Cricut Artbooking Wild Chevron Card!

Hello, friends!

Today's card came together pretty quickly. I knew I wanted to try a blue and orange combo as I had read on a decorating blog that they are complimentary colors. Where I can see that they are now that I have used them in a papercrafting sense. I highly doubt I would ever decorate my house with these colors. Well, at least not the living room...dinning room...any bathroom really...sigh. Maybe a kids bedroom. Yea, lets just stick with kids room ;-)

Ok, so this card is made using the Artbooking cartridge, and, LST in Colorado, it is a regular A2 size card! Now ladies, I want you to look at that darling overlay. Search high and low on any cricut cartridge out there and you will not find a chevron overlay. Believe me because I tried to make my own several months back to no avail. This background would be great on just about any card or layout. Another stamping company has a die that does the same thing, but it is only comes in one size. You can make this as big or as small as your machine will cut. Now, I usually don't lay on the sales pitch this thick. However, I want you guys to understand just how great this little chevron overlay is! I squealed like a little girl when I saw it! I have had to hold back using it because I didn't want you guys to think this cartridge only had one cut on it.

The little lion is also a cut from the cartridge and is stamped with a coordinating stamp set called Wild Wonders. It is not one of the stamps that comes with the cartridge. However, it does coordinate with the cartridge. It can be purchased separately for $13.95. This stamp set also includes a giraffe, monkey, and toucan.

Here is the video I promised for the Hide and Contour tutorial:

I used Pacific Blue, Buttercup, Autumn Terracota, Crystal Blue, and White Daisy cardstock.
The sentiment is stamped with Pacific Blue ink and is from the Wild Wonders stamp set.
  I have told you guys that I try very hard to give the absolute best customer service out there. You can call, email, or text me anytime with problems or questions. I always hope that my sweet customers agree that I give good customer service. You guys do send me the sweetest emails to let me know I am doing a good job and you have no idea what that means to me! It really makes my day every time. There is no Courtney-Lane Designs without you guys. I would have packed up this popsicle stand long ago if I didn't have the sweet and generous followers and customers I have. Being blessed does not even come close to describing how you guys make me feel!

Here is an email from another satisfied customer:

Melanie,
I just have to respond to you nice 'thank you' email....you are doing all the right things..I could have purchased from a couple different reps, but I've purchased from you in the past and you were great about a couple questions I had after purchasing 'Art Philosophy' and I LOVE how you are showing us different items you are making now with the new cartridge - ArtBooking!  So really it was no contest as to who I would purchase from... just wanted to let you know 'why'!!!
Thanks for sharing all your great creations!

Melanie, the Broncos are big here in Colorado and their colors are blue and orange, though I'm not a fan. But you sure make the colors rock!! Because of you, I'm falling madly in love with the chevron. I've been trying to resist the Artbooking cart, but my will power is starting to wane. Looks like I'll be ordering mine soon. Thanks for sharing this adorable card, and I love love the lion.

Really cute card. Good customer service is hard to come by now days. Big stores don't feel like they have to do it anymore. Thankfully there are people like you that value customer service and their customers.
