A simple Avonlea card

Hi everyone--I am back home after a fun filled weekend in Canton OH for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement--I am so luck to get to go every year.  Part of my real job is making the gold jackets for the enshrines each year.  This years class was so nice and they all looked like a million bucks! I will share some photos on Friday.
Today I have another card for you using the new Avonlea paper collection from Close to My Heart!
So here I used one of the stamps to create the background on the card--I impressed myself on how much it looks like printed paper!.  I used a strip of the purple in the kit and a strip of pattern paper to create the 'ribbon' down the card.  The flourish cut is from the new Cricut Artiste Cartridge from CTMH--a must have for any cricut lover.  I simply stamped the sentiment and added two of the new blings that come in the card kit I posted last week.

I will have another card for you on Wednesday--make sure to check out the idea book on line and let me know what you think.

If you have been thinking about the Artiste cartridge but you are worried about the budget I have a plan to share with you on Friday that is going to get you that cartridge--and keep you in your budget.
Make it a great one


  1. Fabulous card!! And yes the background looks like paper!! Great job!! Hugsxx

  2. Great card! You're right...I thought the background was a pre-printed paper.

  3. Great job! I never would have known about the background! Very nice frame for the sentiment! I can't wait to hear what you have to share on Friday!!!
