Hello there! I'm back for my second post as a guest designer forConcord & 9th. This time I used the fun newHugsstamp set andHugs Card dieto create a gift set.
First off, I have to tell you that this new Hugs die that Concord & 9th has created is ingenious, it's original and super easy to use. If you have any questions on how this Hugs die works you click hereto watch the Concord & 9th You Tube video but in all honesty its even easier to use than it looks.
For my card, I started out by using a piece of mixed media paper which is light weight and can handle watercoloring and I stamped and heat embossed the oranges with white embossing powder (I embossed a few extra oranges on some scrap mixed media paper to use as embellishments). Once I was done with that, I used my Gansai Tambi watercolors to add color to my oranges and set it aside to dry. Next I used the Hugs die and die cut my card from white cardstock. I also die cut the Hugs die in orange cardstock and Doodlebug Designs chevron orange glitter paper and glued the two together slightly off so the die cut glitter Hugs would stand out. Once my watercolored panel was dry, I cut it down the middle and adhered it to the front of my card along with a die cut vellum circle and die cut white frame. Next I adhered my glittered die cut hugs with some glue, added a few orange slices and stamped and heat embossed my inside sentiment with white embossing powder onto a die cut circle of orange cardstock.
The little treat bag was simple, I used a glassine bag, added a banner of the matching orange glitter paper with two die cut circles of orange and white cardstock and few more of my watercolored oranges. Inside the bag I added some sweet sugared orange slices.
