Nothing but blue skies-- card made with New Close to My Heart paper and stamps

Hello, friends!

I have seen so many people make clear cards. They always impress me! I had to finally give it a try myself. Lucky for me Close To My Heart will now be selling acrylic cards. All you have to do is add paper and decorate. LOVE IT!


I used all Close To My Heart supplies on this card. The paper line is call 'Splendor' and the stamp set is new and called 'Over the Rainbow'. Everything will be available May 1st though Close To My Heart




Thanks so much for stopping by today!! You guys are awesome!

Have a wonderful Thursday!
