Badger Hugs - Stampin' Up! Hearts & Hugs

 I'm back after almost a week long absence!  We have a high school graduate now and were quite busy the last few weeks getting ready for that big milestone! Throw in out of town house guests, planning and hosting a graduation party, a soccer tournament and general end of the school year activities and I'm exhausted! But thankfully I've got 2 years to recover before doing it all over again lol!  

  I actually made the card I'm sharing today last week and just ran out of time to share it but luckily the challenge that was my inspiration is still open!  The CAS on Friday team is challenging us to make a clean and simple "hug" card. The new Hearts & Hugs stamp set is a no brainer for this prompt!

  A Basic White card base is a good starting place for a clean and simple card.  I stamped the badgers on a piece of Basic white scrap and then cut it out with the Stylish Shapes square die just for a little bit of subtle detail along the edges.  Blends markers made it really quick to color.

  After making all of these cards with the Full of Life DSP I ended up with some very small scraps and on the back of the square patterned side is a fun rainbow color wash pattern which I used to die cut a bunch of little flowers from.  I sprinkled them in a rainbow along the side of the badger adhering them with just a bit of glue.

Once the flowers were just right I stamped the sentiment underneath and added a baker's twine bow and a new Iridescent faceted gem for a tiny bit of sparkle because I am trying to keep it CAS after all!

  All of the supplies used to make this card can be purchased in my ONLINE STORE.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
