Here is the card I created this month.J

My card design came from our Wishes How-To Book.  This card's pattern is called "It's a Wrap"...and it is a slide out card.  

I used the NEW Heartstrings paper pack that works perfect with January's stamp set!! J 

Look at this BEAUTIFUL new paper pack!!  Those colors...those patterns...squeal! 

The arrow stamps in this set kept calling my name - so I decided to use them as part of my background. 

 By inking them in Whisper ink & stamping them on Whisper cardstock, it created a beautiful background. 

In creating the pull out part of this card...I wanted to add some texture to that piece inside.  The CTMH Scoring Board was the PERFECT answer!! 

I put my 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of white daisy cardstock on the Scoreboard, and scored all 4 sides in 1/4" inch from the edge to create the border.  

The Chevron border punch is one of my FAVORITE tools of CTMH's...and since we were already going with the arrow theme, I thought this may be the perfect addition! J

This is one of my favorite ways to use this punch...punch the chevron design into any designer paper of my choice...and then cut them apart into arrows to add as accents to my projects. 

Did you notice all the embellishment goodies on this one picture?  J
