Welcome back to the Divas Blog! Today I have a birthday card to share with you that I made for a friend this spring. I wanted to play with all my new CTMH toys, so included many different embellishments. The card base is cut from the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cartridge. I adore the scallop on the edge of this cut. I couldn’t help but be inspired to wrap our fabulous baker’s twine around the grooves. I love that the shape of the card helps to keep it in place! Where do I begin with the rest? I stamped a cork star from the Color-Ready Evergreen Collection with Sunset Ink using the Typeset Workshop Acrylix Set. The big brown grooved button adds another texture and is from the Buttons Basic Assortment. I used two past Stamp of the Month sets called, Little Reminder and Thoughtful Tidings for the calendar months, numbers, and sentiment. Are you ready for a shock? The chipboard circle that has the numbers stamped on it is a leftover from the My Originals Sweet Surprises Card Kit! Yep, most people would throw this scrap away after punching it out, but I am a paper
hoarder collector. 😉 I keep everything because I never know when I might have a use for it later. Now, you might recognize this background paper from the Dotty for You promotion. I will go back to it time and again because it is so versatile! Thanks for stopping by!
