal layer and topped it with the Mossy Meadow gingham pattern.  This helped to anchor my sentiment layer and gave this design some color balance by bringing the Mossy Meadow to the top. I chose Mossy Meadow ink for the same reason.

The sentiment layer is cropped with one of the Rectangle Stitched Framelit Dies and attached to a Real Red mat layer; again to give this design more color balance. The sentiment layer needed a little something more, so I thought the little heart from the Warm Wraps Dies would work nicely with the sentiment.  I was still not totally satisfied.  Even though I enjoy creating “clean” cards, to me there was still too much white space. The Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels were the perfect embellishment. A little bling always helps.

So, get some Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper, add a few pretty layers, a cropped heart and just a touch of bling and create something sweet, super charming and joyful!
