Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge - New CTMH Dotty Paper packet - Easter Card

Hello Fellow Bloggers.  It is another great Spring morning in Southern California.  I love it!  The birds are singing and Spring is in the air.

I chose to do an Easter - Spring card combo. I used the new "Dotty Paper packet" from CTMH. Isn't it beautiful? I love how they create paper packets that coordinate so well with each other. It takes the guesswork out of matching. It is available free when you join as a consultant this month; or you can also purchase these paper packets from April 17 - May 31 for only $5 when you place a $50 order with CTMH. Click on button to the right to order yours on April 17. They are beautiful colors and include 24 double sided pages (2 each of 12 designs). I am so in love with this paper. It was a dream to cut using my Cricut.

This is the first card I have ever created from a sketch.  It was a fun challenge and I loved putting all the colors together.  The challenge is for "Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog".  This is the sketch we were to follow for our challenge this week.


I used my CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to make the circles and the scalloped border.  I used Cricut Kate's ABC's Cartridge to create the little rabbit and Happy Easter.  It came with the butterfly on the right and the little flowers.  This paper is such a high quality I was able to cut very small letters without them tearing.   



  

Supplies used for this card:

All the paper except the rabbit cut out is from the new "CTMH Dotty Paper packet"
Happy Easter and Rabbit - Cricut Kate's ABC's Cartridge
Circles and scallops - CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge
Butterfly Stamp - Fiskars
Butterfly stamp ink - CTMH Goldrush
Ribbon - Offray - Joann Fabrics
Bling - K & Company
Foam Mounting tape - CTMH
