5 Minute Hello Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut Card

Today's fast card uses this month's Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month (see below) and the Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge and took just 5 minutes to make!

I have the flu so there will not be a video with this card but it's pretty easy so take a look below:

I used the Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut Cartridge to cut the heart in white at 1-3/4".
I put the code in there for the Cricut Design Space Users - you would enter that code (including the #) into the search box. Then ungroup the images and delete the top layer. Then size it at 1-3/4".

The rest of the 4-1/4" by 5-1/2" card is easy.  Here's the sizing:

Leaf strip: 3/4" x 4-1/4"
Circle: 2-1/4" and embossed with the leafy Cuttlebug folder
White background: 4"x 5-1/4" - embellish with faux stitching

And here's a look at the stamp sets I used:
First is the stamp of the month, which is just $5 with a $50+ purchase!
Close to My Heart September 2014 Stamp of the Month
The second stamp set is called "Have a Happy Day" and it's really versatile:
Have a Happy Day
It's National Stamping Month and Close to My Heart has a great promotion!
The 30 piece stamp set above is FREE with any stamp purchase of $30 or more (not including the $5 Stamp of the Month)!
