Happy Little Stampers January Challenge...

Hi! I am so happy to be back after a break! I do hope you missed the HLS challenges. I am here today with some great inspiration.

My card today is a quick one, made with some pretty pattern paper and alphabet dies.

I started with a black card base and added a piece of pattern paper cut slightly smaller. Before I adhered the paper to the card base, I die cut the word 'HUGS' out of it. I also cut out the letters from some black fun foam. I adhered the pattern paper die-cuts to the fun foam letters and popped the pieces back into place. Here is a closer look at the sentiment.

Fun foam adds dimension to the die-cuts easily. If you don't have any foam on hand, you can stack 5-6 die-cuts together. Here is another view of the sentiment.

And another look at the completed card.

I hope my cards inspire you to create something beautiful. You can visit the Happy Little Stampers challenge blog for more inspiration and link your creations. I look forward to visiting you in our gallery.
