CTMH Aurora You’re the Best Card

With each release of a new catalog, Close to My Heart hosts a Product Launch for consultants with artwork we can create using new products!!  The May/June 2020 Catalog Launch featured our Aurora Collection!  We created 3 layouts and 6 cards in the product launch!  

The cards were designed with our Aurora Scrapbooking Stamp + Thin Cuts set; however, I decided to tweak mine and use the May Stamp of the Month: Time to Celebrate.  My launch projects were created using the Aurora Paper Packet + Sticker Sheet, Aurora Coordinating Cardstock, Aurora Acrylic Shapes (X7256E), and the May Stamp of the Month: Time to Celebrate.


This is the 5th card from our seasonal launch.



I couldn’t decide on a sentiment…so stamped several of them in generation stamping…then popped the “You’re the best” sentiment by backing it in Peacock Cardstock.

This month’s Stamp of the Month: Time to Celebrate (S2005) is a MUST HAVE for your stamp collection!!  Order Today before it’s gone!



Embrace the wonders of the great outdoors and discover the adventures that await when you craft with the Aurora paper collection.  Pair the products in this suite with cardstock, inks and accessories in coordinating colors for truly boundless creative possibilities.  The Aurora Collection features these colors:  Eggplant, Sapphire, Peacock, Evergreen, Sage, Linen and Charcoal.  You can choose between 2 paper pack options, one WITH a 12x12 sticker sheet and one WITHOUT.  Plus the collection includes Acrylic Shapes (X7256E), pocket scrapbook cards (X7256D) AND an exclusive Cricut Collection! Not to mention the scrapbooking and cardmaking workshops!
