APPT headerIt’s time for the May 2019 APPT Blog Hop. This month’s kit was designed by Stampin’ Up! Co-founder and Board Chair, Shelli Gardner. It’s called Hugs From Shelli. Be sure to hop all the way around to all the blogs to see all the different ways to send hugs in the mail. You’ll see the list farther down in this post.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Old Olive card stock (CS) cut to 4-3/8″ x 3-1/8″
  • envelope cut to 4-1/4″ x 3″ (solid pink)
  • card base cut to 3″ x 4-1/2″, with the original score line at 2″, then score 1/2″ from all sides, and cut according to the diagram below (dotted lines are scored, solid lines are cut)
  • also score across at 2-1/2″

Stamped with the Hugs From Shelli stamp set:

  • sentiment in Early Espresso ink onto a piece of a Very Vanilla card base
  • flowers in Petal Pink ink over the sentiment

Cut using the Layering Ovals Dies:

  • sentiment
  • a slightly larger oval from a scrap of Crumb Cake CS

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Old Olive CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • solid pick layer glued onto the Old Olive CS layer
  • 24″ of each twine from the kit wrapped around my fingers, then adhered onto the solid pink layer using Tear & Tape
  • sentiment glued onto the Crumb Cake CS oval
  • Crumb Cake CS oval adhered over the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals

Assembled the box:

  • burnished the folds in the box with a Bone Folder
  • glued tabs to inside of adjacent sides to form box and lid
  • pattie inserted into box and the lid closed
  • a piece of each twine wrapped around the box and tied in a bow

I just dropped this pattie in the box for the photo, but I find it fit, and looks, better if you tuck the side pieces of the wrapper underneath it:
