Addicted to CAS - Challenge #56



Hi everyone,
It's that time again...A new challenge at Addicted to CAS, and our Code Word is 'Hugs & Kisses'! Our host is Deepti, and our sponsor for this challenge is Scribbles Designs and they are offering three digi's for the winner!

So, I grabbed my new PTI stamp and die set called Big Hugs for my card:


I used the partial die cutting technique for the Hugs die, stamped the remainder of the sentiment from the same set, and added a gold foil die cut 'xoxo' from Mama Elephant. I completed the card with a red heart from the Confetti die and added Glossy Accents to give it some shine.

It's difficult to see the gold foil on the xoxo sentiment on my screen, so here is a close up:




If you would like to play along with us, feel free to check out all of the beautiful cards my team mates and Guest Designer Julia have created on the Blog...we would love to have you join us!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Oh, my. I love this so much. I am so behind on my challenges, and had no idea about this week's cue word. Better pull out that hugs set again. Your partial die cutting is so striking, and I really like the white with black and just a bit of red and gold.

Fabulous card, Barb: big hugs, XO's (in gold, no less...swooning!) and an absolutely eye-catching layout! I'm smiling at seeing this! I received your sweet note to send "you" a note, but our email is being naughty! I can receive, but not send...better be fixed today. Grr...Here's my address: cmayne@shaw.ca
