CTMH Art Philososphy Card Hop

Welcome to our July Art Philosophy Blog Hop! Each month we will showcase a feature of the amazing Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge which can be purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant.
We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects AND some blog candy!!!
Lucy Kelleher, our hostess and fellow CTMH Consultant, will be giving away a stamp set! She is giving away a prior Stamp of the Month set that can no longer be purchased called "You Are ...". (This stamp set has a $17.95 retail value). You will find a picture of the stamp set on her blog. To enter to win, you will need to leave a comment on her blog and on every stop of the blog hop. If you also become a follower of Lucy's blog, she will give you another entry .
This month we will be showcasing the "Card" feature of the cartridge. Did you know there are 100 different card shapes you can make with this cartridge? You heard me correctly -- 100!!! Now we won't be able to show you ALL 100 card options, but we will show you as many as we can.
If you just happened to come to this blog, you should start at the beginning at Lucy's blog -
My project is the "ticket" shaped card found on page 25 of the Art Philosophy booklet. Here is the finished product!!
I used the "Dotty For You" paper pack for this card along with "A Sip" stamp set.  The featured color is "Lagoon" (one of my faves from Close To My Heart).  The card base was cut at 5 3/4".  Next I cut 3 pieces from White Daisy cardstock at 2 1/4"x1 1/2".  I distressed each piece with "Lagoon" ink with a sponge dauber.  I stamped the images on White Daisy cardstock and carefully cut them out.  They are then attached to the center of each rectangular piece with 3D foam squares.  Since the center of the card has a different pattern that can make it difficult to write on, I included a 5"x2 1/4" piece of White Daisy (also distressed with Lagoon ink).

So that is it!!!  So simple and fun...the Cricut and Close To My Heart really make it easy to create all kinds of awesome paper craft projects. Thanks for stopping by! The next stop on your blog hop fun is Connie ~
