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.
