Here's the card I made for Erica's Room Grandparent's Day Blog Hop. I really like the subtle colors in my card.  The bottom layer paper is CTMH  X7155B Avonlea. I also did a large circle punch and used the opposite side of it for under the hearts. My CTMH consultant Judy Ashmore gave me this paper. (Thanks Judy!!)  I then decided to add three hearts on top of the circle. Each heart is for each of my three daughters. I used two heart punches and had the large heart from Joann's. I did punch an extra heart of the lacey one and then sponged it with Tim Holtz Distress Faded Jeans to make the heart pattern on the other heart. I like the way it turned out. For the large heart I added some Chocolate Chip Stampin Up Ink. I also used the same Stampin Up ink for the ribbon. I made the ribbon from the Cricut Artiste cartridge. I followed the measurements that are on the stamps. I didn't have a sentiment for Grandparents, so I just did the sentiment on my computer and printed it, then punched it out. The canvas tag is from Maya Rd. I really love that little tag it's so darling. I stamped the sentiment on top from My Craft Spot Tiny Tags 2. I did add 3D foam squares in the ribbon and under the hearts to add dimension. To finish it I then added some Recollections faux pearls & a rhinestone sticker. I'm sure my parents will love this card from my girls.

  31. Hi Tara! Very sweet card. I like that there is symbolism (e.g., a heart for each of your daughters) in the card. Such customization is what makes cardmaking much more special than simply buying the first Hallmark card off a rack, don't you think?

    Fondly,
