Cricut Artbooking birthday card!

Hello, friends!


Today I have a bright and cheerful birthday card that I made using the Artbooking cartridge. One of my most favorite parts of this cartridge (if I put my card maker hat on) are the overlays! They are perfect for cards! The patterns are all what is in right now from the honeycomb pattern you see above to chevrons polka dots, faux bois, and much more.

I wanted to add today that this cartridge DOES NOT need the new universal overlay. Instead, it comes with a regular overlay.

I used Lagoon, Buttercup, Pear, and White Daisy cardstock from Close To My Heart.
I used the Heartfelt Birthday Wish stamp set for the sentiment.
 
For the inside of the card I used the Honeycomb stamp set (pictured below). I have a sneaking suspicion that this stamp set actually coordinates with the cartridge. Stay tuned!



This week's prize is the Pretty Pennants cartridge! The winner will be announced on Sunday the 11th.

Have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!
