Artfully Sent Holiday Swing Cricut Card - Close to My Heart

I just love the wreath swing card on the new Close to My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge. It has so many possibilities!

This wreath card is listed with the wedding themed items, but could be used with flowers, a birthday, Christmas, all kinds of things....

The cut is both the card and the matching wreath of leaves.  I then added additional circles to the project at 3" (two in cream) and 3-1/2"(in green).
Here are the exact cuts I used:
I'm crazy about this bow from the Artiste cartridge:
I also used the matching Artiste cut to the Holiday Tags stamp set, which was used for the center sentiment.

Here's a look at the Close to My Heart Holiday Tags stamp set:
- There is a full font which is very cute
- 50 pop up cards with coordinating icons
- icons, shapes and phrases to coordinate
- 50 cards that create a scene or are swing cards (!)
- 100 quick and easy layered sentiment cards
- 100 sleeve and overlay cards (see video)
- 100 card fronts that could be used as Picture My Life (or Project Life) cards

That's 400 total cards PLUS a font! 
Plus it also comes with 3 stamp sets valued at $60 and a package of white cardstock valued at $15.

  9. Beautiful card! I had a hard time making bows so for a long time I did not make bows. Then I learned how to do the "fork bow" method and now I make bows all the time. Thanks for sharing your time, talents, and imagination with us.

  10. I have two left thumbs when it comes to making bows. I love the swing card.

  11. Do I make bows? Yes! Yes! Yes! I love making bows and my grands expect to have beautiful bows on their gifts. And I'm teaching our grand daughters how to make beautiful bows.

  12. OMG I suck at making bows I have to do the cheater way with a fork or bow maker

  13. I do make bows and love them. The card is so cute.

  14. Pretty with the colors & paper bow. I use a bow maker to tie my ribbon bows. Not made many paper bows.

  15. I make several "boy" cards a year. Sometimes, if it fits the recipient's personality, I make a boy card for a grown man. It's humorous and graciously received!

  16. I have not made any bows this year but after seeing this card I will have to give them a try.


  17. I love bows and have several carts that make them (including one that is exclusively 3D bows)

  18. I love bows on cards and use them a lot! Sometimes they turn out - sometimes, well, sometimes they don't. And I love the bow you used on your beautiful card. Artiste cartridge I believe?
