A Hug for You

This was a fun card to make. I did the cutting last night while we were watching
Water for Elephants. Little did I know when I ordered this movie from Netflix
 last week that it would be the recipient of the People's Choice Award for the
 Best Drama Movie. I read the book a few years ago and liked it very much.
They showed the previews for Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. I will have to see
if I can get that on Netflix. If you have not read that book, it is wonderful!!!

The template for this card is from Cardmaking Paradise and you can print it off  HERE.

After I cut it out, I used three papers from a 6 x 6 pack that SU
came out with last year. I love those packs because all the papers coordinate
with each other. I traced the letters on the back side of the paper so
the pencil marks would not show.

I cut a small slit in the fold with my Exacto knife
so I could run the ribbon through it. This allowed you to open the card..

And, did I not have the perfect sentiment for the inside??

If you can't read it, it says,
"This is not an ordinary greeting card,
it's a hug with a fold in the middle."

I love it when a plan comes together!
