Silver wedding anniversary card

I made this silver wedding anniversary card for my brother and sister-in-law using the new Artistry Cricut Cartridge for the overlay and backed that with silver glitter paper.  For the bottom half of the card, I used the Hearts embossing folder and a mask to leave room for my title stamp.  Finishing touch with black shimmer trim.

Watch for all the new Close to My Heart products to launch on 9/1/15 at my website.

Great job confetti wishes card

We had a summer intern working in our department this summer and we sent him back to school with a fun card I made from this fun stamp and the confetti wishes paper.  I cut the overlay out from the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge and backed the open star cut-outs with some gold glitter paper for an extra special "pop."

Rose Birthday and Anniversary Cards

My mother-in-law's birthday is coming up so I pulled out the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge for ideas and loved this rose card found on page 37.  I used Hollyhock paper for the 7" base then added some depth to the rose color by sponging with Hollyhock, Cranberry and Blush inks.  Then, added a little bit of shine with embossing powder.  Next up was to stamp the title in Lagoon and include a sentiment inside.

When I was cleaning up, I noticed that the paper I had put under the rose cut out was pretty colorful after all that sponging so I cut it down a bit and made an anniversary card; how cool is that?!?  One sheet of Hollyhock paper for two whole cards, very nice indeed.
