* Holiday Hugs – Day 4 CDD October Release *

Written on Thursday, October 12th, 2017

   Welcome to my first post for Day 4 of the Craftin’ Desert Divas October Release! Today, the divas are showcasing 2 new stamp sets… “Holiday Hugs” and “Holly Jolly”.

   The first card I’m showing you is for the set Holiday Hugs. I just LOVED these two little characters hugging candy canes! Also, I figure that each little troll has his own little critter that matches his/her hair color!

   I decided to make this card a shaker card. I used some Doodlebug “Santa Express” paper to compliment the little candy loving troll and his buddy. To make the casing for my shaker, I cut 6 layers of 100lb Neenah Solar White cardstock using the Inside Scalloped Circle dies and adhered them all on top of each other. Then, I cut an additional glitter piece and added my acetate to it for the top. I filled my shaker using Fairy Dust sequins from CDD and added in a few iridescent stars of my own. I also used the Doodlebug Sprinkles to add in some larger candy shapes. I love that if you use your powder tool, you can take the adhesive off the back of these and they become little flat backs!

   I used Copics to color up my cuties and then cut them out using my Scan N Cut. I didn’t want the focus to be taken from them, so I adhered them to the outside of the shaker.

   The die cut sentiment is from the new Sending word die set. There’s the word die and also a shadow die in this set. I added some NUVO Shimmer pen to my word to give it some sparkle. The “Holiday Hugs” sentiment is from the Holiday Hugs stamp set. I actually put some foil on top of it to stick with that green color scheme. I used a tag from CDD’s Pocket Pieces HI dies to cut it out. I attached it to the Sending sentiment with a little Doodlebug Christmas twine and my card is finished.

   Be sure and stop by the Craftin’ Desert Divas Gallery and join our October Release Event for a chance to win this set!
