CTMH Australasian Seasonal Expressions 1 Last Chance Blog Hop

CTMH Australasian Seasonal Expressions 1 Last Chance Blog Hop
Hello and welcome aboard our "Seasonal Expressions 1 Last Chance" Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. 

If you have arrived here from 
Shaunna Richards Passionate About Pages 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. 


With May just around the corner, and the launch of the new Seasonal Expressions, I wanted to let you know, there are 10 days remaining for you to shop for the beautiful products in the retiring Seasonal Expressions 1

The product I'd like to share is  - C1640 Friend in Me Stamp set [page 18]
Such a lovely stamp set with lovely quotes and beautiful flowers!
The flowers can be stamped onto a Scrapbooking layout as background stamping

or stamped onto white cardstock, coloured using our Watercolour Pencils or Paints and as you will see in my example, the flowers look stunning!
This card I created for a monthly Trading Card Group!
[Trading cards are generally 3.5" x 2.4"]
Love the quote "SISTERS for life, friends forever."

When creating the Trading Cards I begin by doing a couple of different designs until I'm happy with the end result. These are then shared with up to 10 fellow Trading Card peeps.
With the extra card, I mounted it onto a card with black and white base.
 
As the card measures 5.5" x 4.25" the black cardstock is cut 1/4" smaller. 
Black cut at 5.25" x 4"
White cut at 5" x 3.75"

When cutting the black, then white cardstock for the card base, I do a second set, to add to the inside of the card. 
Love how it reflects the front!

All products included in Seasonal Expressions 1 will retire at the end of April. Be sure to contact your CTMH consultant to place an order or visit their Online Shop.
