May is National Scrapbooking Month and Close To My Heart has a special paper pack, Live Beautifully, to help us celebrate. You can see all the papers, a coordinating stamp set, and a Cut Above Layout Kit that makes five double page layouts. The flowers remind me of old English roses, my favorites!
When I looked at the Atlantic Hearts sketch today I suddenly saw this card in the making. I hadn't yet used the back side of the pink roses, the white roses on light green. When I saw the roses were lined up and could be cut in a strip, I thought it would be the perfect element for the horizontal strip across the middle. I also thought the gold dotted overlay would work well to dress up the green ombre paper. Here's the result:
gold dot overlay, gold glitter gems, gold embossed sentiment, and white and gold fiber. The sentiment is part of the Sending Smiles (Cricut Bundle) stamp set. The back of the green ombre paper is a pink ombre which I used for the center panel mounted on the black dotted mat, all from the Live Beautifully paper pack.
I fussy cut and popped up the pink roses, then I decided to cut out matching rose clusters to pop up over the ones on the green background. For more card ideas for Live Beautifully, you can see the one I posted last week here or follow the link of the label at the bottom of the post.
Thank you for visiting!
