Cricut Artbooking celebrate graphic card

Hello, friends!

Today's project is another card made using the Artbooking cartridge! Check out these chevrons! This overlay is one of my favorites on the cartridge. Although, I think I keep saying that each one I show is my favorite. They are all so great! Oh well, who says I have to pick a favorite?

This card is another example of what you can do with the cricut craft room and an Artbooking overlay. Below is a video on how I did this.



CCR file: https://app.box.com/s/8th9yj7xe43qhzonx1e0
GYPSY file: https://app.box.com/s/6dh8yqtmi41zgv4zcq9c






I used Outdoor Denim, Whisper, White Daisy, Lagoon, and Sorbet CTMH cardstock.

I used washi tape to decorate the little arrow.


I also added some washi tape on the inside for that little bit extra.
