I always love sending hugs in the mail, especially when I’m apart from the people I love and miss dearly. The idea of being able to send a paper hug was the inspiration behind the new die set that I designed for Simon Says Stamp called Giant Hugs Card Wrap!

Another set I designed for the STAMPtember® release was the Paper Hug stamp and coordinating die set. When creating that set, I designed the sentiments so that they would work for not only the images in the Paper Hug set, but also the Giant Hugs Card Wrap die. I paired a couple of greetings from Paper Hug with my card.

The background behind my hugging arms was made with scraps of colored cardstocks, and I added sequins from Simon’s new Holographic Rainbows mix.

The cool part about the Giant Hugs Card Wrap die is that you can fold the arms at any point to allow the hands to fit on any card size, including A2, A7 and slimline! I hope you will watch my video to see how I created this card!

    Love this idea! I’m new to card making and wondered if you might do another video showing ideas for A2 cards both horizontal and vertical using these wonderful hugging hands dies. Thanks for both creating and sharing.

    Love the giant hugs die set and the card you made with it. Love your new stamp set, too. Seems there is always someone who can use a hug, perhaps now more than ever, so I know I will get great use from these products. Thanks for sharing your card and showing us how to use this wonderful die set!
