Hello Lovely Blog Hop

Welcome to our Close to My Heart Hello Lovely Blog Hop! On this hop we will be showcasing items created by several talented Close To My Heart Independent Consultants using the Hello Lovely collection available in Seasonal Expressions 1.

If you are visiting from Haley Dyer’s blog then you are on the right track, if not please start at the beginning with our hostess Carol.

For today's hope I created this card using the Hello Lovely papers and Cardmaking Thin Cuts Bundle. I stamped the floral on vellum using VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Princess Gold Embossing Powder. I colored on the back of the vellum using ShinHan markers. Sometimes I colored the same space with two different markers to create different tones and I also colored some areas two or more time to try to create a deeper color.

I cut the vellum and a layer of White Daisy cardstock using the Thin Cuts. I used dots of liquid glue behind the embossing to attach the vellum to the White Daisy cardstock. I added this layer using 3-D Foam Tape. To create the bow I used the Adorable Little Bow video Close To My Heart posted to their Instagram account, except I did not staple the middle to "scrunch" the center, I just wrapped it with another piece of ribbon. The floral at the bottom of the card is a zip strip.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
If you are not already working with a CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Online Business Address.

Before you head to see what Erica Haskin created, please take a moment to let me know what you think of my card. I love to read your comments and I hope you are finding many ideas for using the Hello Lovely collection.
