Cricut Artfully Sent Blog Hop

Welcome to our Cricut Artfully Sent Blog Hop!  We will be featuring designs from the new Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge. Cardmaking has never been easier or more fun! With our newest Cricut collection, you can make handmade masterpieces in no time at all. Choose from cards with sentiments cut directly into them, or combine several cutouts to create your own pop-up scenes. Featuring more than 25 different card themes and 5 different card formats including dynamic interactive designs, this cartridge has a card for any and all occasions—even if the occasion is "just because"! Card styles include pop-ups, scenes, sentiments, sleeves, and pocket cards.

If you have come here from Katy's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

This month we have 46 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this cartridge and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I have created a pop-up card using the Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge. For the front of the card, I used one of the sentiments available on this cartridge, as well as featuring some Cricut cut butterflies made with a glitter paper layer.

When you open up the card, there is a beautiful floral cut out, as well as a big 60 pop up panel. The panel and the number 60 were also cut using the Artfully Sent cartridge. 

I decorated the plain cardstock panel by sponging it and adding some floral stamped images using tone-on-tone stamping. The result is a beautiful, bright card to give to my Mum to celebrate her 60th birthday later this month.
