CTMH Petal Card

Close to My Heart makes beautiful papers - all of their products are top quality including their stamps, inks, papers, and embellishments.  For this card, I used the Stella paper set.  The flower is cut on my Cricut using the Weaved Flower cutting file from Platypus Creek Digitals and the stamp is also from CTMH.  I separated the two bands with hemp twine and used the same hemp to encircle the center of the flower.  The design is based on a combination of two sketches (see below).

The picture is a bit crooked - I have to get better at taking photos of my work!

I will be entering this into the following challenges:
  1. CAS-ual Fridays # 49 - use colors that are opposite on the color wheel (blue and orange)
  2. Freshly Made Sketches # 30
  3. Stuck On You Sketches - Spring is In the Air
  4. Exploring Cricut - Flowers
  5. Unique Crafters Challenge - Paper Flowers
  6. House of Gill Challenge 31 - Flowers
  7. Ribbon Carousel Challenge 48 - use ribbon or twine  along with their sketch





The design is based on two sketches:
