Slimline Card Blog Hop

Welcome to the Slimline Card Blog Hop! 

Slimline cards have been very popular for some time now - and Close To My Heart offers some products specifically for that card size. 

You should have arrived here from Brenda Lapp's blog. If you get lost along the way, a complete list of participants can be found on Melinda Everitt's blog

I wanted to create a card for a special friend. The woodgrain paper was a perfect setting for the flowers I used, which are from the stamp set Friendship is a Blessing. I stamped and coloured the flowers and then fussy cut them. The woodgrain background was cut into two stitched rectangles and the cross piece allows the gap there to be covered. I stamped the sentiment in two colours and die cut that piece along with a background using the Stitched Hexagon Thin Cuts. A few Gold Glitter Gems and some Gold Embellishing Thread was added. The last step was to brush the centres of the flowers and the flower lines with the Gold Shimmer Brush. 

I hope you enjoyed my project.
