How to assemble the From the Heart cards by Close To My Heart #ctmh #closetomyheart #card #interactive #sliding #cardmaking #stamping
September is National Stamping Month, and we’ve designed an incredible card kit with elegant, layered stamping to celebrate!
It’s called the From the Heart card kit, and if you love stamping, you’ll love all the ways you can play with the interchangeable stamp designs to achieve a variety of looks for your cards.
If the thought of creating cards like these feels a bit daunting, don’t worry! The kit comes with helpful instructions to walk you through the assembly—just take a look!

Here are the pieces you get in your kit. You get enough to create 12 cards, plus the beautiful From the Heart stamp set and 12 envelopes. Once you punch out these pieces, follow the instructions below to create your cards.

Step 1

How to assemble the From the Heart cards by Close To My Heart #ctmh #closetomyheart #card #interactive #sliding #cardmaking #stamping
All the folds come pre-scored, so all you have to do is fold along the score lines. Starting with your card base (A), turn the gold foil side down and sharply fold the two outside flaps inward. Add adhesive to the top of these flaps.

Step 2

How to assemble the From the Heart cards by Close To My Heart #ctmh #closetomyheart #card #interactive #sliding #cardmaking #stamping
Fold your card base in half along the score line, attaching the front of the card base to the top of the flaps. This will form a pocket.

Step 3

Starting with the detached end of the large flap, make sharp folds along the score lines, accordion style, as shown.

Step 4

Add adhesive to the bottom of first fold (the white side).

Step 5

How to assemble the From the Heart cards by Close To My Heart #ctmh #closetomyheart #card #interactive #sliding #cardmaking #stamping
Insert the pull insert (B) into the pocket in your card base (A), keeping B centered. Attach that first fold from step 5 to the edge of the pull insert, keeping the edges flush. Now when you pull on the insert piece in and out, the large flap should pop up and down!

Step 6

How to assemble the From the Heart cards by Close To My Heart #ctmh #closetomyheart #card #interactive #sliding #cardmaking #stamping
Slide your card closed and then add adhesive to top of first fold (over gold foil).

Step 7

How to assemble the From the Heart cards by Close To My Heart #ctmh #closetomyheart #card #interactive #sliding #cardmaking #stamping
Attach supporting piece (D) to the top of first fold. This supporting piece is a little bit larger than the area where you added the adhesive, so keep the top edge flush with the crease and center it on the flap. When it’s in place, the edges of the supporting piece should overlap the gold foil around the edges of your card.

Step 8

How to assemble the From the Heart cards by Close To My Heart #ctmh #closetomyheart #card #interactive #sliding #cardmaking #stamping
Stamp your choice of sentiment and flowers onto your card front (C). When stamping the layers of your flowers, add extra depth by using different colors for each layer.

Step 9

How to assemble the From the Heart cards by Close To My Heart #ctmh #closetomyheart #card #interactive #sliding #cardmaking #stamping
Stamp leaves and twigs in between flowers. Again, add depth by stamping all of the layers in different colors. This stamp set allows you to get incredible detail in your stamp images for a beautiful finished card.

Step 10

How to assemble the From the Heart cards by Close To My Heart #ctmh #closetomyheart #card #interactive #sliding #cardmaking #stamping
Set aside your card front and go back to the base for a moment. Slide your card open, and then stamp your choice of inside sentiment onto the card base. The From the Heart stamp set includes four large sentiments designed especially to fit this space.

Step 11

How to assemble the From the Heart cards by Close To My Heart #ctmh #closetomyheart #card #interactive #sliding #cardmaking #stamping
Once your stamping is dry, slide the card closed and add adhesive to second fold of large flap. This is the section right next to the supporting strip (D) that you attached, and it is where you will attach your card front.

Step 12

How to assemble the From the Heart cards by Close To My Heart #ctmh #closetomyheart #card #interactive #sliding #cardmaking #stamping
Attach your card front (C) to the second fold, lining up the edges with the supporting strip (D).

Blog Hops with Heart - End of Summer...

Welcome to the Blog Hops with Heart Blog Hop...I'm technically the first stop but this is a round-robin so if you've come from Becca's Blog, you're in the right place!

It's the end of SUMMER which means last-minute vacations!

We went to an indoor park and enjoyed ourselves...here's a look at a layout done with Jack (only available 'till the end of the month)...


I used the Artbooking Cricut Collection to cut my title...then crossed out the "out" and put "in" since it was an indoor water park.

The cute little bear at the bottom left is from the JACK - CARDMAKING kit...and is so versatile!

Here are the pictures from our trip...now to decide which ones to use on this layout and most of them will need major editing since I used my cell phone!








Your next stop is Stephanie...head on over and give her some LOVE!
