Featured Paper Blog Hop- Basics Fundamentals

The core of Close To My Heart's paper is our cardstock and coordinating Fundamentals patterned paper.  These papers are available all year.  This month, our featured paper is the Basics Fundamentals.  I love, love, love the neutral colors and gorgeous patterns of this collection. (If you're already hopping then you've probably arrived from Kathleen's blog.  From here, you'll visit RaNae's blog next.)
For this Christmas card for a dear friend, I really wanted to focus on the reason for the season, which I felt called for simplicity  I used some of the brown papers of the Basics collection paired with the Prince of Peace stamp set.  After stamping the star sentiment in Nutmeg, I used my gold marker to trace over the star.  I used some burlap ribbon and gold glitter gems to highlight this sentiment.
The inside nativity scene was cut with the (retired) CTMH/Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge.  All I had to do was choose my papers and cut them at 7" according the Cricut guide, then assemble.  While you can't see it in this picture, I wrote my Christmas wishes in gold marker on the inside of the card (in front of the nativity scene).

Now that I have made this one, I am thinking about making another pop-up card that I can set on a table in my house.  Thank you for hopping through the Basics Fundamentals Featured Paper blog hop!  I wish you the very best this holiday season!  I would really appreciate a comment before you head off to visit RaNae's blog next.  Merry Christmas!


  1. OMG what a beautiful project! I just love how you did the inside of the card. Very creative way to display the creche scene.


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
