A Cristmas Card

I spent this past week, putting the finishing touches on a Christmas Card for Matt. I'm thinking I will send this to him in Boot Camp. Hopefully the DI will not make fun of him for getting a card.

All of the products I used are from Close to My Heart. I used the Merry Pursuits stamps, Grey Flannel and Citrus Leaf Cardstock. The sentiment is from the Wonderful Season Stamp Set and reads: Have Yourself (on the front) and Merry Little Christmas (on the inside) and is stamped in Grey Flannel. I also added a sprinkling of Primsa Glitter for some sparkle.

I just love these little guys. Sooo much fun. You can also see that I took my color combination from the card that I saw posted here. Only thing I still want to do is add the white inking around the edges. I'm still waiting for my ink to come in.

Anniversary Card

Here is a card I made for my husband for our Anniversary. All items with the exception of Ranger's Distressing Embossing Powder are from Close to My Heart, for which I am a consultant, so if anyone needs anything....




Paper is Close To My Heart's "Sarsaparilla". I inked the edges with CTMH's Autumn Terracotta inks and then dyed the natural twill ribbon with the same ink color. The Stamp is from CTMH's Steep and Deep set. Stamped in CTMH's Chocolate ink, embossed with Ranger's Distressed Embossing Powder then embossed again with CTMH clear EB. The sentiment was hand written using CTMH's chocolate pen.
