H2H - Inspiration Photo

This week at H2H we're using a photo as inspiration - specifically, this photo:

I decided to use the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to make a tag card.  I cut the card at 5.5".  I used Chocolate cardstock as the background and added a bit of Dreamin' paper that mimicked the leaves in the inspiration photo.  The baker's twine is new from CTMH and will be available in February!  I was very excited about that.

I embossed the card with clear embossing powder on the background and the sentiment - it's hard to photograph, but you can kind of tell in the next picture.  Both images came from one of the Art Philosophy stamp sets.

The base of the tag is decorated with Opaques and flourishes from the Limited Edition stamp set.  The last piece I added was the acrylic tag attached to the baker's twine.  I think it came from a Connections Club reward from awhile ago.  I added two coats of liquid glass on top and the snippet of paper underneath.  I loved all those clear shiny shapes in the inspiration photo and tried to add some of that shine to this card.

I love the clear embossing powder.  It adds such a nice texture and shine to stamping.  You have to see it in person to really get the full effect.  Are you inspired?  Please share your creations at Heart 2 Heart!  Don't forget, this is a CTMH challenge blog, so make sure you've used some CTMH products in your work!


  1. I love that your card is a tag shape and all the subtle shine is beautiful! Very pretty card.

  2. Yes, like Mary, I LOVE the shape of your card and the way it opens! It's just so perfect and super cute! :)
