Sending Love and Hugs


Hello, and welcome to my stop on Simon Says Stamp's Better Together Blog Hop.
You should have arrived from the blog of the insanely talented Nichol Magouirk. If not, I suggest you head HERE to Simon's blog to start at the beginning.
My card today features lots of yummy Simon products, many from the gorgeous Better Together release.
First, I die cut a Large Tag from some Pebbles patterned paper, then die cut the heart from the middle. I used one of the hearts from the Combined Hearts die set - it is the perfect fit for this tag, and a perfect heart shape in my opinion… I really like my hearts to have a symmetry to them. :)
Next, I stamped a sentiment using the (awesome) Sending and Wishing stamp set, then backed the heart die cut with acetate and foam adhesive.
I trimmed my other papers and adhered them to a card, then created a pile of Moonshine Sequins and sparkly Shaker Shack seed beads and stuck the tag on top, sealing the shaker goodness into its window.
Love & Hugs Shaker by Lucy Abrams 
I love Simon Says Stamp's Moonshine sequins - they come in three different sizes which is perfect for shaker cards.
Love & Hugs Shaker 2 by Lucy Abrams
I like the way the background paper peeps through the window too. :)
