Autumn Give Thanks Artfully Sent Cricut Card - Close to My Heart

Autumn is my favorite time of year (if it would only get below 90 here...) and I wanted to make a thank you card reflecting the beauty of the season.

I used the new Close to My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge to make this card.  See the cut below - I have sizes for the machines. Keep in mind that once I cut the card, I just turned it vertically.
For both the inside and outside of the card, I used the same stamp set - see below:
Here's some more info about the new Close to My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge Bundle:
- 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 and a package of white cardstock.

I also used the Close to My Heart Happy Autumn stamp set - I just love this set - so beautiful and easy to stamp:
Today I had the surgery on my nose to breathe better (no, not a nose job - I'm happy with my big nose thankyouverymuch...LOL!). It went pretty well although now it's starting to hurt a bit more.

I can't believe anyone can resist it. Hope you are doing well today and just make sure your R&R!!

  3. Autumn is also one of my favorite times of the year as well. I do send cards, but usually after Halloween. Love Thanksgiving time, love fall colors, love to wear sweaters, etc.

    I'm so glad to hear your surgery is over, hope you will be on the road to recovery very soon!

  4. This is a beautiful card. I love the colors. Thanks

  5. Beautiful card! No, I don't make fall cards. Thanks for sharing your time, talents, and imagination with us.

  6. I love this card and stamp set. If I have the time and remember to, I do make fall cards. It's usually for Thanksgiving.

  7. Very pretty! I've never made autumn cards.

    I'm glad your surgery went well and I pray you'll feel much better soon!

  8. Beautiful card Joy! I send Halloween cards and then Thanksgiving cards (which are fall I guess). I will tend to make my thank you cards with fall colors this time of the year (my favorite time of the year).


  9. This is the first year I have made Halloween cards, I've done Thanksgiving ones before. I guess I'm branching out...

  10. Don't really do fall cards but several Halloween cards. Take care of yourself.

  11. I have never made an actual autumn card. I do make Halloween and Thanksgiving cards so I do use fall colors and icons. Hope you get lots of rest this weekend.

  12. Beautiful card, thanks for sharing! Yes, I love making and sending autumn cards, lots of birthdays in October! Glad your surgery is over, hope you recover well!

  13. Very pretty card. The cards I make at this time of year have an autumn theme.

  14. No, I don't do Autumn cards, except for Halloween. I send Halloween cards with a silver dollar to each of my grand nieces and nephews.

  15. Oh, I love how you decorated the inside as well as the outside of your pretty card. I sometimes make a general Autumn card that I send for Thanksgiving but I don't usually make cards that just say Happy Fall.

  16. I love to send Happy Fall cards, as I really don't bother with Halloween cards. Yours is very pretty. Thank you for pointing out so many great cuts on this cartridge! I am enjoying exploring all the possibilities that it has. BethAnn M.

  19. Just lovely card as always. Love the choice of colors you used. Thanks for the inspiration!!!!

  20. Love the card Joy, the stamp set is one of my favorites.

  21. 90? Where do you live, next to a volcano? Come on over to WI. We are already in the low 40's at night and mid 60's during the day. Way to early for us to be this cold already. And it's only going to get worse. Ugh. It's goiing to be a hard winter.

    Love the card. Although you do come up with some of the neatest cards. Love the videos too!

    Hope your surgery went well and have a quick recovery.

  22. No Autumn cards per se, but Autumn themed birthday cards (and Halloween themed if in October).

  23. Great card! I send autumn cards too, it is the prettiest season of all. I hope you are feeling better soon!

  24. I have not yet send an autumn card. Thank you for the chance to win the Splendid Soiree Cartridge!

  25. No I don't send cards. It's not something I've ever done.

  26. I have not sent Autumn cards before, but will be this year because I attended a class and made some! Hopefully an unexpected handmade card will brighten someone's day! :)
