Pocket Hug


I had the inspiration from social media.

I made this for a friend who is social distancing and finding it difficult particularly because it was her late husbands birthday on the weekend.

I cut a DL card in half. I covered the white card with lilac card. I cut all the corners with a punch.
I printed the sentiments and cut them to size. I found the small heart in my stash. I added the die cut sentiment that I die cut with a die from a nesting set from The Works. I attached these elements to the card. I added ribbon to the heart and attached it to my card using a paper fastener so the recipient can remove it.
