Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge Sun card

Hello, friends!

Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge Sun card

Today I have a fun and uplifting card I made using the Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge. I has a simplistic look, but I like it. You could easily add glitter or patterned paper to it though and it would still be pretty darn cute!

One thing that I should point out. I must have not scored it exactly, because the darker blue color is showing down the side. However, I really love how that mistake added a pop of color and fun to the card. Don't be so hard on yourself when you mess up, ladies. Add a button or a sequin and move on!

I thought that was the way it was supposed to look, before you said it folded a bit off! Great job, and I love the colors.

Wow!!! You really know when to post these cards. We've been having such great weather. Nice enough to enjoy a hot air balloon ride with a warm and sunny day. TFS!

That is a really beautiful, happy card! Thanks for the advice about moving on when you make a mistake. I need to remember that instead of redoing the whole thing!

Cute card! I love your advice to embrace those things that don't turn out quite like we expect. I would never have thought the pop of blue was anything other than a great design choice!

Cute card! In crafting, I've learned sometimes the mistakes are the best additions! LOL

Love love love!!! And figuring out how to work around your mistake....genius. I'm convinced we crafters are brilliant because we HAVE to think our way out of a jam so as not to waste supplies. Amiright ladies? LOL

Ahhh...I love the hot air balloon popup you created inside your card. Our community had a hot air balloon festival the first of September and we had one land on our front lawn. They are soooo huge! You don't realize it from the ground when you are looking up.
Thanks for sharing this fun and uplifting card. Beautiful work! :)
