"Anything Goes" Heart 2 Heart Challenge

Welcome to this week's Heart to Heart Challenge that allows you to create anything you want as long as you incorporate Close To My Heart products in your creation. This week's theme is called "Anything Goes"!

I am thankful I had an opportunity to create some fun greeting cards this weekend and decided on showcasing this one today. There is a card in the November/December Idea Book that uses strips (for a birthday card) and I decided to alter it slightly for a Christmas card. 

By cutting 1/2" x 4 1/4" strips, I generated the background as shown. Feeling that the card needed a bit more, I decided to stamp some of the small stars, in Glacier ink, and believe it was the perfect addition. 

The stamps came from this adorable and exclusive stamp set, only available through the end of November (while supplies last) as part of the "Holiday Cheer" Special. I couldn't resist adding a few Candle Apply Holly Jolly Dots for some ornaments on the tree. And last, but not least, the gold star was generated through the use of the Golden Rod Stickles.

I'm really please with how this card turned out and do plan on making more, especially since it takes little paper. Gotta love when that's the case! 

Join us for this (and other) Heart 2 Heart Challenges. You can find the details through the link and then be sure to connect with us for the respective challenge. I hope to see your artwork there! 

Have a blessed week!
