Welcome to our 
Simply Inspired 
Close To My Heart
Blog Hop!

Join us today, as we share with you beautiful creations using our
 NEWEST Cricut cartridge at Close To My Heart ~ Artfully Sent!!

If you have come here from Bren's Blog , you are on the right path..and I know you just saw some AMAZING art at her blog!! J

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 HERE.

Here we go! J

Today I used this cartridge to create a card - a card directly
from the L KEY on the Artfully Sent cartridge.

This cartridge is your GO-TO cartridge for a quick easy card design OR embellish it a bit & make it yours!! I can’t WAIT to use this cartridge in other crafts besides cards too!!

Here is the Pop-Up card I created…

I used the colors Thistle, Glacier, Sweet Leaf & Canary. 

I dry embossed the card base with our FLORAL 5x7 Embossing folder to give it some texture. 

Then just layered “scraps” of paper underneath the flower section to add some color to the card front.

The “For You” comes from our NEW stamp set called Handwritten Print (LOVE this font!)

Take a peek at the Pop-Up inside…

I couldn’t leave the background in the “plain” canary cardstock color (LOL!) - so out came my Spray Pen and some whisper re-inker to give it a bit of texture. J
By adding sequins, sparkles, scraps of paper, etc…I was able to quickly “decorate” the inside of this card.

When you want to create a POP-UP card on the ARTFULLY SENT Cricut Cartridge,  you will need to cut the images from the Pop-Up & Icon function keys.

Of course, you can use these ICON images separately too!! 

The bracket frame on this key coordinates with the EXLUSIVE stamp that is included in this bundle!!

I created this board to share with EVERYONE what ONE key on the new cartridge, Artfully Sent, can do!!
