Welcome to our Simply Inspired Close To My Heart Blog Hop.  This month we are featuring the Cloud Nine Card Making Kit,  If you are coming here from Katy Taylor's blog, you are in the right place.  The blog hop is a great big circle, so if you get lost, you can find a complete list of participants here. It is super easy to hop along with us; simply click on the link at the end of each blog post and move to the next one.  Here we go!

The Cloud Nine card kit includes supplies and instructions to make ten cards.  I used the left-over papers and made a set of four 3"x3" cards and a gift envelope that is made out of a 4"x6" Flip Flap.  There is plenty of  Gold Polka-Dot Washi Tape and Teal Shimmer Trim to embellish to your hearts content!  You can use the CTMH Scallop Border Punch on the Teal Shimmer Trim to make a fancy border for your projects.

This photo shows you how to cut your four card bases from your 
left-over paper from the Cloud Nine Card Kit.

This photo shows how to make the gift envelope.  
Hint:  I use these Flip Flaps to protect my 4"x6" recipe cards too!

Supplies used:
CC1026 Cloud Nine Card Kit
Z1851 Scallop Border Punch
Z1805 Hook & Loop Dots
Z4114 4"x6" Flip Flap Protectors
