Hugs are the best medicine

Hello Friends. Sorry I've not been posting here in the last week. I have been posting a good bit over on Instagram playing along with the 30 Day Color Challenge. It's a lot of fun and great way to get in some coloring (read: therapy) every day. I've been managing to sneak in some coloring everyday and it feels good. I'm also in my sketchbook everyday which is very good for me.  But have I been making cards? Well of course.
I made this one for my Aunt this week. I wanted to try out that technique you see here - where you cut into your card with a word die then raise that word up (stacking the diecuts). I'm sure someone has given this clever technique a name - regardless it makes a pretty nifty card. I fashioned my card after one I saw Laura Bassen make. I used a Heidi Swapp stencil and a bunch of different inks to create the background. The die and sentiment are from a Papertrey Ink stamp set called Big Hugs.
Okay that's all from me today. Thanks for stopping by!
