Cricut® Artfully Sent: The Basics

 Learn to use Close To My Heart’s Cricut Artfully Sent Cartridge.  Pop on over to my online shop & take a look at this & many other handy tools to make your crafting life easier.


I haven't had the chance to play with the new Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge yet as much as I want to but I did manage to make 2 cards after being inspired by another crafty consultant Patricia Manhire.  There are so many ideas on Pinterest & other crafty blogs & websites to get motivated. This card is found on page 47 of the booklet & cut at the recommended sizing.  I used Glacier cardstock for the base of the card, White Daisy Cardstock for the insert.  I used Santa Claus C1567, Always Grateful C1559 & Merry & Bright (retired) stamp sets.  I'm still trying to master the sponging effect but am getting there, I used Glacier, Indian Corn Blue & Pacifica & Pixie ink pads for the backgrounds, Ponderosa Pine for the trees & Chocolate for Santa & Sleigh. To get the illusion of mountains I got a white piece of cardstock & ripped it into shapes I wanted & used them as a mask for stamping.  I used glitter under the snowflake cutout but CTMH Glitter sheets would look beautiful as well for that bit a bling that's needed.

I have finished off the card with a sentiment on the front & some White Enamel Stars.

My take on the card that was featured in the tutorial for using the All Purpose Mat & mixing inks together.  The Deer & Rabbit can be found on page on page 12 & the background on page 5 of the booklet.  I cut off some of the tree trunks & changed the sentiment.  
Go to the post dated 6th November 2014 to see original card.
