I just fell in love with this new Close to My Heart paper pack. Who wouldn't? It is fun and exciting and just perfect for scrapbooking and cardmaking. I just love this new purple color that was introduced on August 1st, it is called Thistle. So here are some cards I made with it (stay tuned for scrapbook pages coming later this month).
This cute little card is just perfect to brighten up someones day. Who wouldn't smile if they received this in the mail? So here is how it is made:
Cut the following: Lagoon card stock cut to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" and folded to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" to make the card base. Now cut the Confetti Wishes B&T (this means Background and Texture or the three different two sided pattern paper that comes in each of the Close to My Heart paper packs) paper to 4 x 5 1/4", center and adhere to card base. Cut a piece of Daisy White card stock to 2 3/4 x 4" and stamp with the Happy Birds stamp set (color in using the Shin Han Touch Twin Markers or the color pencil). Mount that onto a piece of Lagoon card stock cut to 3 x 4 1/4" and mount that onto the center of the card using 3-D Foam tape to add that extra dimension.
Note: this card would look great with the lagoon replaced by the pacifica or the crystal blue card stock that comes in the paper pack as well.
This card was made by starting with the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" white daisy card base. I stamped Happy Birthday across the top using the Joyful Birthday stamp set. I then cut a piece of the Confetti Wishes B&T paper to 2 1/4 x 5 1/2" and mount it on the card base, I then took the second piece of the B&T paper which had the candles and the word celebrate across it and cut it following the movement of the sentiment, trimmed it to 5 1/2" and mounted that onto the previous piece of B&T paper. Finally, to add that little pop I added gold glitter tape and some purple glitter gems (because no card is complete without some bling).
Another birthday card but this one is a little more whimsical. I again started the card with the daisy white 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" card base. I then added a piece of the B&T paper cut to 4 x 5 1/4 and placed a square (2 1/2 x 2 1/2") of lagoon card stock (again the pacifica, crystal blue or even the canary included in the paper pack would work great here) mounted to the right side of the card (about 3/4" from the bottom and right). I then mounted a piece of other side of the B&T paper measuring 1/2 x 5 1/2" about 1" up from the bottom of the card and over the square of lagoon. I then stamped a piece of the daisy white that is 1 1/2 x 4 3/4" with the sentiment and flower from the Lovely Birthday stamp set and cut a v in the end for interest. Finally here comes that "bling" again, a 2" piece of gold glitter tape and three gold sequins make the card complete.
