4/26/24 - Sending Love & Big Hugs

Happy Friday! It’s been awhile since I made a card for other challenges. I combined a few and made this Sending Love & Big Hugs card using some retired items as well as *soon to be* retire Sending Smiles bundle! This bundle was one of my favorite and caught my eye early on when catalog came out so I gotta have it. It’s very versatile and the dies are great, it even has shapes that fits the sentiments. Azure Afternoon is a color that came out last year with the new SU catalog and I never USED it. Finally placed an order to get some cardstock and finally using it on a card. I hope you enjoyed this card I am sharing today and hope you get to create this weekend.

  1. Azure Afternoon is such a bright, happy colour so it suits your sentiment. I love seeing those Split Textures dies in use - I'm not parting with mine! Thanks for sharing your least used colour with us at As You See It.

  2. Azure Afternoon is a very bold colour, and hard to use in large amounts, but you've made it very tame here, and in good taste, using Cajun Craze to tone it down a bit! Great use of those dies.

  3. I love the colour combination! Thanks for sharing your card with the Daring Cardmakers this week.
