Simple Hello

Good Morning! Today I would like to share a card with you I created for the Cricut is Close To My Heart blog which showcases projects created with Close To My Heart products. Click HERE
 for my shopping page.
This is a very simple card made from the Dotty For You paper pack. These double sided papers all coordinate together, and the colors are just so fun. I have cut the card base to 5x5 and rounded the corners. The yellow layer was cut at 4x4. The diagonal strips were scrap pieces cut into one inch strips, then lined up and the edges trimmed off. The stamp set, A Tree from CTMH, was used for this card. Stamped on the green paper from the pack and hand cut. The butterfly and sentiment are also in the set.
I then added CTMH twine in Smoothie around the layer. This was easy to do as there was just the slightest edge from the layer, so the placement was straight. The cut out tree was then popped up on foam tape and placed over the twine for some dimension. I added some little stitch lines for the butterfly to show direction. For just a touch of bling, I added some Liquid Glass detail to the tree and sprinkled Prisma glitter before it dried. The card edges were inked with Blush ink and the images were stamped with Olive ink.
There are just a few days left in June. Just enough time to check out the CTMH promotion on stamp sets. It is buy 2 get 1 free of equal or lesser value. A great deal. We all need MORE stamps, right?!!!
I hope you have enjoyed today's card. Please come on over to the BLOG for other awesome projects and inspiration! Have a great day!
