Close to My Heart Artiste Square Swing Card

Another card for my Close to My Heart Artiste swing card series!  This time with a square shape.
I cut the card from the Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge above at 5-1/2".  The matching square size, that matches the card perfectly is 2-1/2". I ended up using a 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" square and I just cut that using my paper trimmer.  I did that because the blue made a nice layering effect.
Here's a quick video on how to make this card (click HERE if you can't see the video):

  22. love the swing card. Just wish I could afford the cartridge.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The video tutorials you do are great. Not having a lot of experience with the cartridges I have, it would be helpful to see how to get a card or die cut from those itty bitty illustrations in the book. I don't know if that is helpful for a specific topic, but I am looking for more ways to incorporate cuts on my scrapbook pages.
    My favorite is still the Art Philosophy cartridge, and definitely have the Artiste on my wish list!

  34. I am totally loving this series of swing cards from the Artiste cartridge!

    I enjoy videos showing cards or layouts from Cricut cuts, detailing sizes and showing elements, techniques used, etc. I can read and read and read and sometimes not understand how something is done but if I'm shown how to do it, I can do it a lot easier.

  35. Love your videos using close to my heart cartridges. You make it so easy to make them on my own.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I like watching organizational videos!

    ReplyDelete
  37. love your video-and you have a great way of teaching! Can you do a video showing a swing card where you put something on the back side of the swing area? (so when you open the card there is a 'surprise' message on the left side?) I have made a few and need some inspiration! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Love both organizational videos and scrap booking videos as well. Thanks!

  41. I prefer the Tropical Colors. Really cute pages

    ReplyDelete
  42. Since my pics would work the best with the tropical theme I will choose that one. Really like the colors for both though.

  43. I love the Tropical Colors myself. These pages are really cute. I don't have that cartridge I think I must get that one :-) Thank you for the video's ... I like the video's I can follow them better than just reading the how to. :-)

  45. Lovin the lo's thanks for the inspiration. I still have a ton of pics to scrap from my cruise

    ReplyDelete
  46. Normally I would prefer the traditional layout with the red, white & blues, but in this case I like the tropical better. I think it is because of the contract of the color with the white photo mat.

  47. beautiful - love the swing cards - have to save my money for the cartridge.

  48. You spoke a little too fast for my old ears, it sounded as if you said stamping on "the edge of the arm" is a great way to season new stamps, but I know that is not what you said. Can you explain a little slower. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Thank you for all these examples! They are so cute! I really appreciate you posting all the info needed to make these cards and layouts. I am a newbie and really appreciate this. The "When I was A Kid" would be a great addition to my stash as I am making albums for my children. Thanks for all you do. You are a blessing to many. Bev

  50. I would love to see other fancy fold cards...or some that show how to make layouts with the cartridge you are giving away! :)

  51. Loving the swing cards. Will definitely look into finding this cartridge in my area. I am relatively new to the Cricut and enjoy using it but I know I don't use it to it's fullest potential. Would love to see more videos on some of the special effects that you might have up your sleeve that might not necessarily be shown in the instruction booklets.
