New Colors from Close To My Heart

In July 2019 I shared the colors that were retiring from CTMH on August 31. Now, with the release on September 1 of the Core Products Idea Book, it is time to talk about the new colors.

Close To My Heart Exclusive Color Palette
To show some of the new colors I created this card using Sangria, Paprika, Evergreen and French Vanilla.

Card created with Random Act of Cardness/Sep 2019 SOTM (S1909)
I has planned to use the same Chevron Pattern with a Twist that I used on the New Product Blog Hop (where I featured the new colors Wisteria, Lemonade, Evergreen and Julep), but this time I was not happy with how the colors looked when the strips were cut apart and put together. I started playing around with the strips and came up with this. It reminds me of some older postal icons, especially air mail icons. In addition to the new colors I used the following items:
I was able to hide the Mini Dots behind the word "smile". I hope you like how I further cut down the strips and layered the colors back together.

Let's talk about the gorgeous, new colors.
