Close to my Heart :Picture My Life™ Beautiful You, Overlay Black, & Overlay Gold & Silver Cards

I love CTMH's Picture My Life Cards but I use them to make cards and other paper crafts.  Here I made an 8" X12" folding screen using white daisy card stock, scored every 3 inches and I used a random shaped square punch to make the legs at the bottom and another punch to add a little design at the top.  Then taking the 6"x4" Picture My Life cards I cut them each in half and rounded the cut corners and used them as the back drop for each panel.  I then took several of the black and gold clear overlay cards that are 3"x4" and using pop up tape I adhered them on two sections, I then hid the pop up tape with gold sequins and used a few stamped images in black and pomegranate ink to add a little extra dimension.  this is an ideal project to add your favorite 2.5' x2.5 or even 3"x3" photos to.  It also makes a great card and will fit into a standard large envelop (4.25X 9.5).

Close to my Heart: Charlotte Paper Packet

 Using a simple 8.25 X8.25 sheet of card stock, I created an little different picture card. In this project I used Peacock card stock, poppy card stock Charlotte paper, pear card stock and blush card stock.  These are perfect to send Mom a mothers day card with a picture in it.  I made these for Valentines day for a friend who took a picture of her daughter holding up a giant heart that said I love you.  She then put the picture in the card and mailed them off to her family.  They were a huge hit.  so I though I would make some for Mothers day.  i will make one for my Mom and Grandmother with pictures of the Grand dogs. To hold the folds together you can use CTMH's Velcro closures or simple tie a ribbon around it (much like a stack of saved letters).
