Today I have a tutorial using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. Those people who have asked for tutorials have quite often mentioned card tutorials, so today your wish is my command!
Now I am not sure if I told you guys or not how hot it was down here in Texas all summer. Well, this week we have gotten a momentary reprieve. However, when I made this card I was thinking lots of cool thoughts ;-)
|I used all Close To My Heart products (cardstock, stamps, adhesive backed pearls, ribbon, and markers).|
|I cut the card out at 5" using the Art Philosophy cartridge. This will make it 5" tall when folded in half.|
|I then scored the center using my Scorpal.|
|I then cut out a 4 3/4" circle using the Wonderland paper pack.|
|I adhered it ont he inside of the card, so that the patterned paper shines though.|
|Then I felt like this card needed a little stitching (don't I always ;-)) using a Crystal Blue markers|
|Then using the Art Philosophy cartridge I cut out this basic heart at 1 1/4".|
|Then more stitching...this time using my White Unibal Signo. This is not sold by Close To My Heart, but oh so handy. I have had many questions about the white pen I use. Here it is!|
|Then I added the heart to the center.|
|The sentiment that I used is from this stamp set. It is called Snowflakes and coordinates with this cartridge as well!|
|I used this Crystal Blue ink pad.|
|Then added the sentiment to the center of the heart.|
|Now to add the pink ribbon trim I used the liquid glass as an adhesive. It works great on fabrics!|
|This is ribbon I used. It the is Pink Designer ribbon collection.|
|Then of coarse I used some adhesive backed pearls.|
|Voila! This was super simple to make and would be a really cute Christmas card to send or it could be cut smaller and used as a gift card on a bag.|
