March Technique Blog Hop: Creative with Cardstock

With the amazing Close To My Heart Cardstock Carnival Celebration, this month's technique blog hop is featuring are beautiful cardstock.  (If you're already hopping, then you've probably arrived from Lauren's blog.  From here, you'll visit Wendy's blog next.)

I had fun with the (recently retired) Kaleidoscope embossing folder and my circle Thin Cut die cuts to make two 5"x7" cards.  I used the Cake Day color palette as my inspiration: Wild Berry, Lemonade, Glacier, and Green Apple.  I used my For All Occasions stamp set for the sentiment and accented with black bursts.

For my second card, I fussy cut elements from each colored cardstock panel and adhered to my White Daisy base.  After I started outlining some of the circles with a black marker, I'm not sure it was such a great idea, but here we are anyway. LOL  I embellished the card with black enamel dots.

Be sure to take advantage of CTMH's cool Cardstock Carnival special offer this month!  Please leave a comment before you hop on to Wendy's blog next!
