Cricut Patriotic card

Hello, friends! 

Cricut Patriotic card

 Happy Labor Day! I hope you are all having a great day with your families! 

The Artfully Sent cartridge will be available any day now, so make sure you keep checking in. As soon as it is ready to be purchased, I will be making an announcement on this blog and sending out an email. I am getting so excited! It is a really good one and I am ready to play!

Today's project is made using the Art Philosophy cartridge and the Artbooking cartridge. I made it for the weekly Bitten By the Bug challenge which called for a Stars and Stripes theme for labor day. 

To make this card, I cut out the stripped overlay from the Artbooking cartridge with my Cricut Explore machine (only $250). Then, I put it on the card base slightly jaunty like I wanted it, marked it with a pencil and cut off the access. I added the Outdoor Denim cardstock by slipping it under the stripped bit. and then the stars.

The Colonial White cardstock piece is cut using a die, but I cannot remember where I bought it.
