CTMH Diagonal Stripe Slimline

Lynda Hodges, another Close To My Heart consultant, shared the most vivid and colorful slimline cards. Her cards were so fun that I couldn’t wait to try out the idea myself. For my version I first sponged on Distress Oxide inks on to some watercolor paper. I only have 3 colors but great news…CTMH has now all the colors in stock again…time for me to go shopping! Anyways, I decided it needed a little more color variety so I grabbed my CTMH watercolor paints and added some more color. I am really pleased how well the two products mixed together.

During my Monday Motivation video I shared how I cut my Diagonal Stripe slimline thin cut die despite not having long cutting plates. With a little washi tape and some careful cutting, it works! To finish this card I used CTMH’s Wishing You Everything stamp and thin cut die set. I used my Distress Oxides, the watercolor paints AND some Tombow markers and a waterbrush to add color. The background paper is retired, sorry! But did you know that CTMH carries Slimline Cards and Envelopes? They come 20 to a pack.

Don’t forget that the February Promotions are ending this weekend! I heard good news that Close To My Heart will roll most of the catalog items into their Online Only section. Phew! Just remember that items here are “while supplies last”.
