Birthday hugs

Greetings crafty friends!  Hope you are having a great week.  At Seize the Birthday this week, we are trying something that is new for me - inlay die cuts. Not sure why I haven't done this before.  I really like how this turned out!  I'm currently trying to use up older fabulous paper that I have been hoarding - think it works perfectly with the bold inlay sentiment.

Hope you get a chance to play along with us this week.  Check out the blog for all the details on how to play along.  Give some love to our Special Party Guest, Rahamat,  and the rest of the design team.

Have a terrific day and wonderful weekend.  Always appreciate your comments!  Thanks for stopping by.

Card details:

Stamps: Snarky Stamps Freaking Sentiments
Paper: SU! Basic Black cardstock, Cosmo Cricket Social Club Manhattan (retired)

  1. Fun card - love the font of the hugs too

  2. Nice! I like the black pearl to balance the sentiment. I agree, inlaid die cuts look great.

  3. I completely agree - the bold font of the sentiment looks gorgeous on the wonderful pattern paper! Neither overpowers the other - just the right balance! And that one single pearl - how did you ever decide to place it there - just perfect!!
