All About Frames Blog Hop

Welcome to our “All About Frames Blog Hop”
Brought to you by our Krazy Crafting Crew. We are an independent hop team that enjoys sharing out work with everyone and hope to inspire you with new ideas for you own creativity. We are a team who loves to do all different themes, such as cards, layouts, 3D projects and so much more. We do all the paper crafting from traditional to digital. Mostly traditional, every now and then there may be a little mixed media too!
If you arrived here from Christina you are in the right place.Now on to some more fun.
For today's hop project I have made a card for my Granddaughter, who should be here at anytime now. I am so very excited to meet her, that this card has a little story of how impatient her Grandmother is for her arrival. I know that this will sit in her scrapbook waiting for the day that I give it to her. Well enough of me and my major problem of waiting. LOL

My card today was made using the Close To My Heart exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. This month any of the 3 exclusive Cricut Cartridges (Art Philosophy, Artist, and Artbooking) can be yours free if you sign up to be a consultant with Close To My Heart. You can sign up by clicking here. There is no obligation to you to have parties. You can decide it isn't for you and the kit will be yours with no further obligations. You will receive $400 worth of product for only $99 and you can stay as a consultant to get the discount yourself or sell to your family and friends if you wish. I am only a phone call, text message, or email away (or if in the Sacramento, CA area a visit away) if you have any questions or need help.

All product are Close To My Heart unless stated otherwise.

The base of the card is Colonial White Card Stock cut @ 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Layer one is of Pear Card Stock cut @ 3 3/4" (pg 62 <Oval5>)
Used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder on the Frame to add texture
Layer two is of Cotton Candy cut @ 3 1/2" (pg 62 <Oval5>)
Used the D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug Embossing Folder on the Frame layer for texture/dimension
