Today I chose to share with you a simple BABY card that was created from the D key of the Artfully Sent Cricut collection.

I am really enjoying the Sentiment Function Key of this AMAZING Cricut cartridge!!! 

Key D

You can receive 2 cards from this 1 function key…one a 5x7 card and the other a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card!!  

 LOOK at all the options on this D key of the Artfully Sent cartridge!!! There are 8 different card options…but of course you can use these Cricut cut items on projects, pages & more!

On today’s card, I cut the card base from Pacifica cardstock.  Cutting your cards from this cartridge is so QUICK & EASY!!!

Look at the BEAUTIFUL scroll border & the wording at the bottom of the card!!
 I stamped the Hearts (from the retired,hostess stamp set “Doodle Signs” ) and added some 3D foam tape to make them “pop”!

Next, I took the NEW Flaxen colored cardstock, and ran that through my Cuttlebug using CTMH’s beautiful CHEVRON 5x7 embossing folder. If you haven’t tried out our WONDERFUL Embossing folders - you’ll want to make sure you do!!  They can emboss a 4x12 piece of cardstock!!  Yes, it can be 12 inches long!!

Then, I pulled out our Chevron Border Punch (another FAVORITE new product!) & punched the border design in Glacier cardstock, and backed it with a scrap of our Brown/Tan Glitter paper. 

I tied it off with our NEW Slate diagonal ribbon…I use this ribbon often because you can’t BEAT the $3.95 price for 5 yards of ribbon! J

Now "Hop" on over to my dear friend, and fabulous creator Gina Brandstetter’s Blog to see her work!
