CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Call for BACK-UP

Back Up...
Who doesn't need a little back up
...even in paper crafting?

The technique in the Annual CTMH Book demonstrates using our chevron punch. Well, I don't have the chevron punch! SHHHH..no grasping! So, I improvised and used one of our wonderful Cricut cartridges.

The idea behind this technique is to use a punch or cut out to create a design and then to back the cut out  or negative space with fabulous paper for a unique look.

I used the Cricut Artfully Sent Cartridge to cut a 5 x &  "Thinking of You" card from our beautiful Blossoms Paper. Then I used a piece of solid Lagoon cardstock to "back-up" and fill the words in "Thinking of You". I like the contrast between the lagoon and Blossom's paper. I completed the card by adding a few embellishments and stamping the sentiments on the inside.

  1. Beautiful card! The inside of the card is as wonderful as the outside.

  2. Lovely card. I find sympathy cards are hard to make. This is one that has a wonderful message and is really beautiful.

  3. Very pretty. I love th exit-put message backed with the cardstock.
