CTMH Grateful Heart

The new Grateful Heart stamp set in Close To My Heart’s new Holiday Expressions has a lot of cool individual pieces…in fact, I only used that 1 stamp set for this entire card! (Some of you folks really appreciate that, I know! wink wink) It’s totally different from my other card here using the same stamp set.

I was inspired by a beautiful wreath my upline, Lisa Stenz, made for CTMH’s convention. Look at the colors of this butterfly – it’s from the Grateful Hearts complements pack but I figured I could get pretty close with white embossing….

Here’s my attempt – not as crisp, but close!

And here is how easy it was to get the coloration for the butterfly!

I also repeatedly stamped the woodgrain to fill up the entire panel. I stamped in Espresso ink and then sponged over the image with Almond and more Espresso ink. The sentiment is stamped in the new Tangerine ink color and then I used Fern for the leaves and a little more Espresso for the dashed pattern. I love how this card turned out!
