We sure love our CEO and founder, Jeanette Lynton! As a pioneer in the stamping and papercrafting industry, she has put so much time and heart into helping others discover their creativity and preserve their memories. She truly is one-of-a-kind.
As many of you know, Jeanette’s birthday is in March. This year, we’d like your help in giving her a birthday surprise to remember! Handmade cards are a thoughtful way to show someone just how much they mean to you, so let’s show Jeanette some love with beautiful uniquely crafted cards! Here’s what to do:
1. Create a birthday card for Jeanette and snap a photo of it
2. Post it to Facebook and Instagram using the hashtags #closetomyheart and #happybirthdayjeanette
3. Tag us on Facebook (@closetomyheart) and on Instagram (@ctmhoffical). Please feel free to leave a message for Jeanette with the picture, if you’d like!
We will randomly select five people who have posted a card and give them a Let’s Eat Cake Stamp + Thin Cuts (shown below), as a prize for helping us out and celebrating with us! (Winners will be notified directly in the first week of April.)
At the end of the month, we’ll show Jeanette all the cards you’ve made by searching these tags and hashtags on social media. Beautiful artwork made by people she cares about so dearly will be sure to touch her heart!
We’ve gathered a few cards made with some of our current favorite stamps and dies for inspiration!
This interactive card was made using the Another Candle Stamp + Thin Cuts paired with the Pull Tab Thin Cuts. The pull tab element adds to the already fun experience of receiving a card and they are easier to put together than you might think! (See Creating Interactive Pull Tab Cards the Easy Way! For more details on how to make one of these cards.)
Trade the cake for a present by pairing the pull tab with the You Deserve It All Stamp + Thin Cuts!
Then there’s these two sweet characters with their birthday celebration from the Let’s Eat Cake Stamp + Thin Cuts. (How cute are the bear and llama!) What’s especially fun about this stamp set is that the cake comes in separate pieces, so you can decide just how tall to make it! The full height of the cake is just the right size for a slimline card, while shorter cakes fit perfectly on a standard card.
Make sure to post your handmade cards by March 31, as outlined above! Thank you in advance for helping us celebrate the extraordinary life of one of the best people we know!
