Use your fingers to tear a tiny amount of paper off the long top and bottom edges of both pieces of designer paper.
Use your fingers to tear the torn designer paper strips down into small strips about 1/4" to 1/2" wide.
Put a line of Stampin' Seal down the center of one of the thin white strips of cardstock. Adhere the torn blue designer paper strips to it so they slightly overlap and cover the whole strip. Tear off any excess on the short ends.
Put a line of Stampin' Seal down the center of the other thin white strip of cardstock. Adhere the torn orangey-pink designer paper strips to it so they slightly overlap and cover the whole strip. Tear off any excess on the short ends.
Adhere the matted strips of torn designer paper to the center of the large Basic White rectangle so they slightly overlap.
Adhere the white rectangle with torn paper strips attached to the front of the Basic White Thick card.
Peel the protective backing off of the Foam Adhesive Sheets rectangle. Adhere the Foam Adhesive Sheets rectangle to one side of the Pale Papaya rectangle. Be sure to leave the other protective backing in place for now.
Pick out the "H," "U," "G," and "S" dies from the Playful Alphabet Dies. Put them on top of the Pale Papaya rectangle with Foam Adhesive Sheet on back on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the Pale Papaya (pale orange) side is face up. Make sure the dies do NOT overlap. Run through the machine. Use the paper-piercing tool on the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces. Leave the protective backings in place for now.
WITHOUT ADHERING, lay the Pale Papaya letter cut outs on top of the vellum rectangle to spell out "HUGS" and figure out spacing. When happy with the arrangement, adhere the cut outs in place one at a time by peeling off the protective backings.
Run a short line of Stampin' Seal horizontally across the card front in the center where the two lines of torn designer paper strips meet. Adhere the vellum with "HUGS" spelled out to the adhesive.
