Close To My Heart new product blog hop


Welcome! You've arrived at the Close To My Heart NEW Product blog hop! You're about to be inspired with great ideas for wonderful new products in our Autumn Winter 2013 Idea Book! Sit back and keep on clicking the links at the end of this blog!



This is a 7" x 5" side fold card I made using the Frosted papers and Happy Autumn stamp set. Even though Frosted has patterns that are definitely wintery, there are also patterns that are very neutral and will work any time of year and for any occasion! I did a little cutting of the flower petals and popped them up with a bit of 3D Foam. It's hard to tell in the photo, but in real life it gives some added dimension. As you can see, I also stamp rolled the flowers and leaves. I started with Twilight ink and rolled in Slate. I especially love stamp rolling flowers! The little sparkle flourish is another new item. It's just the right size when you want just a touch of a sparkly flourish! The message is from the Perfect Fit-Birthday and stamped in Slate. You can also see a background I made with a Cuttlebug folder because I wanted some real texture to layer the flowers against. The cardstock used is Colonial White, Slate and Crystal Blue.
