Rest - Relax - Repeat

Welcome to our Artfully Sent Blog Hop, brought to you by the same ladies who participate in the monthly Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop.  The newest Cricut cartridge exclusive to Close To My Heart is named Artfully Sent, and it includes options for creating a wide variety of different cards.     

If you arrived here from Melinda's If You Bling It ...  blog, you are hopping through our circle of Close To My Heart consultants sharing their projects using the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge. 

This rest-relax-repeat card is one of the "scene" cards available on the Artfully Sent cartridge.  When you select this card, there are two pieces to cut.  The complete card is cut from a piece of White Daisy cardstock.  You then fold this in half to form your card.  Instead of leaving the flower white, I used some of the ShinHan markers to add a bit of color to just that portion.  The other piece of the card was cut from Glacier cardstock, and it also includes some cut-out raindrops.  So that when it is layered onto the front of the card, there is some extra dimension.  

Stamps from the Your Own Kind of Wonderful set were used to decorate the inside of the card.  Using the Artfully Sent cartridge, the majority of the "work" for the card is cut for you using your Cricut machine.  By just adding a few stamped images, and adhering the two pieces together, you can create a unique card very quickly.

    1. Thanks Jacquelin. I thought the raindrops needed a little something.

    1. Thanks, Cat. It needed a little bit of something extra, and the Sparkles did it.

    1. No CCR. It is available on the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge, available exclusively through CTMH. It is cut at 7" so the completed card is 5x7.
