Artfully Sent Card

Oh My Goodness! - how easy and FUN is cardmaking with Close To My Heart's new Artfully Sent Cricut Collection - in 3 simple steps - cut, paste and embellish... I created a card in no time at all.

I started with this little collection of cardstock pieces and a small rectangle of gold coloured paper, cut from the Brown & Tan Glitter Paper Pack.

I prepared the flower shapes first, by sponging with Glacier Ink... rolling them with the Quilling Tool and adhering together with Liquid Glass. Next I scored the leaf shapes with the Bone Folder. This all took about 5 minutes and was the most time consuming part of making the card LOL!

The Thank You sentiment is from one of the stamp sets that comes with the Artfully Sent Cricut Collection and to keep with the gold tones I stamped it in Desert Sand Ink. I love how interactive you can make the cards with this Cricut Collection... it makes them just that little more special. This birdcage shaped card stands up beautifully on it's rounded legs and when you open it up you get a full view of the sweet gilded bird.

There are 6 different functions on the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge and each has a unique interactive feature - you can choose from:
  • Pop-up cards
  • Icon cards
  • Scene cards
  • Sentiment cards
  • Sleeve cards
  • Pocket cards
Together these functions include 700 images that co-ordinate to create 400 complete projects. However, add your own creative flair and the possibilities are endless. To add this cardmaking "must-have" to your craft room simply click here to place your order in my Online Shop....and if you are needing more inspiration be sure to pop back during the week when I will share some more of my Artfully Sent creations.

I made a card almost just like this without ever seeing yours! Yours is so elegant, I wish I had used glitter paper like you!
