One of the reasons I love making cards is because I give something of myself to the recipient, so the sentiment on this card is one of my favorites. It's also my first card as part of the new Color My Heart Design Team. Yeeee! Next week begins our official team duties. This week is just for fun, and the colors are neutrals.
this blog post.) The background script was created using Universal Background. The other CTMH products used here are white embossing powder, Artiste Cricut cartridge (for the notched paper), paper piercing, B&T paper (Vintage Travel, retired) Cocoa cardstock, and baker's twine. I also accented the flowers with white gel pens to give a little more white to tie in the white stripes of the B&T paper, baker's twine and embossed sentiment.
The overstamped (Treasures) images were stamped first in Chocolate, stamped on scratch paper to remove some ink, then rolled in Cocoa around the edges. The leaf was stamped in Bamboo then rolled lightly in Cocoa. The veins were hand drawn with the white gel pen.
I used a square punch to create the banner by angling Cocoa paper into the corner and eyeballing the center. Thank goodness for my new prescription glasses.
Now lest you think I came up with this card idea all by myself, I must give credit to Sheri Carroll. I highly encourage you to visit her blog and soak in all the creativity shared there.
Speaking of shared creativity, I have updated the sidebar of my blog with all the other Color My Heart design team ladies.
Until next time,
