One of the awesome benefits of being a Close To My Heart consultant is that convention attendees get to purchase new product bundles at a sweet discount! These bundles are a great mix of paper, stamps, & embellishments. One of the bundles I purchased this past summer included the Flourishes stamp set.
The Annual Inspirations artwork shows this set used on a layout. With the large words & flourishes, it is definitely a great fit. But, I thought with the Hello or Celebrate You it would make a great card.
This card design comes from the Make It From Your Heart, Volume 1 pattern book, Design 21. I decided to use these simple elements to build the card around the Celebrate You sentiment.
The Celebrate You is stamped in Goldrush – I tried, Poppy, New England Ivy, and Sapphire which are in the same Enchantment Palette as these papers, but the Goldrush really just looked the best. Then I framed the sentiment with Fern cardstock and layered the patterned pieces on the card.
I then embellished the sentiment with coordinating Bronze Sequins and add small bits of burlap on the edges. Both the colors and the patterns on this card make it great for anyone. Plus it’s so easy, you can finish it off in no time.
Here are the products I used in making this card. If you aren’t currently working with a CTMH consultant, feel free to contact me or shop directly on my CTMH site – gerri.closetomyheart.com.
