Art Philosophy Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop!  We are a group of Close to My Heart consultants and will be showcasing the very versatile Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  If you are visiting from Erin's blog then you are in the right place, if not, please go and start from the beginning at Courtney's blog:  Creating with Courtney.

For my project, I decided to make a Mother's Day card using our phenomenal cartridge.  First -- here's my card:

I used our Lucy paper pack for the card.  I just love the colors in this paper pack and thought it would fit well with my card.  Two of the coordinating colors I used are Cotton Candy and Sweet Leaf.  

I cut the card using our Art Philosophy cartridge as follows:

Card base:  p. 55, D5, card < Rctngle7 > at 41 /2"
Butterflies:  p. 55, D5, shift < Bttrfly2 > at 1/2" and 3/4"

The stamp set I used for the sentiment is a retired one called "A Little Everything".  To embellish the butterflies, I stamped  them with an image from the "Love Life" stamp set and then put on some Silver Glitz Glitter Gel -- I just LOVE glitter.  Here's a picture of the stamp set:
