CardMaker and Grafix Arts Blog Hop

Good morning! This morning I am participating in another fun blog hop - this time with the CardMaker Blog Design Team and Grafix Arts! Each of the Cardmaker DT members got a package of goodies from Grafix Arts to play with - I used a couple of those items to make my card below:

The main thing used was the fun package of Shrink Film! I hadn't had a chance to use that before, and it was so fun! Kind of felt a little like magic I have to tell you! This embellishment on the front of my card is the beautiful Neat and Tangled Heart Wreath stamp - that is usually much larger! I stamped it with Stazon Ink on the Shrink Film, which basically feels like a piece of acetate. Then I zapped it with my heat gun to shrink it down - worked just as good as putting it in the oven, and much quicker than taking time to heat it up! Look at the photo below to see how THICK it ended up! Such a fun embellishment!

I also used some of the vellum from Grafix Arts on my card - see the torn edge of it ticked under the strip of pattern paper on the front of my card? My pattern paper is from a new Crate Paper pad - I'm a sucker for pretty floral paper, and all the better when I can leave more if it showing like this!

I attached my Shrink Film embellishment with a couple tiny dots of Ranger adhesive to a small die cut circle, added some coordinating enamel dots, and a bit of jute twine to finish off my card.

Here is the entire blog hop line-up so you can follow along and see all the fun inspiration!
