Sweet Moments card made using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Today's card is made using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. I wanted to show one of the best things about this cartridge, which is all of the layers that you can cut for each shape. This particular cut has 4 layers and it gives the cut so much dimension and interest. Not to mention, lots more options!

The cuts I used are from page 42 in the handbook.
I used the Close to My Heart paper pack called Roxy.
I cut the oval shapes out at 2 1/2" and the flowers were cut out at 2 1/2" and 2".


Here are the 4 shapes that I cut and layered.
This is how the shape looks when it is assembled before the flowers are added and the sentiment was stamped.
I decided to use the scroll that was cut out of one of the pieces, so I did not have to toss these great cuts out.
For the sentiment I used this stamp set from Close To My Heart called Sweet Moments.



Thanks so much for stopping by today. I have a great fabric project for you tomorrow, so make sure you drop back in!
