Good Morning Crafters!

This morning my post comes to you from Heart 2 Heart Challenges Blog featuring Close to My Heart creations by Close to My Heart consultants.  Our challenge this week was to use Hearts in our creations.  I decided to redo a card I made earlier in the year because my original card, which you can see by clicking here, was a 5" x 5" card, which not only costs more to ship but requires a special envelope.  Since I am making kits of this card for an upcoming class, I decided to change it up and make it a standard A2 size card measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2":

I still used our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge but I used a different card shape (and there ARE 100 card shapes on this cart!) that had a different shaped heart.  You can find the card shape on page 69, E9, Shift, Card, < Heart3 > which I cut at 8 1/2" using the Fit to Length key.  That made the card measure (once folded) 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"!  Cool right?  The heart is different from the first card as well.  I did cut the "xoxo" using the Artbooking Cricut cartridge at 1".  You can find the image on page 48, B1, Title, < q > using the Real Dial Size key. For the heart cut out of Ruby cardstock on the inside of the card can also be found on the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  It's on page 69, E9, Shift, < Heart3 > cut at 2 1/2".

I ended up using the stamp set from our Skylark Workshop on the Go Scrapbook kit to random stamp the heart using our Ruby ink just to give it a little extra dimension.  I also edged the white mat on the inside of the card, the heart, and the "xoxo" with Ruby ink.
