cut out frame card made using the Art Philosophy cartridge.

Hello, friends!

 Today I have a elegant card that I made using the Art Philosophy cartridge, Frame Flair stamp set (it coordinates with the Art philosophy cartridge), and the Happy Thoughts stamp set.

By the way, I have had tons of customers requesting a special cricut stamp section on my order site. Well, do I have great news for you! I passed that request along and now it is a reality. If you want to know which stamp sets coordinate with the Art Philosophy and Artiste cartridges click here ==> Cricut compatible stamps

This is the stamp set that I used. It is called Frame Flair. It is one of my favorite stamp sets and I will be using it a ton, so I hope you guys do not get sick of it.


I used one of the NEW Anna Griffin cuttlebug folders to add just that little bit extra!
I stamped the frame first and then stamped the sentiment. After that, I stamped the flowers. Lastly, I colored in the frame with a Close To My Heart marker.
 This week's giveaway is the Suburbia cartridge.

Very nice idea to add the colored stamping behind the sentiment, and to color in the edges of the stamped frame. Really gives a different look.

LOVELY card! I sat & stared at it for........I don't even know HOW long! So pretty!! How do you give these away after you make them? Especially THIS one!!! Also, how do you send these when they are thick at the bow part? Do you send your gorgeous cards in padded envelopes so they do not get smooshed in the mail? Thank you SO much for sharing this one. I'm tellin ya, if I EVER received a card THIS pretty I would surely have to frame it!!!
