PRETTY & PLEASING...

There's nothing unique or exclusive about the design elements of this card, but someone deserves a BIG HUG because it's so pretty.  (Oh! That must be me!)  Don't you love the color.  And don't you love how all the Stampin' Up! papers and products match!  It's ahhhh inspiring!

And this Big Shot die is simply to die for!

Big Hug2

I know, I know, I know... I used this same die in this same way just last week!  I couldn't help using it again today... and I might even use it tomorrow!  Naaaaahh!

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

So if you deserve a big hug (or not), go ahead and invest in this die.  It can also be stacked and combined with other flower shapes.  By using plain papers, printed papers or a combination of both, it takes on new and different looks each way it's made.

Supplies & Accessories:  Perfect Words Stamp Set (Hostess) #122470-W / #122472-C, Basic Black Stampin' Pad #101179, Wisteria Wonder Textured Card Stock #124386, Basic Black Textured Card Stock #121078, Whisper White Card Stock #100730, Berry Blossoms Designer Series Paper #122350, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine #113439, Flower Daisies #2 Bigz Die #114520, Scallop Trim Border Punch #119882, Large Oval Punch #119855, 1/2" Circle Punch #119869, 3/16" Corner Punch #119871, Crop-A-Dile #108362, Stampin' Dimensionals #104430, Whisper White Medium Envelopes #107301.

Design Note:  I hand-cut the large black oval.  Here's How:  After stamping then punching BIG HUG with the Large Oval Punch, I glued it to a little scrap of black.  Using Paper Snips (#103579), I slowly trimmed around the edge. Finally, I carefully sanded around the edge with a Designer Sanding Block (#124304), until it looked pretty and pleasing

I'LL BET YOU'RE IN THE MOOD TO SHOP!

Well, a great big hug is well deserved by you! Doesn't that flower look terrific with that DSP? Lovely card!

I love it! I'm afraid you've "sold me" on this die! It is one I don't have, but not for long...

Very pretty! The embossing frame can be cut down with the oval die too!

Bright and cherry. Feels like spring! TFS!
