#TGIFC107 Hugs for a Great Friend

This week, I am participating in the TGIF Challenges theme challenge, a sympathy or get well card.

I love all of my retiring products, but those new ones are just so fun to play with! I had to pull out the Lovely Words Thinlits and the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set for this challenge because I thought they fit the theme perfectly. I didn't think I needed this bundle from the new catalog, but then Stampin' Up! shared a video with demonstrators that showed samples using these products, and I couldn't resist any longer!


Today's card is actually a fancy fold card. Check it out!

To recreate it, cut an 8" x 8" square of cardstock. Then score at 4" on both sides, and cut out one of the squares. Easy peasy, and so fun!

It's hard to tell, but I wanted to add a little bit of extra sparkle to match the Glitter Enamel dots, so I got out my Wink of Stella and painted over the "hugs" cut-out. I also used Wink of Stella on my White Baker's Twine. It's very subtle, but adds just a little bit of sparkle, and who doesn't love that?!

The final thing I love about this card? The color combination! Whisper White, Basic Black, Berry Burst, and Powder Pink. You'll be seeing more of those colors around here because it's my new favorite!

I hope you enjoyed today's card, and the sneak peek of all of these fun new products!
