Now these papers may look a bit familiar to those who know their Close to my Heart products. That is because it was a special last April/May 2010. CTMH brought out 2 patterned papers in a special pack that created 4 scrapbook pages. I LOVED the papers then and I LOVE them NOW!! The colors in this pack are SO soft and can be used for SO many different occasions. I put pictures of my Daughter Rachael the day that she took her driver's test and received her license. The colors that her and her cousin Mariah were wearing matched the papers PERFECTLY! If you have not seen the pages......I have posted them to my blog under "Miracle".
Onto the card......I wanted to point out one of CTMH's newest accents. I have to be honest, when I first saw the "Color Ready Kraft Borders" in the Spring/Summer 2011 Idea Book, I said YUCK!! BUT they come in the "Miracle" Workshop on the Go Kit. Seeing them in person and then playing with them made ALL the difference in the world! I LOVE THEM!!!!! Can't wait to use them for MANY more cards and pages and paper projects! SUPER COOL PRODUCT!
The butterfly is the same one as above from the "Sweetheart" Workshop on the Go Kit. The stitched swirls and words are from the stamp set that is included in the "Miracle" Workshop on the Go Kit. A little story about THIS butterfly. I had everything done on this card with the exception of the Butterfly in the center and was stumped as to what color I should make the butterfly. My friend Lori suggested that I use Twilight Ink and stamp it on the Sweet Leaf Patterned paper from the kit. So, I did and I LOVED it!! I just love scrapping with friends as there is nothing better than putting our creative heads together and coming up with something that I would have not come up with on my own! Thanks Lori!!!
The middle square has a background stamped image on it and is also pop dotted for dimension. Hard to see from this pic. The inside parts of the wings on the butterfly have Liquid Glass on them to also add dimension. The little flower buttons are NEW and in the Basic Button Collection. LOVE THEM!!
