Felicity Card

A while back Close to My Heart had the beautiful Felicity kit as the monthly special. Once again, I did not get samples made in time to promote the special, but I did finally manage to make something with it over Spring Break. This kit is BEAUTIFUL, fun, and easy to work with. The card design is from the full-color guide that comes with the kit. I do have a couple of extra kits, so contact me if you are interested in purchasing one!


This card uses papers & stamps from the Felicity kit, bamboo & desert sand cardstock, colonial white brads & bitty brads, colonial white grosgrain ribbon, and a bamboo ribbon slide. The sentiment stamp is from Paper Trey Ink.

The colors are twilight, sorbet, olive, bamboo, desert sand & colonial white.

Card dimensions: 5” x 7”
