I am getting low on get well cards at Gift Hutt so I got down to work to make these lovely cards. I am finding that I am using my Artfully Sent cartridge more and more for unique and individual cards and I particularly love the lattice sleeve cards to create backgrounds for my embellishments.
For these cards I have used all four CTMH cartridges – Artfully Sent, Art Philosophy, Artiste and Artbooking. I love using Cricut Craftroom to put all the images together to help make it easier to cut the images out. I have used the sleeve from page 16 of the booklet and cut them at 4″ x 5 1/2″ and I have backed the lattice with Glacier cardstock for a lovely soft combination.
The frame has been cut from the Artbooking cartridge page 47 using White Daisy cardstock at 4″. For the first card I cut the centre out but then I had a ‘doh’ moment and used the hide/contour function to cut the full background image out for the second card.
The flowers are what I have left from previous projects. The flowers are cut from both the Artiste cartridge – page 54 in the booklet and the Art Philosophy cartridge – page 50 of the booklet. To see how I have made these flowers please click here. I have coloured the centres of the flowers in Canary ink and sponged the edges in Pixie ink.
The leaves have been cut in Pear cardstock from the Artiste page 54 – I am sorry I cut these some time ago and can’t remember what size I cut them out (possibly about 1 1/2″)
I have stamped the image from Sincere Expressions (which is sadly retiring) in Outdoor Denim ink (which is also retiring).
To finish off I have used Junebug Puffies to create the look of forget me knot flowers and some white shimmer trim.
Here is the second one with the centre that has not been cut out. As you can see it is better without the cut.
Here are some close ups.

It is that time of the year for a new Annual Inspirations book to be released with a lot of new products and to make room for these new products there are a large number of current products retiring. Please check out my website here for a list of retiring products and get in quick before they disappear. There is also more products on the ‘while supplies last’ button.
Have a good week and Happy Crafting.
