Friend Card Using Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Hi everyone!! It is already feeling like summer here in Southern CA.  I think I saw on the news that everyone is having a heat wave here in the US.  I hope everyone is doing well and taking time to create.  I love reading and following my followers blogs.  All of you are so creative!!  I created this card for fun using the sketch from Papertake Weekly Challenge.  This stamp set is a retired CTMH "Find Your Style".  I love it and bought it from another consultant who had several left over.  It was sold before I joined CTMH.  I thought the title was appropriate for the paper I chose.  This is my first time to create a 6 x 6 card.





Close up with butterfly and Friend stamp.



Supplies used for this card:

Base card is 6 x 6
Card Stock for base card - CTMH White Daisy
Die Cuts from Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
Pink Card Stock - Recollections
Paper - Recollections "All Girl" Paper Pad
Ink - Versa Mark Dazzle
Embossing Powder - Recollections
Stamp Set - CTMH "Find Your Style" (Retired)
Butterfly paper - Coordination (Joann)
Butterfly punch - EK 3 way
Ribbon - Craftsmart (Michaels)
Bling - CTMH Bitty Opaques Pearl
Foam tape

Check out My Card Club - Sent to you by mail each month. 


These are the 4 cards I created for the first month of my card club using CTMH "A Tree" stamp set.  It is so cute.  You can change the stamp set if you prefer a different one.  Read more about my Cricut Art Philosophy Virtual Card Club by clicking here.  This is a picture of the stamp set chosen for this month.  Each month is a different stamp set.
