Drum roll please........Are you ready for my creation??

I have been wanting to make this mini magazine holder, well in this case a card holder for many months. I cut the note card holder using the Artiste cricut cartridge. I used black & gray card stock and decorated with B&T paper from the For Always paper pack. I also embellished with fabric flowers using For Always Textiles.
I made a total of six cards to go with this holder. I had fun using the trendy rays technique. I also used the Monogram stamp with the first initial of my name as well as Perfect Fit Frames Flair stamp set. I cut the stamp shapes out using the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge. 
I used the True Thank You ~ Oklahoma Tornado Relief Campaign stamp for this next card. This stamp set is available for $2.95. 100% of proceeds will go to the Red Cross to aid in relief for those impacted. Get your stamp set today!! I also used Slate Satin Polka Dot Ribbon

This card ended up being my favorite. The design concept comes from Make it From Your Heart Volume 1. I added some fun touches with the "Sweet as Honey" sentiment from the Honeycomb Flair stamp set as well as cut out the flower from the Art Philosophy cricut cart. The flower was cut starting at 2 inches and descending until 1 1/4 inches was reached. I also did free hand stitches along the top and bottom of the card with my CTMH Metallic marker.  
Your next stop on this hop is Kisa ~ Hanging In The Woman Cave.
Now here’s the entire blog hop list! Enjoy
