See the Artfully Sent Cricut Coffee Card with video!

I needed some thank you cards for my fabulous Close to My Heart uplines, Noreen and Naomi, for all their hard work putting on a super fun event in Waco, Texas this past weekend. 

I had Starbucks gift cards for them and figured this coffee card from the new Close to My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge would be perfect!
Here are the cuts I used - notice I have sizing for the different machines.

and the "Have a Cup" is from the Love You A Latte Cricut Cartridge and cut at 2-1/2".

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.

  1. Like the videos real time mostly. If there is a repeated step then sped up is ok also.

  2. Great colors and love the striped ribbon. I like the video in real time but don't mind speeded up portions to keep them short.

  3. I enjoy the real time videos with the speeded up parts of the repeated steps. Thanks for sharing your time, talents, and imagination with us.

  4. Love your coffee card! I like either, actually if I am watching real time and don't need to see a portion of the video, I can forward the video. Thank you for taking the time to prepare the videos as well as your daily creations! Suddenly I have the urge for a cup of coffee...LOL!

  5. Joy - this is such a cute card. I am going to be giving some Starbucks gift cards soon and will have to try this. I love your videos at real time - it helps to see exactly what the steps are and I learn so much. Thanks for your time and inspirations!!

  6. I enjoy real time. The coffee card is sooo cute! I love your bows and I know how you make them but mine are never that pretty - ribbon selection has a lot to do with it too. Good job!

  7. I also like real time video thanks for the chance to win!!!

  8. I love that card! Such a great card to put you gift card into. I like the videos real time.


  9. Hey Joy, I have a question for you... I am going to get two of the cartridges from Close to My Heart I know for sure I want Artfully Sent but if you could only get one other one what would it be ??????

    1. It would be Art Philosophy - lots of stamp sets match it and it has so many versatile pieces and cards. You can get it here (wink):http://joytracey.ctmh.com/retail/category.aspx

  10. Love, love this card Joy! The color combo is just awesome. Hugs, Brenda

  11. Very cute card! Thanks for sharing!

  12. I prefer videos in real time. This card is so cute. Thank you for all the great ideas.

  13. I like videos in real time. Cute card!

  14. I love your card, and it's so appropriate for a Starbucks ( or DD) gift! I prefer your real-time videos, but I enjoy almost anything that you share with us. Thank you! BethAnn M

  15. Joy I would watch your videos no matter the speed but I do love the reel time as it shows that mistakes happen sometimes & you show how to fix them!

  16. Really cute card. Thanks for sharing. I'm having a bit of trouble sorting some of the stuff out with this cartridge.

  17. I love your coffee card and I'm LOVING the Artfully Sent cartridge. I truly enjoy your videos and the speed is fine. Thank you for putting those tips and techs out for us.

  18. Love your card, but I still don't know how and why you change sizes between the machines. How would we know? I haven't received my cartridge yet so I can't play around with it to figure out why you change the sizes. Please share that info.

  19. I really enjoy your videos in real time! Thanks for sharing this card, it's super adorable!

  20. Joy, your coffee card is adorable! Love the brown striped ribbon! I enjoy the real time, but I don't mind a little speeding up to get through the process more expediently. Thanks for making life easier for us!

  21. Love the card! Are you using a CTMH ribbon on this project?

  22. It depends on the ease/speed of making the card. If the card is a fast one, you should do it regular time.

  23. Wow Joy,

    I love this card. I will have to make this and send out to a few friends. Thanks for sharing.


  24. That gift card holder is adorable! I love the colors you used and what a cute design. As far as videos go, I like them in real time except for the parts of the process that are simple but time consuming...like adding adhesive etc. Thanks!

  25. Love the color combo in your card. So nice!

  26. I'm so glad that I discovered your site. Cute projects! Great info! And I really want to win the Splendid Soiree. Gotta have it! Thanks again for the wonderful inspiration!
