Princess Birthday Crown card- Artfully Sent

Our niece’s 4th birthday is arriving next week - and at the moment she is enjoying ANYTHING with Princess!!  J

I was so happy I could pull out my NEW Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge from Close To My Heart!!  It had the PERFECT card that we could use for Tessa’s birthday!

I used key H from the NEW Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge…
Take a look at this page…the PERFECT page for little girls that dream of being princesses!

I decided to create the castle swing card shown on the Scene Key. I did not use the suggested card size of 7”…instead I cut it at 6”.
I cut the card base twice…once using Pixie cardstock, the 2nd time cutting it in Juniper cardstock. 
I also cut a rectangle piece using our Brushed paper pack to fit the inside of the card.

Instead of keeping the front of the card  “plain” cardstock, I used the Cuttlebug machine to dry emboss the Damask print onto the Juniper Cardstock. J

I sanded the finished piece a tiny bit - just to bring out the beautiful white that’s in the middle of ALL CTMH papers!

The crown was cut from the ICON key…and was not paired to match this swing card, but that’s ok…After playing with the size of this crown - the final crown was cut at 3” with Whisper cardstock, and I backed it with the solid crown shape cut from our pink glitter paper

I have a feeling there are a lot of compatible shapes between the 4 Cricut cartridges we carry at Close To My Heart.

I used a NEW stamp set called “You Mean the World To Me” to add the birthday greeting. 

I am enjoying this “moveable” cards, and am excited to see if Tessa likes it too!!  J
