Hello!  This is Nicky with you today sharing a seasonal card as we approach Valentine’s Day but which in fact would work year round.  Here are the products used in this project:-


Big Hugs Woodland

Big Hugs Woodland Die

Paper Hugs Die

I used some mini gingham cardstock from my stash to create an A2 panel.  I used the Paper Hugs Die to die cut the oversized sentiment and then used it 3 more times using white then finally a toning pink cardstock and glued the letters in stacks.  I applied the gingham panel to a white panel and then began to glue the letters back into position through the openings for a bold yet soft background that doesn’t detract from the mini scene I was about to create below it.



I stamped the images I was going to be using from Big Hugs Woodland using Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa.   I coloured the images using the following Copic markers:-

Raccoon – W6, W5, W4, W2, W0

Fox – E13, E11, E21, C3, C1, C0

Deer – E55, E42, E41

Bunny – E42, E41, E40

Blushes – R22, R21, R20, R000

Blooms – BV13, BV17, YR07

Leaves – G24, G46, YG11

Everything was die cut and most elements were added with foam tape until it came time to tucking in some greenery here and there which I did with glue.  I applied a few stamped and die cut hearts together with some mini clear sparkling sequins floating above them for a finishing touch.



Thank you for joining me on the Hello Bluebird blog today, I will be back soon with a new project to share.  Happy crafting!
