I made this card the other day for my brother-in-law who has been in the hospital and a care facility for several weeks. I know days are long for him and I am trying to come up with masculine cards to cheer his days.
I love the Hostess set Perfect Words because it has several great sentiments in the set. I especially the "Big Hug" one. Sometimes I sign my email messages with "Big Hugs" (before the "Smiles, Laura" of course) and I really wanted to give my BIL a long distant big hug. So I thought of our bear in the Under the Stars set. He looks like he is about to give someone a big bear hug.
The card itself is Crumb Cake and I layered that with Very Vanilla. I used various 5/8" wide strips of designer paper to make the various strips down the paper. I notched the ends and just glued them in the center so they flare out a bit.
I think my BIL really liked the card! I hope he "felt" the hug! Get well soon, Billy!!
Smiles (and big hugs), Laura
