"HI" Card


Today's card is a bright and cheery card using Close To My Hearts new paper packet, "Confetti Wishes".  I won't lie, when I first saw it, I loved it immediately, but I had no idea what to do with it. Then, inspiration hit!  

I used Close To My Hearts Canary paper and one of the Cricut cartridges named Paper Lace to make the swirly pattern of this card.  I sized it to a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2.  I then cut out the background using one of the background and texture papers from the "Confetti Wishes" paper packet.  I used my ATG to attach them both to the Canary card base.

I then used my handy-dandy Cricut Expression 2 to cut two circles.  One in Close to My Hearts Pacifica paper and the other in White Daisy.

I ran the Pacifica circle thru the Cuttlebug for a little texture, and then used one of my all time favorite CTMH stamps on the Daisy White circle. The "HI" stamp was stamped in Archival Black and then I used my new ShinHan alcohol based markers to color it, 

It was quick, easy and fun!
