Two posts in one week!! I'm on a roll LOL. Thanks so much for stopping by today. I want to share a card I made for a co-worker's daughter that will be graduating from high school next week. I was totally inspired to make this after seeing the BEAUTIFUL tags that Emma @creativetimeforme.com created She released another set of stamps and dies this morning, so be sure to stop by her blog and check it out. The new release is available for preorders right now.
I was looking through the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge handbook that is exclusively sold through Close To My Heart. This cartridge has something for everyone. I found an awesome tag/card on it that I used to make my card. I used cardstock from recollections and patterned paper from the DCWV high school stack. The cutie diploma was made with the Recess cart. The scallop circle was also cut from the Art Philosophy cart. The coordinating stamp is from Close to My Heart. I love that they have so many stamps that coordinate with the cartridge. I added some red tulle and tied a bow with ribbon from Walmart. I plan to add a small pocket inside to add a gift card.
Again, thanks for stopping by and if you would like to check out the Art Philosophy cart or any other items from CTMH you can here.
