September's Hearts of the West Blog Hop

Welcome to the Hearts of the West team blog hop! September's Edition. If this is your first time joining us you will love it. It features Close to my Heart Consultants from all over Canada showing you their projects. The hearts of the west was founded by Nancy Klein.
This months challenge is Pathfinding paper pack, brought to you by the new Annual Inspirations, hand picked by Nancy Klein.

If you came from Freya Hall Dunbar's Blog then you're in the right place, this is a go around blog so you can start anywhere! Just in case the full list will be at the bottom. SO as always grab your coffee, tea, water, relax and hop around the team with us.

I've been travelling and enjoying the outdoors this summer and have been neglecting my projects and craft room. I'm sure I'm not the only one!!  As my crafting "to do" list is getting longer I  decided to use this paper pack to also make cards for my monthly CTMH card swap. 

I used both the Pathfinding paper pack (X7186B) and complements (X7186C)

I used the thin 3d foam tape (Z2060) to layer my sentiment- from the You mean the world to me stamp set (B1467) and regular foam dots for the chipboard piece. I placed the flower chipboard on the edge of the flap to keep the card closed. 

There were a few different shapes so I used all the flowers. I added a piece a bronze shimmer trim (Z1849) to add some sparkle and some durables triangle studs (Z1928) on the top of the fold.


On the inside of my card I used the Fabulous You stamp set (C1533) and the wood grain washi tape(discontinued).

My card wouldn't be complete without a matching envelope! I used the Thank you from the pretty petals stamp set (C1599).

  6. Love the design of the card, but have a couple of questions. What size is the finished card and is the flap on the right side an additional piece of paper? Love the 'pop' with the bronze shimmer paper! TFS your talents and inspiring us to get our creative juices flowing.
