Stella Thank You Card - Peek at New CTMH Goodies!

I just can't get enough of this new Stella paper from Close to my Heart. I adore the colors. In fact, someday if I have a baby girl this just might be my inspiration for her nursery. You'll see the paper soon in the brand new Idea Book, which you can find HERE on Feb. 1!

I used another new item, the Just for You stamp set. That gorgeous flower pairs perfectly with the Stella paper. And the flower matches with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, so you can cut them out in a jiffy! This is definitely one of my new favorite stamp sets. The flourish is from a set that came out in the fall called Love Life, which is another favorite of mine!

To give the flower some dimension, I curled the petals up with my piercing tool. I first wrapped just the edge up on the skinny metal part, then wrapped the whole petal around the wider wooden part. Then I put the cocoa flower center on foam to give it more dimension.

My inspiration came from Mary's card here, which was inspired by a Mojo Monday sketch.

I made several of these cards to send with the new Idea Book to some of my customers, and added a few different embellishments to the centers of the flowers. You, too, can get an Idea Book in the mail for free if you spend $40 or more with me! Or you can view it online HERE beginning Feb. 1.
