I had purchased the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge a while back and had never taken the time to play with it ~ I decided a couple of days ago that I needed to learn how to make the flowers from that cart that everyone is using. So, I sat down and worked with them. They're really pretty easy!! I decided I'd use them on a Thanksgiving card, along with using the cartridge to make the card base, the contrasting panels, and the leaves. I LOVE this cart ~ so many pretty things to cut with it!
The papers are all from my stash. I added the inside and outside sentiments with Studio G stamps from Walmart using Colorbox Chestnut Roan ink. The bow was made using my Bow Easy and some satin ribbon from Walmart. The pine leaves were punched with MS and McGill punches. I dry embossed the gold leaves with the SU square lattice embossing folder. The flowers were sprayed with Smooch Shimmer Spray, and I added a couple of gold rhinestones for the centers. A couple of orange and gold rhinestones finish off the card.
I visited my local Walmart this morning, and they had just put out all of the new Christmas stuff from Studio G. Love it ~ quite a bargain at 97 cents each!!! Those bins will be empty within a couple of days!
Hope you have a wonderful day!
