Birthday Card using Art Philosophy
Here is a card I created for my Mom's upcoming birthday using the exclusive Close To My Heart "Art Philosophy" Cricut cartridge. I used the postage stamp type square and dragonfly layer cuts. The top layers were all cut at 5". The blue (dragonfly), red(thin red frame under vellum) and printed yellow background (behind vellum and red frame) of the dragonfly layers are papers from the "Brunch" collection by Crate Paper. I also used a vellum layer under the top dragonfly cut which I embossed it with the "Birthday" A2 Cuttlebug folder. the kraft paper layer is cut a rectangle cut 1/4" larger then top layers all around. The sentiment stamp is from a CTMH stamp set that came with the Art Philosophy bundle and is in "Merlot" cat eye ink. The ribbon is from Michael's. i added pearls to define the wings and body a bit. The card base is a light yellow linen texture from Joann's. All of the edges were inked in either "Cocoa" or "Merlot" cat eye ink. The colors don't every photograph as pretty as they are unfortunately.
