July SOTM – Strong Roots Blog Hop

Welcome to the July Stamp of the Month blog hop!!

If you are coming here from WENDY KESSLER’S Blog, then you are in the right spot ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating Makers on Melinda’s blog HERE.  This month we have around 18 Makers participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

I saw a cute card that was called a bridge card and thought it would be fun for this stamp set.

For this card I used a piece of Sage Cardstock that is 4 1/4″ x 8″. I then scored each end at 1 1/4″ and again at 2 1/2″. I added two panels cut from the Seasonal Mix-in. to the front. I cut the square with the Stitched Square Thin Cuts. I stamped the house on the stitched square and colored it with my markers.

Here is what it looks like when you start to open the card.

Here is the card open. I cut the heart with my Cricut. I inked the edge of the heart with toffee ink and stamped the keys in toffee. I did fussy cut them. I added a couple of the Gold Glitter gems for a bit of bling.
