Let’s take a closer look at our 2nd card!

I LOVED how quick & easy this card turned out to be!! 

This pattern of this card is similar to Pattern #21 in the NEW Make It From Your Heart, volume 2 how-to book.  It’s fun to take a sketch…and change it around to make your own creation!

This how-to book is full of FRESH, NEW, INVIGORATING sketches that I am having so much fun with!! 

With (16) 2 page layouts, (2) 1 page layouts and 12 card sketches…this book will give you SO MANY ideas for a LONG time ~ especially when you look at the sketch, turn it 1/4 turn and get a TOTAL NEW look of that card design!!

The final card details - after cutting the 1 1/4” squares for this card, I inked the edges with Cocoa ink.  

I also used a NEW stamp set (Sincere Expressions) to stamp the “Thinking of You” wording.

Do you know the BEST thing about this NEW stamp set??? 

Well - there are actually TWO things…first, I LOVE the 5 different sayings, and the font that they are written in.

Second, this stamp set is ONLY $6.95!!! I LOVE Close To My Heart’s prices!!
Next on this card, I used our Bronze Shimmer trim (LOVE that it is adhesive backed!) for the border at the bottom. 

I then cut out this FABULOUS little bow from the Artiste Cartridge using our pack of Brown & Tan 12x12 Glitter paper
(YES- this paper is Cricut cuttable! {is that a word?} )
Key G - Artiste
By adding a Brown & Tan sparkle to the middle of the bow, the card was complete!!

Now, feel free to head to your OWN craft area, and create away! Thanks so much for stopping by!  If you have a moment, I'd love to hear what YOU have been creating recently!  Just drop me a line in the comment box below. J
