Sketches by Carly Birthday Card Using Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge Card Feature

Hi all you followers and creators out there!! In case you haven't heard; I am honored to be a Guest Designer with Sketches By Carly for the summer.  We have a new sketch for you this week.  Drop by Sketches by Carly for Sketch #59 to create your beautiful cards.  I created a birthday card for my daughter-in-law. 




I left the inside blank until I decide what I want to do with it.  The inside is also paper from the Stella Paper Packet.  The typed words are my watermark.


I used the CTMH Workshops On The Go - Stella paper. It also comes as a paper packet. There is a lot of variety with this packet. I used the cute little June stamp of the month. I love this stamp set. You pay only $5 with a purchase of $50 for the month of June only. It isn't available after June. The wording is supposed to be crooked; so it wasn't me this time. Ha!! 

June is also Stampaganza; which hasn't happened for two years. Purchase two acrylic stamp sets and get one free!! Such a fantastic deal. Click here to order the June stamp special. Select your 3 stamp sets and the free one will display as free, at the end of your order. Also, once you reach $50 purchase; it will automatically display the stamp of the month. You have to click "Add to cart" to purchase it for $5.

Don't forget to check out my Cricut Art Philosophy Virtual Card Club!!  My first 4 creations for the first month are posted under Card Club on the tabs.  I am looking forward to sharing my creations with you.  I would appreciate you telling your friends and co-workers so they can share in the fun.

  19. Hi Gloria, your card is darling. I especially love the DP you chose for the circle. What a nice take on this sketch.
    I also have the CTMH cricut cartridge. My daughter is a CTMH consultant also. It is really the only cartridge I have and it is wonderful.

    1. I appreciate the lovely compliment Barbara. I agree if you have the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge, you don't need any others. I rarely use the others since I got that one. I keep hoping they will come out with another one; but how can they top that one? Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment. Have a wonderful day Barbara!!
