Heart 2 Heart Challenge

Well I'm going to start out this week with a post for the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog as this is my team's turn as Designers.  We were given a photo to inspire this week.  Check out the photo below: 

There were so many things to inspire in this photo that it took me a while to decide which way to go with my project.  I finally decided on a card and this is what I came up with:

Pin It

When I first saw the original photo, I immediately thought of Close to My Heart's Stella paper.  Stella!!!!  Two of the coordinating colors just popped out to me:  Lagoon and Sunset.  I chose a new stamp set that I just got that I absolutely love.  It's a stamp set called "Thanks".  I also used our exclusive Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to help me with my card.

These are the images I cut:
Half scallop:  p. 42, C2, < oval3 > at 1" (cut 5 of them)
Pennants:  p. 68, E8, < banner1 > at 3 1/2" (cut 4 of them)
Oval:  p. 42, C2, < oval3 > at 2 3/4"

We would love to see what you come up with for this challenge.  Go right over to the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog and join us.  All you need to do is be inspired (and use Close to My Heart products).  Hope to see you there.


  1. I think you did a great job of using elements of the photo to inspire your card design! :-)
