Fresh Air CTMH Australasian Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our June Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop.

If you have arrived here from Creating with Kara Davies then you are in the right place.

If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

Today I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s June Featured Collection, Fresh Air.

I love the dark green of the patterned paper paired with the woodgrain paper, which is from the coordinating PML cards included in the Paper Packet. It was begging to be used with one of my favourite retired stamp sets.

The first card was made by sponging a rectangle with new England Ivy ink, then stamping the tree and sentiment. I added some burlap ribbon for visual interest and to make the rectangle anchored to the card.

This second card uses the same colours, but a different tree and sentiment. I also used the green burlap ribbon this time to draw attention to the tree.

These two cards will be very versatile to have in my stash, and I can see myself using this paper for a variety of masculine cards.

This Workshop Your Way collection can be yours for just $51.  Individual components can be ordered from your CTMH consultant.

I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Doreen Watkins.
