Damask Divas February Blog Hop

Welcome to the Damask Divas February Blog Hop featuring the For Always paper pack by Close to my Heart.  Thanks so much for visiting! If you got here from Roberta’s site, then you are in the right place.  If you lose your spot or want to start at the beginning go back to the Damask Divas home page.

I love the black and white patterned papers in this new pack for Spring/Summer 2013.  It is very elegant and will lend itself to many different projects.  I covered the chipboard card box from CTMH with the For Always papers and silver shimmer trim.  The paper flowers were made using the Artiste Cricut Cartridge exclusive to CTMH.  The larger flower was cut flat in 3 sizes then I stamped a pattern with black ink then layered with pop dots and put a small black flower in the center.  I used the CTMH Chalkboard pen to write Cards on the front (remember – the chalk pen is a marker and is not erasable like chalk; it just looks like chalk in a very nice way).  I thought the silver shimmer tape added a nice sparkle.  I also added some glitter glue to the edge of the big flower.
