Artbooking Overlay Cards

Love the simplicity of the card sketch this week on the CAS(E) This Sketch blog.  When I saw it, I knew that I wanted to use an overlay from the Artbooking Cricut cartridge as the rectangle shape on the CTS#55 sketch.  Actually created two cards using this sketch, and it is fun to see how different they look from each other.  

For this Thanksgiving card, an overlay from the Artbooking Cricut cartridge was cut using Honey cardstock.  To add some more interest, Washi Tape with a wood grain is behind the overlay.  The sentiment is from Holiday Tags and was stamped using Chocolate pigment ink, then embossed with Clear Detail Embossing Powder.  This gives the image a bit of depth so that it really stands out on the Kraft cardstock.   As a finishing touch, some flowers from Garden Wooden Shapes were added with Mocha Opaques in the center of each.    

As my Cricut machine was cutting the overlay for the Thanskgiving card, I thought of cutting an overlay with Glitter Paper.  This black & white card has just a pop of color with an Artbooking overlay cut from a sheet of Green Glitter Paper.  Black cardstock is behind the overlay for contrast, and the sentiment is also from the Holiday Tags stamp set.  In order to complement the rounded edges of the overlay and embellishments, a Corner Rounder was used on all four corners of the card.
