Cross Canada Blog Hop - August

Welcome to the Canadian hop featuring artwork created from Close To My Heart products found in the new 2017-2018 Annual Inspirations catalogue. To purchase any of the items seen in this blog hop, contact your local consultant to place an order.

If you came from Colleen's blog then you are in the right place! 

I decided to showcase one of the newest French stamps and both of the Golden Moments Cut Above kits which are perfect if you need a card or gift tag for an upcoming special occasion. 

These kits come with everything you need to add that special touch - just choose your own adhesive and ink. Stamp an appropriate sentiment for the occasion and voilà you're ready to go!

Here is a quick card for a baby shower, wedding shower, wedding, anniversary, or graduation.  As you can see, you can place the card horizontally or vertically. I used 3 D foam tape to pop up the banner.

The Golden Moments Cut Above Card kit includes materials to make 10 cards, including the pink and gold foil card bases, envelopes, and die-cuts with gold foil edge.

Here is a gift tag. The gold foil background is so elegant.

The Golden Moments Cut Above Tag kit includes materials to make 10 gift tags, including tags, die-cuts and white twine.

For the cards and the tag I used the French stamp Avec Amour C1700. It has 14 sentiments perfect for every occasion. Everyone needs to get this stamp set, it is so versatile.
