Taylored Expressions January Spotlight: Hugs & Kisses

Hello! Welcome to the Taylored Expressions January Spotlight Day 2! All new products can be found in the TE Store in the Fresh Out of the Oven Department, HERE!

Today I am spotlighting the newest petite "jar" set, Hugs & Kisses, which comes with a coordinating die for the jar.

The background of my card uses the new Swirls Cutting Plate. I stamped and colored the jar and its XOXO contents, then I used the coordinating die to cut it out. Next I coated it with Crackle Accents, let it dry overnight and the result is what you see (below is a detail shot).
