Who Doesn’t Want A Hug?

I’m back again today with another card for Less is More Week 173.  Today’s card is very simple and clean!  I’ve combined my love of water-coloring and die-cutting to create my card.

For those of you who don’t know a couple of weeks ago I start a watercolor class and absolutely loved it.  Before, the class started we were instructed to practice using our “stuff” and I created a couple of single pieces.  I had hoped to use my pieces during the class but never did because I create other cards.  So, when Less is More decided that their recipe this week would be Die Cut, I knew I had to use this piece on my card. No need to throw anything away, especially a big Hug as pretty as this.


I know I wanted to keep my card very simple because the watercolor image is so powerful by itself.

I die cut out 4 hugs and attached them to my watercolor piece to create some dimension on the front of my card.

Side note: I’ve been working on improving my photograph.  The background of these pictures are a little dark but I like the effect.  It gives the card a warm feeling which is what I love in the words of Olaf, “I Love Warm Hugs“!!

So, what do you think? Do you like “Warm Hugs” too?

Let me know.

  1. Brilliant card!
    Thanks for visiting me and the lovely comments. I did the water colour course too – wasn’t it inspiring?!
    I’ve had a good look around your blog it really is inspiring – I love your style.

    • Thank you Elaine!! I explored your site as well and your cards are awesome. All of your die cut cards are great. I love your watercolor flowers. They look great. My favorite is the orange flower, that color really made the card pop.

      Yes, that class was amazing. I really enjoyed it. I hope they do a part two.

  2. What a stunning card. The inking effect on the sentiment is wonderful!
    Thanks so much

  3. Hugs are the best – did you know that they are recyclable? If you receive one you don’t want you just recycle it and pass it to someone else 🙂 Helen T (No 123)

    • Hey Helen, you are funny and so right!!! LOL, I never thought of hugs in that way, but its true. I stopped by your blog and I love both of your cards but the second one is my favorite. I have the thinlits die, I need to use it more often. Welcome to the blog world.
