Now that it's August, CTMH has a new Idea Book!
And my new product order finally arrived, so of course I had to play.
This week over at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog, this week's challenge is to create something for a kid's birthday.
My card is made using B&Ts from the Roxie paper pack, just one of the 8 new paper packs now available.
I know quite a few little girls (friend's daughters) that will be turning 11 this year, and I thought this paper would work perfectly for a "tween" birthday card.
I used a few different new stamp sets on my card... "let's celebrate" and the numbers are from a set called Little Reminder (January SOTM), the lined paper image is from the Typeset Workshop On the Go kit, and "the best time of the year" is from a set called Pair-A-Phrase which will be available in an upcoming National Stamping Month special where you can get this double set for free with a $82 minimum order. Pair-A-Phrase has two stamps sets in one package; it's full of fun images and sentiments.
Since this is a girlie card, I felt it needed a touch of sparkle, so I added some onto the punched heart by clear embossing it with Prisma Glitter.
Happy creating! :)
