For my post today, I created a fun "just because" card:  

I used our Brushed paper pack for this colorful card. The card is a standard A2 size measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I cut the designer paper at 4" x 5 1/4".

I cut the overlay using our exclusive Artbooking Cricut cartridge.  You can find the image on page 62 (C5, Shift, Overlay, < G >) which I cut at 5 1/2".

Now, here's how I used one of the stamps from this stamp set:  I cut the overlay piece using our White Daisy cardstock and then random stamped the image below using the coordinating color - Pixie.  

I cut the sentiment "hello" using our exclusive Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge.  The image is on page 1 (A1, Shift, Pocket Card, < ! > and was cut at 5".  I used Cranberry cardstock which coordinates with this paper pack. It came from pocket card - see below:

Here's the inside of my card:

For the inside of my card I cut out a pocket card from Artfully Sent.  You can find the image on page 22 (C2, Shift, Pocke Card, < S >) and was cut at 4" x 5 1/2" using the Fit to Length key.

  1. what a neat way to use the stamp - makes such an interesting pattern!

  2. It took me a minute to see the stamping because I thought that was b&h paper! Great way to jazz up white daisy for an overlay!

  3. Awww this card makes me think spring. Cute!

  4. The pattern that the stamp leaves at first I thought it was a B&T, once I clicked and enlarged the photo, I was able to see that yes infact it was a stamped image......tricked my!

  5. Never thought about stamping an overlay. Great idea to keep in mind.

  6. great idea...I never thought of using the stamp on the overlay.
