The Chunkier the Better

I won some amazing "Ivy Lane" Close to My Heart Goodies (CTMH) from Shalana a few weeks back and when they arrived, I knew the papers and dimensional embellies would be perfect for some pretty purple Spring cards! 

  I promised Shalana some pictures of my creations, so here you go.  I mixed and matched the papers with some textured cardstock I already had.  Ribbon with big bows are an easy way to add dimension and texture too.

Who knew purple and green could mix so well? The glitter gems add a little flair.

 I know some like flat cards, but sometimes I think the chunkier the embellishent, the better.  To   accent the ribbon, I added the CTMH fabric flower and a stick pin I made.  If you're worried the cards won't fit the envelope, you can always go one size larger :)

I can't wait to use the gorgeous stamps, maybe on some layouts...

Do you use CTMH?  What are some of your favorite products?

Thanks for stopping by!
