New Wishes Card Making Book

Close to my Heart just released the latest in their “how-to” book series with a fabulous new book called Wishes. This book has tons of great card templates and ideas. In fact, it even comes with a CD with many of the card and envelope templates on it! How great it that? Click here to order your own copy of this priceless new book.

Below is a card that I made using one of the templates in the book. It didn’t take me very long to make it because the cutting guide and instructions were very simple. (Close to my Heart strives to make things faster, simpler, and easier and this book does just that! I LOVE it!) I used a new paper packet called Moon Doggie and a matching stamp set called Extreme Happiness. Isn’t this a fun card? It kind of makes me want to get off the computer and head down to the beach right now. LOL!
I also used some new 3-D Foam Tape that CTMH just released. I love the versatility of it because you can make it any size you want and it is the perfect thickness to give your projects just a pop of dimension without being too thick.
Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Extreme Happiness,
February Word Puzzle (dots), Sensational Seals
Paper: Moon Doggie
Inks: Cranberry, Indian Corn Blue, Garden Green, Bamboo, Desert Sand
Other: Foam Tape, Wishes How-To Book, Holiday Buttons, Colonial White Waxy Flax
, Micro-tip Scissors
