Strong Roots Slimline Card

I have been enjoying creating with Strong Roots, the July 2021 Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart. I hope to finish and share my other cards throughout the rest of July. Here is a slimline card I created with the stamp set.

I used the same masking technique (and masks) I used when I created cards for the CTMH Strong Roots SOTM Blog Hop - July 2021.

On this card I used the following supplies from Close To My Heart:

  • My Acrylix™ Stamp Sets: Strong Roots — July Stamp of the Month (S2107), Time to Celebrate — May Stamp of the Month (S2005) - retired
  • Cardstock: French Vanilla (X6046), Sapphire (X5957)
  • Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pads: Black (Z2805)
  • Slimline Cards & Envelopes (X257) 
  • Cricut® Maker™ (HB1076)
  • Cricut® Collection: Cricut® Artbooking Digital Collection - if you do not have a Consultant, please shop for the digital collection via my Cricut® Affiliate Link, otherwise ask your Consultant for their affiliate link; I used the following shape: Rectangle Stamp (#M3F23D)
  • Supplies not from Close To My Heart: colored pencils (not watercolor pencils)

I have been thinking about it and am really wishing I thought to use some fall colors with this stamp set. I am looking forward to fall not only for the colors and smells, but for the cooler (hopefully) temperatures. I hope you are finding a way to keep cool during these high temperature and humidity days. Thank you for stopping by.
