Artfully Sent Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring Artfully Sent, Close to My Heart's latest Cricut cartridge!  If you have come here from Regina Kettering's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog:

This month we have forty six Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

This first card uses Pathfinding paper (X7186B), Joyful Birthday stamp set (B1419) and Bronze shimmer trim (Z1849).  The card is on page 40 of Artfully Sent.  As you can see from the front, you are able to design a 'normal' card front.  I used 'wishes' pattern 'Gallery' page 119 (9041).  The really COOL part is when you OPEN IT!

And here it is OPENED!  It's a fun pop up card!  In the book, it's supposed to be a Father's Day card, but of course we can 'tweak' it for Dad's birthday :)

 You really can see the dimension when you look at this picture.

Couldn't leave out Mom...this card was even easier!  Brushed is the paper pack (X7190B), also used are Silver (Z1799) and Pink (z1986) shimmer trim.  There is a little stamping on this one using D1616 'Have a Happy Day'.  This is a 'swing' card found on page 25.  I DID cut the 'Happy Birthday' twice, one Olive, and one Pixie...I made several of these cards :)

Please feel free to visit my website to order any of these AWESOME products!  Purchase Artfully Sent (Z3017) from me this month and I will send you Pathfinding and Brushed paper packs FREE!  Also, if you live local (Michigan), when you buy any cricut cartridge at full price, you are welcome to attend one of my Cricut Classes for FREE!
