Stampendous Holiday Hugs Cardmaking Ideas

Hello! I’m Jen Kotas from Who Stole My Glitter and I’m happy to be back today to share three cards featuring the Stampendous Holiday Hugs Collection. There are three adorable character die sets in the collection that I’ve turned into shaped cards. There are also coordinating stamp sets to add cute details or sentiments.

You could turn these shaped cards into tags by punching a hole in the card base and then adding twine or ribbon. To avoid seeing the back of the cardstock colors when the card is open, die-cut pieces out of white to back things like the hat and beard.
