Hello and Bear Hugs with Tonic Studios

I recently discovered Tonic Studio's 8 x 8 paper packs and had some fun designing cards with them. This kraft bear paper was from the Christmas Wishes pack showing that many of the sheets can be used for other than Christmas cards. I die cut the Hello Miniature Moments die out of a piece of the bear patterned paper and lined it up on the matching card front. I applied Nuvo Spring Green Embellishment Mousse to the Hello word and inlaid it back into the opening. 

Each of the winter and Christmas paper packs have sheets of sentiments in the back and how perfect is this "Bear Hugs" piece for this card? I die cut the "Sending" from Tonic's Sending a Big Hug Semi Die Set. I think this easy to make card would be perfect for a masculine hello or thinking of you card.

I am entering this card in the For the Boys challenge at Win & Tonic, the Anything Goes challenge at Scrapy Land and the Outdoor Fun challenge at Dies R Us.
