March SOTM Blog Hop- Potential

Hello, and welcome to this month’s SOTM Blog Hop.
 If you arrived here from Gina Brandstetter's Blog
then you are on the right track, just keep on hopping 
‘cause it’s one great big circle of awesome artwork using the March SOTM set Potential. 

This gorgeous set is going to be a new favorite I am sure. 
I just love the bold flourishes and can see myself using them on both cards and scrapbook pages. 
And I just LOVE the sentiments, there is so much love and encouragement in those seven words. 

As many of you may already know,
 I do my monthly SOTM projects 
based on a paper pack assignment
 from my consultants group. 
This month my assigned paper pack was Florentine,
 which I think compliments this set beautifully.

Here is the card I made 

The card is cut using one of the card shapes available on the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. 
The shaped window is perfectly centered and cut right out of the card, easy peasy! 
With the card closed you can only see the word Anything through the window.

But in this image I stood the card up a little more open 
so you can see the entire message stamped on the inside. 

For the front I used the back side of the paper that looks like a persian rug. I always have a hard time cutting those beautiful full page designs but I really loved this design on the back side. It is one of the reasons I usually buy two paper packs, I usually like BOTH sides of the paper!

I was working on these cards at Archivers when they were demoing a new product from We R Memory Keepers called Sew Ribbon (you can find out about it here).
 It is a fun new tool that you can use to punch slits anywhere on your paper and weave your ribbon through.
 It was so much fun and I loved the results so I just had to buy one.

 Here is a closer look at the ribbon weaving.
