Hugs From Shelli Kit Alternative 2

Check out my post from yesterday to see my first alternative card!

Here’s the second card I designed as I was crafting with the Hugs From Shelli Kit during my Facebook Live video last week:

I coloured in the Early Espresso image on one of the notecard sized bases in the kit using Stampin’ Blends.  This added a lot of depth to the image, IMHO!  

Then I cut the front panel off the notecard and wrapped some of the pink trim around it.  You can see in the video I used my favourite trick of using a piece just long enough to fold  over to the back on each side and securing it with Scotch/sticky tape.  Once the sentiment label was popped up with Dimensionals, I tied a separate bow and added it with a Glue Dot. Uses a bit less trim and is easier to handle!

A layer of Old Olive cardstock and  an Early Espresso card base and voila – an easy “upgrade” to the original design.

I’ll be playing around some more with alternatives in the coming days…
​why don’t you 
grab a kit and play, too?
