Cricut Artbooking Damask card

Hello, friends!

Before I get started with details about today's project I wanted to let you know that my neighborhood is having it's annual garage sale and we are participating. As such, I have a TON of scrapbooking supplies that I am selling, so if you want discounted stamps, paper, organizational cubes, and other things come check it out! I live in a large community and there is always lots of good stuff to buy. If you live in the Dallas area and are interested, please send me an email (melliemel77@gmail.com) and I will give you my address.

Today's card is made using the Artbooking cartridge, the Sincere Expressions stamp set, and the Frosted paper pack. This card was a no brainer because when I first saw the damask cut out, I knew that with a little CCR manipulation  I would be able to turn this into an elegant card. All I had to do is use the hide and contour tool to make my cricut not cut the little notebook holes.

I used one of my Whisper marker to color my color ready seam binding to match my card perfectly. Love that!

Your card is gorgeous. OMG you just keep finding these treasures in this cartridge. I love the papers and colors you chose too. I don't use the CCR but never worry about it as creativity is what it is all about any way. You give and share your awesome creations and then the idea is out there to work wit. Thanks for all you do and how you do it.
YOU ROCK!!!

Not sure how to use the CCR, but I'm sure I can find a way to get rid to the holes on the side. Beautiful card. How do you make your bows, or was it ready-made?
