CTMH January Special - Live Your Day

 Thank you for joining me on this blog hop featuring Close To My Heart's January Special - Live Your Day. A blog hop is just a circle with links on each post to continue to the next blog to see what they've created. If you're coming from Scrappin' Katy's Blog you're on the right track. I know you saw something fabulous while you were there!

I wanted to do something a little different with the Picture My Life cards instead of the usual "making a scrapbook layout". I'd seen where other people were using them for cards and I hadn't tried that yet. So, I picked out one of the 4x6 cards with a sentiment that I thought would make a great card. Since it was a little large for a standard size card, I thought it would work better on a 5x7. With a little cropping and rounding of the corners, I made it fit on the card without covering up the whole thing.

I put a black mat with rounded corners on it. Then, I embossed a 4x7 Thistle cardstock with the heart embossing folder and sanded it so the heart would stand out. I attached it to the front of the card that I had already cut down to 4" to give a little peek a boo look from the front. I found a leftover cricut cut from another project in Cotton Candy cardstock that had hearts with a scallopped border. It was originally a frame so I just cut the frame part off and attached to the back at the bottom of the PML card. I used a heart from the Penelope Complements up in the corner of the inside and finished it off with clear Sparkle.

I hope you like my card! Please feel free to leave a comment before you head on over to the next stop on the hop at the Heart and Soul Scrapper
