Close To My Heart has a very elegant stamp set named 'Bonjour' which includes five French sentiments. I used this stamp set along with papers from the Dream Pop paper packet to create a card which can be featured on two different 'challenge' Blog Sites. The paper is a "sneak peek" at the special that will be available during the month of May for 'National Scrapbooking Month'.
This week, the Heart 2 Heart Challenge is "Button Up" and buttons must be used in the creations. Even though this card only has one button, any more would have just been a distraction. The other 'challenge' blog is a new one to me. It is CAS(E) this sketch! and each week they feature a clean and simple card challenge. Sketch #24 is shown below for comparison to my completed card.
This clean and simple card combines Slate and Honey card stock with the Grey cardstock from Dream Pop which has a unique glossy resist pattern that adds texture and pop to your creations. The small colored triangles are simply cut from a strip of the patterned paper in the Dream Pop kit and added on top of a strip of Silver Shimmer Trim. The 'Bonjour' image from the Bonjour stamp set is stamped using Slate Pigment ink and then embossing with Clear Detail Embossing Powder. This gives the sentiment the same shine and texture as the chevron stripes of the Grey card stock.
All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
