Thanksgiving

It's Monday and time for another Heart 2 Heart reveal!  We are challenging you to use three colors from the beautiful Close To My Heart palette.  (Remember, you must use Close To My Heart products to play at Heart 2 Heart.)  We'd like to see a project using the combination of Bamboo, Juniper, and Autumn Terracotta


Aren't these colors lovely together?  They make a wonderful Thanksgiving card.  I'll tell you a little about my card.  The flowers were cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge, and I added a little bronze glitter gel to the top.  I added that wonderful bronze gel to the edges of my stamped leaves as well.  By popping the leaves up, I balanced out the 3-dimension of the flowers.  I added a strip of juniper ribbon to the card and then created a paper pleat to put on top of the ribbon.  That metal piece is one of our foundry bookplates (I love these).  Isn't that a nice stamp inside the bookplate?  That is the November Stamp of the Month called Cherish the Day, and I will be telling you much more about that in the coming days!

I am sad to say that this is my last post as Heart 2 Heart design team member.  I have loved being on this team and "meeting" the other members!  I so love Close To My Heart products and this was a wonderful opportunity to bring even more ideas to life, and I so appreciate the time I have spent with them!
