Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop - Father's Day Card


Hello to all you bloggers! I hope you are having a fantastic day!! 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 CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (AP Cart).  I hope you enjoy your time here and spread the word to others as well.

If you are visiting from Eva's blog then you are in the right place. If not, please start from the beginning with Courtney's blog. See the complete list of blogs after the pictures of the card - further down the page. Please leave a comment on these blogs if you have time as everyone loves compliments on their blogs. Enjoy our blog hop!!

I used a card base created from the AP Cricut Cartridge.  This cartridge has 100 card bases with a total of 700 images including beautiful 3D flowers.  This is the most versatile cartridge I have ever seen and it is so much fun to create with it. 
  
I used the Dotty For You paper packet as it has a lot of variety and choices for both men and women. This paper is only available through May 31, 2012. You can purchase it for $5 with a $35 purchase. Make your selection for the $35 first and the specials will display below your order. Be sure and click on "add to cart". The May stamp of the month is available with a $50 purchase; so you can get both with a $50 purchase.

The sentiment is from "1000 Card Quotes"; which has a variety of choices when you don't have a stamp with the correct sentiment.  I don't have a stamp with Father's Day on it as my father is no longer living.  I created this for my husband.

The second part of the sentiment was created on my computer and printed on card stock from "The Paper Company" because I wanted a textured paper for this one.
