Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge bird card

Hello, friends!
Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge Pop Up Bird card

I have another project made using the Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge. In fact, it is another pop-up card. These usually are not favorites of mine. I guess I found them intimidating, but for whatever reason, I do not feel that way anymore. The Explore makes the scoring super easy. That must have been my hang up all along! 

Again, this card was not cut using the Explore, so I do not have a cut file. I can tell you that it is normal A2 size, so I believe all you do is cut everything out at 5 1/2". My apologies for not knowing specifics. I should have wrote it down.

Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge British Themed card

Hello, friends!

Cricut Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge British Themed card 
 Today, I have a card that I made using the Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge. It is one that had to be made since I lived in the UK for a few years. I really loved living there and miss it very much, but I digress. How can you look at that Scotty dog and not smile? 

Something to consider, if you are a Doctor Who fan, you could cut out the phone booth blue and have your very own Tardis!

This card is an example of the 'Scene' feature on the Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge. There are several really cool ones to choose from! If you like the European theme, there is one with the Eiffel tower and a woman with a poodle. It would be perfect with a 'merci' sentiment!

Not only did I use the 'Scene' feature, but I also used the 'Sentiment' feature for the inside of the card. There are so many mix and match things you can do with this cartridge! So, much fun and so many possibilities! Get yours today! ==>Buy Artfully Sent


This project was made before I linked my cartridge to the Explore, so I do not have a file, but I can tell you that I cut everything out at 5 1/2".

Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge Nativity Scene Pop-Up card

Hello, friends! 

Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge Nativity Scene Pop-Up card
Today, I have a Christmas card made using the Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge. Yes, I know you are thinking, "It is very early to start these, Melanie". However, I really wanted to make this card! It is the most perfect Christmas card to send my family and it was so easy to make. Just wait until you see the inside of the card!

Make sure you take a look at the stamp set I used for this card. It was absolutely perfect!

When making these pop-up cards, it is a good idea to have some kind of scoring tool like a score board. I found that using the scoring function on my Explore (using the scoring stylus) in conjunction with a score board was the way to go for me. The Cricut does a light scoring and then I deepen it will the score board

  Here are the cutting details from the handbook.


Here is the Explore file.
