[Video]CTMH Artbooking Hello World Cricut Card

Today's card, made using the Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge, could be used for a new baby, someone starting a new job or going into the military or even getting ready to take a trip. Or as a "just because" card.
I used the Cuttlebug "Anchors Aweigh" embossing folder for the background to the "hello world" - see closeup in above photo. Below is the sizing for the "hello world"."
Below is a closeup of the inside of the card - I added some stamped images from the CTMH Sail Away stamp set.
This is another easy card to mass produce!  I have all the sizing of the pieces in the video so be sure to scroll down and watch it!

I used:
1) the Close to My Heart Artbooking cartridge bundle which you can get HERE:
2) the CTMH Tommy Paper Pack - X7169B - comes with matching cardstock not shown (click HERE to see more):
3) the CTMH Sail Away Stamp Set - C1530 (click HERE to see more):

  5. I like how you used the "hello world" not as just a baby card -- great card. My plans for this weekend are to try to get some things organized in my home and craft storage area, trying to get caught up on cleaning the house, and if the weather permits (rain forecast for the entire weekend), do some much needed weeding in the garden. I know it doesn't sound like fun, but it's really getting out of hand. Thanks for the chance to win!

  10. This card was very fun! Love the layers and embossing. I don't have any plans for the weekend yet. I need to check what's playing at my local movie theater as it is supposed to be a rainy weekend. I love to go to movies when the weather keeps me from being outside. Have a great weekend!

  11. Great card! I'm always looking for masculine card ideas! This is perfect! It's been very windy here so this weekend will entail lots and lots of raking to clear all the leaves and pine needles that have been blown from the trees...we have an acre plot with a big garden in a farm-like setting so "yard work" is usually an all-day affair when we get to it! Oh yay (she says sarcastically)...

  15. I will be going to an apple festival and craft show and enjoy the beautiful changing of the leaves. I crafted most of the week, making cards for family birthdays.

  16. Great card. We have lots of leaves falling now here in Indiana. We also get quite a bit of rain. The wetness of the rain brings the rich color of the leaves richer. Raking is basically a two or three step procedure. It seems like once the first batch is raked up, another one starts to fall. Any hoot, I love this masculine card. Thanks for a chance to win. Have a great weekend.

  17. Joy - love the Nautical card - if nothing else I need to get some of that Chevron ribbon! I'm hoping for a quiet weekend for a change. Just started making some Christmas gift tags for a fb swap and I have a long way to go on that one! I really love your Joy Christmas card also! Can you tell I'm already "all about Christmas" - ha?!! Thanks for sharing.

  45. Celebrating my birthday this weekend. Saw that the Notre Dame game was being played here in Dallas. Was wondering why they are holding it here in Dallas? I went to a Notre Dame vs Penn State game that was played in FL when I lived in FL and Notre Dame won.

  53. I live in a senior building of 50 apartments. We try to plan activities year round for all to enjoy. Some things work and some things don't. This age group responds in one of three ways. 1) "I don't wanna" or "I'm not interested" or "I'll try it once." I am very active so I am always looking for ways to keep my mind busy. As far as what I am planning to do, "clean." We have our yearly inspection coming up and everyone works hard to have our building as well as our apartments look nice. However, when inspection is over, I am taking some time to start off my Christmas holiday season by making cards. I need to start early with this many people to make cards for. I am truly excited because I am a "newbie" card maker and I owe the joy of doing this to my daughter who decided that I needed just one more thing to do in my spare time. Besides this gets three generations involved in doing something as a family. I just love it.
