Ombre Challenge for Heart 2 Heart

Welcome back to another Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog post where we feature Close To My Heart products!  We would love to have you join us in entering the "Ombre" challenge combining several shades of colors.  I chose a very simple yet effective way of doing this (easily repeatable and great for mass card production).


I started with cutting up 1" x 3.75" strips of Buttercup, Creme Brulee, Goldrush, Sunset and Autumn Terracotta.  Next I placed them over a contrasting piece of Barn Red CS and then over a Cashmere card base.  The ovals were cut with the Artiste cartridge (page 36) at 1.25" and 1.5" to coordinate with the greeting from Casual Expressions stamp set.  Happy Birthday was stamped in Barn Red Ink.
Before I adhered the Barn Red piece to the card I wrapped some Sunset Bakers' Twine around and tied a bow.  How did I get the bow to lie flat?--a mini-glue dot!

Now it's your turn to share your papercrafted creations..  Please use a direct link to enter this challenge here.  You don't have to use 100%  Close To My Heart products but we would love it if you did!  (If you don't use any CTMH products your entry will be deleted).  Since this is our last challenge of the month, you have until August 3 to submit your entries for any of the July challenges.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
:) Marie
