Cricut Sending Hugs card

Cricut Sending Hugs card
Hello, friends!

Today, I have a really fun card. I have been thinking of other similar things I can do because I really love how it turned out!

Watercolor is all the rage, so the Brushstrokes stamp set is really on-trend. I see so many things made using watercolor stamp sets and I am so drawn to them. It is just so bright, cheerful, and whimsical!
Brushstrokes  Item Number: C1608


Item Number: C1608
This card is made using the Extreme Fonts and Opposites Attract cartridges. I have not used these Cricut cartridges in a long time and it was fun to pull them out and play with them again. 

I used the 'slice' feature (going to do a video on how to do this soon) to cut out 'hugs' using letters from Extreme fonts. 'Sending' was cut using Opposites Attract with the letters being welded together. 

If you have a Cricut Explore, here is the file: Cricut Sending Hugs card
