Here we go!

We have some BEAUTIFUL, new papers, embellishments & products in the NEW Seasonal Expressions 2 (SE2) book!! It was hard to choose what items to create with. ;) 

Here is today's card...

I started by looking at our Cardmaking volume 3, Make it From Your Heart How-To-Book, and found  pattern #13...and this card came to life! :)  

I was excited to use TWO of our NEWEST paper packs from the Seasonal Expression 2 mini-book!!
The Floral designed paper, comes from our Documented collection...and the pink striped paper comes from our Beautiful Friendship paper suite.  Take a look at these BEAUTIFUL papers!!

I wanted to stamp some type of sentiment on the front of this card. I love the writing style of this NEW stamp set - Shell Sentiments.  

Next, I was so EXCITED to use the NEWEST Thin Cuts we have at CTMH!!  Take a look at these STITCHED metal dies we call Thin Cuts!! 

We now have CIRCLE, HEART & OVAL stitched dies!!! 
AND....what's even better...they coordinate with our Basic Shapes dies in these styles!! :) :) 
The Stitched dies can be matted by the Basic Shape die cuts!!  Wahooo CTMH!!
