Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut Fancy Shape Swing Card with VIDEO!

Here is another card in my ever-growing Close to My Heart Artiste Swing Card series, including a "how to" video!
Today's swing card, from the Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge, is this fancy shaped card.  Remember that these cards are always cut at 5-1/2" and then make into a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" A2 sized card.
The layer shape is from the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  I cut one blue and one white shape at 2-3/4" and the black shape at 3-1/4".
The blue shape is stamped with the stamp set below, which is fabulous for outlining 4 different shapes on the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge.

  20. Awesome swing cards! I am loving your videos of all the CTMH/Cricut cards....any videos that shows the folding processes of some of the cuts are fantastic! Sometime I cut something out and then look at it and think: "Ummmmmmm...." I know Artiste has an instruction book but some of the older cartridges leave it up to us to figure out the folds. Thanks so much for your videos! Love your blog (and the coupons too!).
