Stronger Together Slider Card

Stronger Together Slider Card

Since it is the final few days to order Close To My Heart’s From the Heart Slider Card Kit, I thought I’d share another sample card I created with this kit.

Stronger Together Disaster Relief Stamp Set

This time I used the newly released Stronger Together Stamp Set that helps support disaster relief; all proceeds from this stamp set go directly to the Red Cross.

Open Stronger Together Slider Card

To tie the sentiments into the beautiful gold foil slider card bases, I decided to wet emboss both the outside sentiment and inside sentiment in gold, too.

I added in a splash of our Color of the Year–Bashful–but otherwise kept it all to the gold foil and white color palette.

I even used our Gold Shimmer Brush to add sparkle to the White Daisy Pennant Banner behind the heart.  So super quick and easy!

From the Heart Christmas Card

 

Santa From the Heart Slider Card

Today on Close To My Heart’s blog, they talked about how the National Stamping Month Special–From the Heart–is designed to be versatile and let you be the artist.  While the From the Heart Stamp Set is definitely a beautiful set–and one which you would use over and over again–these cards can make some pretty amazing holiday cards, too!

Open Santa Slider Card

Here is my spin on these beautiful From the Heart Slider Cards using the *NEW* Little Saint Nick Stamp Set along with the *NEW* Ho, Ho, Ho Stamp.  I absolutely love the Little Saint Nick image.  You may recall I used him in a Circle Accordion Card I shared a few weeks ago.  He’s so cute and easy to and color.  I used our ShinHan Markers in Barely Beige, Tender Pink and Carmine.

And of course, I couldn’t resist using our Clear Shimmer Brush on his hat trim for a little shine and sparkle!
