A Way With Words

Paper Hugs

January 9, 2021

Have you sent more cards in 2020 than in previous years? I definitely have – and I think it is something that should continue. So I am making some generic cards to be sent anytime – I thought the Paper Hugs sentiment is perfect just to send out for any reason.

This is a fairly straight-forward card and easy to mass produce. I started with a white card base and inked it up with some Distress Oxides. I used analogous colors (colors next to each other on the color wheel) to make blending easier. Splatter with water and then soak up with a clean paper towel. I used a die cut out in the white corner with a die from the Butterfly Insert .

The Butterfly Insert comes with some funky letters that I thought contrasted nicely with the elegant calligraphy of the A Way with Words Hugs lettering. Both the butterfly front wing and the shadow to the word Hugs was cut out of pale blue foil.

Because I get bored easily, I do like to make variations when I mass produce a card. So here is another one with different colors and using the word “free” instead of “paper”.

Thank you so much for looking and I hope you had a crafty start to the New Year!
