Hampster Hugs!

Good Morning Friends

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  I certainly did!  It was so much fun spending time with my family.  Today,  I am starting to make my Valentine cards if you can believe it!  I am using one of our adorable new release pet dies!

Designer Steps:
 1.  Using the Happy Hampster die cut out the wheel using a metalic silver, cut out the hampsters using light brown and brown card stock.  Cut the little teeth on white and the little tuffs of fur in dark brown card stock
2.  Use TH inks to shade the hampsters and assemble them
3.  Start by using a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of white card stock scored at 2 3/4 inches and 5 1/2 inches
4.   Cut an 11 x 1 1/2 inch piece of white card stock and score at 5 1/2 and 8 1/4
5. Cut Pink card stock 1 piece 4 x 5 1/4 and 2 pieces 4 x 2 1/2 set aside
6.  Cut Pink Heart DP  1 piece 3 3/4 x 5 and 2 pieces 3 3/4 x 2 1/4.  Glue the Pink DP to the pink card stock  and then attach to the card
7.  Cut pink card stock 1 piece 1 1/4 x 5 1/4 and 2 pieces 2 1/2 x 1 1/4.  Emboss each piece and then glue the pink card stock to the white strip

8.  Attach the strip to the card making sure you only place glue on the first 4th of the strip and the last 4th of the strip.  The middle fold will pop out toward you as you fold the card
9.  Cut out the Hugs using the Stitched Alphabet die on white card stock
10.  Glue the Hampster onto the wheel and then glue to the front flap.  Glue the Hugs to the front strip as shown
11.  Glue the other little Hampster to the inside on top of the strip as shown
12.  Cut out 2 red hearts using the Stitched Cupcake die pop them inside the hampsters mouths

13.  Stamp your sentiment and glue inside the card
