Hugs & Kisses

Project #29
A2 size card ( 5 1/2" x 4 1/4")
Card base is glittered cardstock from DCWV The Blossom Song.

Digi Image is Pre-Colored from PINK CAT STUDIO.
Image is inked around the edges with Blue Chalk ink from Colorbox.
The image's 3-layer matting is from ELEGANT EDGES "Leaves" p. 29 cut @ 4 and 4 1/4 with one Shadow.

Sunshine from CREATE A CRITTER p. 52 cut @ 1 3/4".

Here's a little side not about the Sunshine cut in the Create A Critter cartridge.
You can clearly see on the manual sunshine image that it's suppose to have pink, round cheeks. When cutting this image it cuts out holes where the pink is suppose to shine through, just like it cuts out holes for the yes and mouth to show through as black from the previous layer. However, no where on this page does it provide the pink cheeks to cut. Hmmm.... Maybe I'm missing it. I ended up looking for another cut in this book with pink cheeks and cutting out their pink circles. I found if I cut the cheeks the same size as the sun (1 1/4"), then the pink cheek circles just feel through the holes on the sunshine's face. So I ended up cutting them at 2".

Sentiment stamp from Cardz TV Stamps "Encouraging Thoughts" set.
