[Video]Make Your Own Background Paper with Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut Cartridge

Today's card was made using an overlay from the Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge and the CTMH Honeycomb stamp set (C1537).

Wondering how I did this?  There is a "how to" video below.

Here's what I cut out from the Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge:

I also used a variety of Close to My Heart inks including Outdoor Denim, Sunset, Honey, Ruby, Saddle and Topiary with the Honeycomb stamp set.

Check out the CTMH Honeycomb Stamp set below:
And of course, I used the Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut Bundle shown below:
To see how I did this, including making the rolled up flowers, watch the video below (Click HERE if you can't see the video):
