Here we go!

Do you remember this BEAUTIFUL, Blossom collection from years ago?? 

It was a pretty one then---and so Gorgeous now!! 

I ADORE the NEW items included in this collection---the 12x12 sticker sheet & LOVELY Stamp/Thin Cut bundle named Cherished Blossoms! with all of our Monthly Specials ---we EVEN have a DISCOUNTED BUNDLE Blossom Kit -- that includes ALL of the NEW goodies at a 20% DISCOUNT! :) :)  (these are all US pricing) 

It's time to hop on over & take a look at the card I created, using this Blossom paper collection. 

I was INSPIRED by a Consultant workshop that we have, and it includes a bunch of "Fancy-Fold" cards.  This card is a regular Card base size, but then adds a few extra sheets of paper to make it open in a different way. 

As I begin to open up the card, you'll notice that the square "opens up" and it turns into a tri-fold type card!  Yay! 

Let's take a closure look at the FRONT of the card.

The flowers in this set are so pretty...and the COLORS --- Smoothie, Nectarine, Lagoon, Green Apple---they are such a LOVELY color combination! 

I'm sorry my photos are not of better quality! I plan to take better photos in the daylight tomorrow ;) ....bUT---you may see that the background has a design to it? This was done using our 12x12 Stencil Sheets and Lagoon ink.  You can see a better image of this sponged background in a photo later in this post. 

Here is the pack of stencils I used for this design....
It's the top, left stencil...this is one of my FAVORITE stencils, as there are NINE different patterns to choose from!! 

This does come as a 3 pack---and these stencils are a CLEAR 12x12 plastic that is so easy to clean!!  I ADORE these New items too! 

I wanted to use this BEAUTY of a stamp set on my card---and am so EXCITED that CTMH created a BRAND NEW, never before released Stamp & thin Cut set to go with our Updated Blossom Collection!  

Here's a look at the entire set!! 

I LOVE that it includes so many Thin Cuts (metal dies) which makes it so QUICK & EASY to create!  When I create a card, I always cut extra shapes & will even stamp them with the image too.  That way, when I come back to this stamp set again, I can quickly use the inked-up images on a card I may be needing to send in a flash. 

This photo here---is the inside of the card.  I like to leave the insides blank, that way I can either Stamp another sentiment, OR I enjoy writing out a longer message too. 

If you look closely, you'll notice I also used the Stencil image and lightly used the Lagoon ink to give a background to my writing space.  
A strip of Gold Glitter paper at the bottom, added a bit of extra sparkle to tie the outside & inside of the card together.

Before we go--you'll want to make SURE to gaze at the BEAUTY of the  Blossom Paper collection...and yes there is a 12x12 Sticker Sheet included in this photo too. :)  This paper is ONLY available until February 28,2021, OR While Supplies Last. 

I hope you enjoyed my card creations & that you were INSPIRED today!! :) 

Now it's time to "Hop" on over to Maureen's Blog to see her beautiful creation!
