Baroque Borders: Blog Hop

Welcome to our August CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! Each month we will showcase the Stamp of the Month which can be purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant.  This month it can be yours as part of a REALLY GOOD DEAL...

We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects.

This month we will be showcasing the August Stamp of the Month "Baroque Borders" . This stamp can be used in so many different ways and we hope to inspire you with our creations!

Today's card is clean and simple.  For this project, I random stamped Ruby ink on White Daisy card stock.  I cut 3 hearts at 1.75 inches and then mounted them with foam tape on Ruby hearts cut at 2 inches.  The thanks sentiment comes from a CTMH stamp set called A Little Thanks.  I used bitty brads for a bit of detail at the corners.
 Here is a close up so you can see the depth.
Before I send you on your way, please take a moment to follow my blog or leave a comment.  Thank you!
