Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge Floral Bouquet card

Hello friends!

Today I have a card that I made using the Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge. Here is a card that I had in my head, but I was unsure the best way to execute it. I think this is a card that I would like to make again, but do it in a different way. Not because I don't like this one, but just for the fun of it! I think this could be done many different ways!

For a fun change, after I assembled the front part of the card, I inked it with Versamark ink. Then added clear embossing powder and heated it with my heat gun. You cannot tell int he picture, but it has a glossy finish. It was a technique I have never done before and would try again!

I cut this card out at 7". I do not have the file to give you today because for whatever reason it won't open. Provo Craft says they know of the problem and are working to correct it.

Here is the page in the handbook!
