Hugs Card
by Isha Gupta


Hello and Welcome!  It's Isha  sharing a clean and simple spring themed card with you using the new Spring 2019 stamps and dies. I am longing for spring after the long winter, so it was natural to think of florals and butterflies keeping the crisp clean breeze in mind :)


I started by creating a white watercolor cardbase. I then added various paint colors to it, concentrating towards the center. I then added a few splatters too. Let this piece dry. Meanwhile, I die-cut the butterfly and the floral wreath. I adhered the wreath to a piece of vellum. 

I added color to the butterfly front and back layers, once dry, I layered them together and finished it by adhering a gemstone. Adding that pop of pink really gives this card that extra something :)

I stamped the sentiment in the center and adhered all the pieces to the card.

Here is a close up


Easy isn't it? Just keep a lot of white space and you will have a fun, airy CAS card, Hope you got inspired by this card. Have a wonderful crafty day!

Love the watercolor background with cottage flower circle frame, so pretty!

This is really pretty and spring-like!
Do like your watercolour background!

Beautiful card, Isha. So soft and gentle looking. Love the Butterfly Frond die and would be thrilled to win it. Thanks for the chance.

So pretty! I love the background colors and the details! The dies you used are lovely!

Very lovely, springtime look to your design.

Very pretty card - I love the delicate colours.

The circle and butterfly dies are just the ticket to letting us know that "spring is on it's way." Lovely card!

This is such a pretty card!

Being one who can never get enough butterfly dies, I see a new one in my future!!! :) Love it!!! Great card!!!

Beautiful spring card! Love that circle frame!

Beuatiful card - also longing for spring

So pretty with the ring of flowers and butterfly with the watercolor background.

So pretty, I can see doing this technique in the reverse. Keep the card base white and then watercolor the ring of flowers. That would also make the colors pop. I would love to win this die set. Thank you for the chance.

Love the watercolor background, beautiful card!

Soft and serene - a perfect card for a friend who needs a lift. Thanks for your clear instructions and for sharing with us. I'd love to have the butterfly frond join my other MB butterflies!

Beautiful card!
