Cricut, Artfully Sent, Close to My Heart, cardmaking, scrapbooking, videos, tutorials
Today's (kind of) quick card is made using the Close to My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut and Anna Griffin Elegant Embellishments cartridges.

Why kind of quick, you ask?

Well, backing the different words with various colors was a bit harder than I thought it would be.

Check out the video below to see how I did it!

Here are the Cricut cuts I used:

  1. I finally understand how the hostess rewards works. I love your card it is so beautiful. Such a beautiful card cut and love that Anna Griffin floral cut and the colors you chose are so pretty. You are too funny in your video. Love it!!

  2. I do understand...and you're very tempting!

  3. Like the card. Yes, I do understand how the hostess rewards works. Had to update & sync up my Gypsy since I had added the Artfully Sent cartridge since last update & sync. Phoned Cricut because the Design Space was not finding all my Cricut cartridges like Artfully Sent. Person had me log out of Design Space & log back into Design Space. Now all the cartridges I have are there. I like the Design Space over the Craft Room & over the Gypsy. The Cricut Explore Air is wonderful.

  4. That's a very pretty card! I understand your frustration with the multi-colored backing. Sometimes what looks simple at first glance can turn out to be a real challenge! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Your card is so pretty, and I think it was well worth the effort to achieve the multi-color background! Elegant Embellishments is actually my first Anna Griffin cartridge, which I finally was brave enough to try, now that I have the Explore. The Artfully Sent cartridge is wonderful, and I loved the way you combined the two. Thank you

  6. Yepper Understand these stamps are so cute...

  7. I understand how the hostess rewards work. Very pretty card today. I like the multi-colored backing, even if it was a bit fussy to do.

  8. Those die cut flowers are so beautiful and detailed! Love seeing how you put it all together!
    Yes, I do understand how the mystery hostess rewards work and it's a fun way to get extra goodies!

  9. Great card and Yes I understand how the mystery hostess rewards work.

  10. You are such a joy to watch! LOL!

  11. I do understand. Thanks for this card. I wondered what I could do with this cart (I get inspiration from looking at other's work)

  12. Yes, I do understand. You had me laughing through that whole video. I think after watching this I'll just use one color for my backing. You sure worked hard for that card!
