Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge bird card

Hello, friends!
Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge Pop Up Bird card

I have another project made using the Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge. In fact, it is another pop-up card. These usually are not favorites of mine. I guess I found them intimidating, but for whatever reason, I do not feel that way anymore. The Explore makes the scoring super easy. That must have been my hang up all along! 

Again, this card was not cut using the Explore, so I do not have a cut file. I can tell you that it is normal A2 size, so I believe all you do is cut everything out at 5 1/2". My apologies for not knowing specifics. I should have wrote it down.

Love love this card!! I was intimidated by those swing and pop up cards too, but your making them look oh so easy. Received my cart yesterday (what a nice surprise), and can't wait to try my hand at both types of cards. Keep rockin', can't wait to see your next project.

What a beautiful card! I love that you show us different cards, that we can make. I can then, try too repeat it. I have a problem remembering thing, so I have not cards and post notes. I had a head injury a few years ago. But, I love this card and am going to make it. Thank you so much.
