You Are Fabulous! Card

Welcome to our Monthly Joyful Stars February Blog Hop!

Thank you so much for stopping by.  If you've reached my blog after visiting Helen's then you're right on track!  However, if my blog is your starting point, that's okay too... just continue the hop by clicking the links at the end of each posting by each of these talented ladies, and you'll be inspired with loads of creativity.

This month, I share another card I made from the Artfully Sent Cartridge (exclusively by CTMH).  Do you see a pattern here?  I love making cards... and I just keep finding myself going to this cartridge because the possibilities are endless and so EASY!

My card measures 5 x 7 when completed.  I first used patterned card stock from my stash to make the card base.

Using Colonial White Card Stock, I set my Cricut to 6" and then I selected the 'Pocket Card' setting.  Referring to the designs found on page 37 of the booklet included with the cartridge, I cut out the roses with stems pattern.

I turned over the pocket card, after it was cut and covered the roses with a piece of Cranberry  card stock.  I then covered the stems with a piece of Flaxen card stock that I had 'sponged' first with New England Ivy ink for added dimension.  I used Bonding Memories glue to hold the card stock in place and then once it was aligned perfectly, I added additional glue to the entire pocket card and attached it to my card base.

Next, I used a Spellbinders die to cut out a fancy tag from the Colonial White Card Stock and stamped 'You are Fabulous' from the 'So Many Smiles' stamp set (C1619).  I inked the edges with the New England Ivy ink (using the sponge Z697).  I then used 3-D Foam Tape (Z1151) to attach my stamped tag to the bottom of the card.  For some added 'pizazz' I added Bitty Sparkles (Z1263).

I finished of the card with a hand-tied bow using some satin ribbon I found in my stash and with that, my card was done!  I hope you like it.  Please leave a comment below and let me know what you think!
