Spring cards

Here are some cards we created for a home gathering make n' take. We love the spring themed paper and embellishments in the new Close to my Heart catalog!

The hostess wanted to make something using the CTMH Artbooking cricut cartridge. This card uses one of the "frames" meant to hold a 4X4 picture in a scrapbook, but we just adjusted the size and now we have a cute card accent! This card also uses the new Lolly Doodle paper and new pink dots.

This card uses one of the "border" features of the Artbooking cartridge. The border is meant to be used as a scrapbook page accent, but we cut it twice and overlapped the middle pieces to create an overlay for the card. This card uses the new Balloon Ride paper and smoothie washi tape. The necklace in the background also is a new item to purchase from Close to my Heart. It's part of the new base and bling line. You can custom design a necklace using either a square or circle pendant and choosing your design from a big selection of stickers from the style sheets.
