[Video]CTMH Close to My Heart Artiste Laughing Lola Valentine's Card

Today's card was a take-off on one of the card designs in the CTMH Laughing Lola Card Workshop on the Go kit.

I thought it might be fun to make the exact same card with different papers, using the stamps that come in the CTMH Laughing Lola Card Workshop on the Go kit so you could see the versatility of the stamps.  
The stamps that come in this kit coordinate with the Close to My Heart Artiste cartridge and the cut sizes are below:

Below are the two products I used:
Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut Cartridge Bundle:
Close to My Heart Laughing Lola Card Workshop:
The CTMH Laughing Lola Card Workshop on the Go kit contains that stamp set shown above, as well as materials to make 15 cards (5 cards of 3 different styles).

Check out the video below to see how to make this card (click HERE if you can't see the video):

  5. I prefer the red - I think maybe I"d like the purple one better if the green heart was a different color...but not sure what! Great job on both!

  6. The red is more Valentine like. I like the purple because it is more "anything" like & kinda of masculine too.

  21. For a Valentine's card I prefer the red one. But as a "cheer me up" card the purple one would do nicely. Jill P., Manteca, CA

  26. I'm more traditional and like the red card. I love the heart background paper. Thanks for the chance to win this awesome cartridge.

  27. I like the purple/blue card the best, mainly because I like the added details of twine, enamel dots, and stitched lines.

  28. I like the red card better. Maybe if the purple card had turquoise and/or yellow in it I would like it better. The dark colors are dreary to me...

  30. Both are unique, but I really liked the red better.

  31. I like the red for Valentines because lets face it thats the color for the day, but the purple card really caught my eye. I like the contrast in the twine and the detail with the faux stitching around the edge. It really makes the purple backgroud pop, so I guess the purple would be my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I do like the red better. I do like how you used the twine on the other card.

  33. They are both really pretty but I prefer the red version. I loved this card!

  34. I like both versions, but the red is probably my favorite. I think the red would work really well to send to a female and the purple version looks more masculine.
