Love Bug Kisses

Good morning. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We had a great time at my MIL's house the other day and then had a quiet day here yesterday, with just the three of us. We'll be seeing my sister and her family this weekend.

Here is a project I made using Framed Friends. I made a card and tag for a small bag of Hershey Kisses. I made the card base using Gina K Pure Luxury card stock and my new Labels 1 nestabilities dies. I cut the base a little over sized and then scored and folded it. Then I placed it in my die very carefully lining it up so that a portion of the folded side would remain intact.

The folded side is on the left. You can just barely see the outer curves are a bit flattened. The concave curves are cut, which left the perfect opening to slide a ribbon (Pure Luxury Holiday Asst) through.

I cut a smaller Labels 1 layer from Real Red card stock and then added white dots using my white Sakura pen. I stamped the heart along one side and then added highlights with my Sakura pen. The sentiment is from Hand in Hand. The image on the card is colored with Copic markers and the tag is colored with Koh-i-noor pencils.

Have you seen Erika's blog? She has blog candy to celebrate her birthday this past Monday. If you aren't familiar with her, Erika is an amazing scrapbooker and well known for her incredible journaling. She has an upcoming 12 week Journaling 101 Online Scrapbooking Course and is offering free tuition to one lucky winner. That is a $75 value!

Happy Birthday Erika!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful Friday!
