Hugs and Kisses, Fall Style

Classes / Events/ Holidays / Special Days/ Paper crafting
For clubs this month, I wanted a card that could be used to express friendship, thanks, or birthday in fall colors, but not using typical fall images. I also wanted to use my favorite In Color, Blackberry Bliss, and Crushed Curry. I had seen this color combo on a Demo friend's card and loved it. Here are two versions of the card I designed.
hugsandkissesYou aren't seeing double on the sentiment on the card on top…I stamped it twice, first in Crumb Cake ink and then right next to that, in Blackberry Bliss so it would look like a shadow. On the bottom card, on top of the Washi Tape and Ribbon, I also attached a small Gold Baker's Twine Bow.
