A Close To My Heart Card Swap

not just a regular card swap............................................



 This is my favorite card to look at today. What you see is a card made with 100% of Close To My Heart products.  The card stock is from La Belle Vie  paper packet. I used both of CTMH's exclusive cricut cartridges the new Artiste cartridge for the Eiffel Tower, the roses and the label and Art Philosophy cartridge was used for the leaves.  I used the stamp set Jardin and the stamp set that is included in the Work Shops on the go  La Belle Vie Scrapbooking Kit. I also used the lovely dyeable ribbon, black tulle ribbon, bling assortment, and tiny grey and black rhinestones. The ink pads that I used were sorbet, smoothie, holly hock, smokey plum, bamboo and desert sand.  I used the sorbet reinker and water to color my ribbon.  The roses were made by cutting out three different sizes of roses from the Artiste cartridge and rolling them up and shaping the petals.  If you are interested in any of the CTMH products  click on this link here  Michelle Nist. Michelle is my neighbor and she can get you the stuff.  For the swap I made 10 identical cards plus one for me to keep.




here is what a group of the cards looks like.  I was very busy that day.

What a gorgeous card Linda. Love your color combo and the totally vintage look! Great to have you back blogging - I've missed your creativity.

I don't even know what to say - your project is so beautiful, Linda. The flowers are amazing. How did your sweet little fingers actually turn those into such gorgeous pieces of nature? BTW, thanks for your help with my orchid. It is already blooming again, and it has only been 2 months since the last of the blooms dropped off! I left it planted as is and watered a little with african violet fertilizer. LOL Is it beginner's luck?
