H2H Challenges: Cardstock

This week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge is to use Close To My Heart's fabulous cardstock- only- on your creation. You can stamp it, emboss it, distress it, tear it, wrinkle it, or anything else that you can think of, but you can't use any patterned paper! (I am recycling a card that I made in the recent past, so if it looks familiar, you're not hallucinating.)

I began with a 4"x6" White Daisy card base. (You can get three cards out of a 12"x12" sheet of cardstock. Cha-ching!) Using a Smoothie cardstock layer, I stamped/heat embossed the images from the Treasure Life stamp set with white embossing powder. I then stamped a sentimet from the same stamp set on White Daisy with Smoothie ink and inked the edges in black to match the black stripe of cardstock across the right side of the card. An adorable Just Blooms butterfly finishes off this cardstock-only card nicely!

Don't forget to stamp the inside of your card too. That little touch is easy to do and adds so much to your cards.

Now, won't you challenge yourself to use cardstock ONLY on your next creation? Link it up to the H2H Challenges blog, and you could be one of this month's featured artists or prize winner! Hope you'll join us! Be sure to visit the blog to check out what the Design Team, guest designer, and sponsors have to share with you.


  1. This was a very easy card to make, and it is beautiful!

  2. Beautiful card - especially love the butterfly!

  3. Such a lovely card! I think this stamp set has to be one of my all time favorites. I'll have to try to recreate this card one of these days. Thank you for the inspiration.

  4. Very nice. The flowers look great white embossed on the Smoothie.

  5. Beautiful card. Clean and simple, but elegant. This is one of my favourite stamp sets. Mine has been well used!
