Simply Inspired – Artfully Sent


simply inspiredIt’s here! It’s here! Calling all card makers and creative persons! Get ready for Fabulous!!

Welcome to another Simply Inspired Blog Hop!! If you’re hopping here from Ms. Karen P. then you are on the right path. If you get lost or you want to start over you can always start again at the very beginning with Ms. Dana K. 

This month I made a simply sweet but super cute card using the newest Cricut Cartridge from Close To My Heart. Artfully Sent! (Z3017)  Every one of the Close To My Heart cartridges are amazing but this one is super cool because it was designed for card makers! I have been having a blast with it because there are so many choices!! Need a quick card? No problem! Need a die cut design for a layout?? No problem! Need a cute gifty gift? No problem! There are over 400 “projects” on this cartridge!


For this 5×7 card I cut two cards out using the “sleeve” > shift> letter 7 key in White Daisy card stock. Then I cut the back off of one and put the front with the cut outs into an embossing folder. The big polka – dots (Z1924) was just right! I used the colorful designs from the Paper FUNdamentals -Whimsy to fill in the letters. (TIP! I used the back of the card I cut apart to “sandwich” the scraps of colored paper. That way the inside of the card looks pretty too!)

I added a few small flowers in the center of the letters. I cut those from the “pocket card” > letter U key. Sponged a little color – added a sequin and a sparkle! Darling! I hope you like!!

Now HOP on over to Ms. Dana K. Because everything she makes is awesome!
