Hello and welcome back to another round of the Close To My Heart Featured Products Blog Hop, where this week we will be inspiring you with projects made from the Magical paper kit. This is such a fresh, energetic kit that I dare you to work with it and not feel happy, lol. Blog hops are circular things so you should have found your way here from Jen's blog blog but you are welcome to jump in anywhere along the way and just follow the links until you've made the rounds, but don't forget to hop on over to Corinna's blog when you're done here.
Happy crafting and have a fun and safe 4th of July! ~~ Annette
Here is the complete list of blog hop participants this week:
1. Jenifer Benner
2. Annette Clark (here)
3. Corinna Murphy
details: As stated, I used the Magical paper kit. This one features multiple bright colors so I made a point to use each one of them in this card. I started with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" card base in Sapphire and this multi-colored heart patterned paper cut at 4 x 5 1/4." The center piece of white CS measures 2 1/4 x 3 1/4" and it is backed by a 2 1/2 x 3 1/2" piece of Crystal Blue CS. I didn't cut the banner to any certain size but just stamped on a scrap of white CS and cut it down to size so it measures approximately 9/16 x 3" and the yellow dotted background paper is 13/16 x 3 1/4." The "happy birthday" sentiment is stamped in Sapphire using the Banner Wishes set, and I used a long-retired stamp set called "Childhood Portrait" for the grass, tree, and boy/girl images. I used two different small heart images from the Forever In My Heart set in Cranberry ink. The final touch was a bow made from Whisper Thick Twine.
