I had a nice week, with a visit from my son and his wife. After they left, I had to make a quick birthday card to get in the mail.

I like the term 'paper hugs' for cards that are sometimes difficult to design. This card is for a special granddaughter who has recently been through some tough times.
I made the base card with Twinking H2Os on watercolor paper. When dry, I placed it in an embossing folder and ran it through my very old Big Shot. I then tapped a Brilliance Pearlescent Lavender ink pad lightly over the embossed areas. I made the frame with 2 stitched rectangle dies. The hugs was cut with a Hero Arts die, 3 layers glued on top of each other for thickness. The base card is a light grey.

Difficult times have overwhelmed me recently. However, I felt the need to create a card for others at the center of these difficult times. This card was made for the family directly affected by a family suicide.
