You Are So Loved

Can you believe that Valentine's Day is just around the corner? I know that I better get started on my cards now if I want to be ready!

The sketch at Freshly Made Sketches inspired me to use some newer and older items. One of the brand new items from Close To My Heart are the versatile Basic Fundamental papers. These double sided papers are incredible. One side has a glossy resist pattern, while the other side in the same pattern is a flat, non-glossy design. This paper with a tiny heart pattern was perfect for this cute little banner that I found at a local craft store made by Me&My Big Ideas company. It too has a shiny quality on the gold banners and some glitter on the bitty hearts. In my older stash of goodies, I pulled some assorted hearts from my Heidi Swapp collection and sprayed them in Sweet Cherry Color Shine mist. Just a bit of glitter glitz was added to these to match the other elements.


 
 
At a closer look you can really see all the glitter and shine of all these products together. Even the Washi tape has some glimmer!
 


 
The Fundamental papers and that gold polka-dot Washi tape are available now for purchase. You can order online here or with me personally.
