Three Amigos April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos CTMH Mini-Blog Hop. We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. Each month we feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.

This month we are featuring the Ivy Lane papers.  Back in February, I made a pop-up box card for my daughter for Valentine's Day.  She loved it!  With Mother's Day just around the corner, I decided to make a similar card using the Ivy Lane papers.  Once I choose the perfect sentiment, I'll add it and maybe a few sequins here and there.





I discovered that our retired Garnet Cardstock coordinated with Ivy Lane beautifully and used it for the base and a few of the hearts.  I cut the hearts in various sizes using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, inked all of the edges, and layered them into the box.


After I assembled the card, I thought it needed a little more sparkle.  I covered three chipboard hearts with glitter paper from the Brown & Tan collection.  Three of the hearts are attached with strips of transparency overlays to give them a little movement.



This is what the card looks like when it's folded.  I was able to fit it into a 6x6 envelope. The base of the card is decorated with gold shimmer trimand pieces of the zip-strip from the top of the patterned paper.

Thanks for hopping by!  Now, hop on over to Lisa's Blog to see what she created for you this month.
