Card Cafe Thursday + Nicole Nowosad + a process video!

Good morning everyone!  Nicole back today for another installment in our Designed with Nicole series! Today, I wanted to share how to made some quick and beautiful cards using the great From The Heart pop-up card kit from our friends at Close To My Heart.

Cards full

Supplies: Close to My Heart – From the Heart card kit; Ink – Close to My Heart, Kelly Purkey, Staz On; Watercolor paper, Watercolor paint – Prima Marketing

Sometimes, getting started is half the battle when creating – am I right? I was lucky enough to have this card kit to work with and let me tell you, not only is is beautiful, but you can really make the cards your own with what is included. All the tough work narrowing down supplies makes quick work on a set of cards like these!

Thank you card cl1

If you need to make several cards for a certain occasion, a card kit like this makes the creation process SO much easier, and yet you can still make those projects all your own too.  There are several pre-cut pieces for you to use in the kit and a GORGEOUS set of layering stamps that you can use to create your own designs on your cards.

So, sit back – grab a cup of something good to drink and watch how easy (and fun!) it is to make a set of cards using this card kit from Close to My Heart!


Thanks so much for popping by with me today! I hope you are inspired to grab a card kit and de-stress by making some pretty and fun cards!

    The only thing I would have to say about this video was it was very frustrating when she was stamping and I couldn’t see what she was doing while she was stamping it was off the camera. I’m not a frequent stamper and so I don’t know what I’m doing so watching this fast process of making this card and stamping and having half of it being done off-camera was pretty frustrating for me. Only because I don’t know what I’m doing when I’m stamping.
