You're a Star!

Good morning everyone!

Today I come to you from Card-a-Day blog where our theme this week is "monochromatic"!  I just love these kinds of challenges don't you???

First, let me show you my card:



As you can see, I am using black and white as my colors for this challenge.  I have to tell you I had SO ... MUCH ... FUN ... making this card.  And here's the reason why ... I used the new Artbooking Cricut cartridge from Close to My Heart!!  Yup, you heard me, the brand new Artbooking cartridge that will be available on August 1st!  As a CTMH consultant, I was able to purchase the cartridge early to start playing with it.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this cartridge!

I made this A2 size card using white cardstock and then layering it with some designer paper from our For Always paper pack.  

The sentiment "You're a STAR" comes from one of the stamp sets that comes with the Artbooking bundle called "Take Note".

I cut the "notebook paper" using the Artbooking cartridge:  page 42, A5, < 5 > at 4" using the Real Dial size key and then again at 3 1/4" x 5 1/4" and 3 1/2" x 5" using the Fit to Length key. 

The matte around the sentiment was cut at 2 1/2" from p. 64, C7, Shift, Photo Mat 2, < J >.

I just love the way this card turned out!  If you would like to pre-order this amazing new cartridge, please email me by clicking here and I will take care of that for you and have it shipped on August 1st.
