Mojo Monday - Just Because card

I was so excited to get a few moments to create a card for a wonderful customer of mine!  I appreciate her so very much!  She always shares so much with me & I’m so thankful we became friends because of Close To My Heart & our love of papercrafting! J

In creating her a card, I decided to use some of  Close To My Heart retiring items. (these items end July 31st OR while supplies last!  Click here for the most current retired list J)

When I was thinking about what card to create….I happened upon the Mojo Monday sketch & decided to give that a try!
Here’s the Mojo Monday sketch for this week…

I enjoy using sketches to get me started…especially when I feel my creative juices have gone away. J Here’s the card I created using this sketch!

Retiring items I used to create this card…

X7178B Ivy Lane Paper pack

Z1895 Base & Bling purple jewels

I will miss the smokey plum & olive colors in Ivy Lane’s paper pack!!  But as you know, when a beautiful paper collection goes away at CTMH there are some more NEW paper packs that will be debuting on August 1st!!

As I looked at my card, I knew I needed something else….so I added a few NEW items to complete this design!! 

Take a look at a new STAMP set that will be available on August 1st!  This new stamp set is called “Have a  Happy Day”.  (Stamp set images are the flowers, leaves, bracket, wording, branches on tan paper) I can’t WAIT to show you this entire stamp set!  I know it’s a stamp set I will be using often!! 
Ivy Lane_just because_cu DSC_3238I wanted to add some sparkle & shine, so I pulled out the NEW purple 12x12 Glitter paper!! Wahoo!!  I love how glitter paper adds so much to ANY creation!!

Glitter Paper

If you don’t already own CTMH’s glitter’ll want to make sure you get some!  They come in a variety of 4 different sets of colors and each pack comes with (3) 12x12 sheets.  

This glitter paper IS Cricut compatible, and is a wonderful accent for ANY of your creations!!  In this case, I used our wonderful Scallop Border Punch to create that beautiful scalloped edge on this glitter paper.  I use this punch so often!! 

By using CTMH’s 5x7 embossing folder, I added some more texture & dimension to the background of this card, completing this card.

I hope this has inspired you to create something of your own!  Have a wonderful day!! 

Blessings to EACH of you!!
