Sending Hugs

I don't scrapbook anymore & other than making greetings cards for my children, I've been trying to do some CAS cards that I can make several of, and send off to a charity.  I made this set of cards this weekend just past.  I saw a couple of examples of this layered style using the same stamp on Pinterest.  Most of the ones I saw were three layers, but I stuck to two to keep the bulk down for postage purposes.  The background stamp I used is the Flower Burst Pattern from Basic Grey.  I picked a bunch of pastel colored cardstock from my stash & matched up as best I could the Colorbox Chalk Inks that would complement them.  The Sending Hugs greeting is from the Avery Elle Sending You Set.  That bow is actually a three piece die cut.  It comes with several different shapes to be the knot, and I chose the heart.  For the life of me I can't remember who makes it although I can see the packaging in my head!!  Anyway...they're not too fancy, but thought they were cute enough for someone to send or receive with a personal note inside!  Thanks for stopping by!
