Hugs!!! Time for a quick and simple card featuring the Stampin' Up! Lovely Words thinlit "hugs" die, Tranquil Tide (new In Color) and a sweet floral pattern from the Pick a Pattern designer paper package!
I probably would not have thought about combining Tranquil Tide and Flirty Flamingo, but since Stampin' Up! did it in the Pick a Pattern paper, I went with that combo and really love how it turned out!
My base card is a 4-1/4" square Tranquil Tide cardstock card, and the 4" square floral piece is from the Pick a Pattern paper pack.
The Lovely Words "hugs" Flirty Flamingo thinlit die pulls the color together on this card.

I have 3 tips to share with you when creating this card!!
Above, I found it helpful to add the 4"x4" piece of designer paper to my folded Tranquil Tide card, then add the Lace Doily, then wrap the Tranquil Tide ribbon around the card front with the seam in the front. It will get covered, so don't worry. Then add the Stitched Shape circle framelit and then the "hugs" die.
Above: I added Clear Wink of Stella to the "HUGS" die cut and it added just the right touch of sparkle!
Above: Don't forget to decorate the inside of your card. Especially when you have a dark card like this Tranquil Tide card, add a piece of Whisper White (or any light color) and stamp it for added interest. The flowers are stamped in Flirty Flamingo and are found in the Wood Words stamp set.
Did you see that totally adorable little Tranquil Tide bow!?
Well, might be hard to see in the photo... but guess what.. I added Wink of Stella to it, too!!! You can find them in all the new Stampin' Up! colors on pae 197 in the 2017 Stampin' Up! catalog.
