Thank You Cards Using CTMH Ivy Lane Paper, Cricut Artiste and Cricut Artbooking Cartridges

Hi Blogland!  I hope everyone is having a great summer.  It has been a very hot summer here in Southern CA.  I think a lot of people are still having severe weather or heat waves this year.  

I created these cards in June; as Thank you cards; but they could be used for any occasion.  I love to see how many ways I can create different cards, using the same paper and the same card base.  I used a Cricut Artiste card base for these; which is the same card base as the previous ones I created.  The previous ones were horizontal and these are vertical.  I love this card base.  There are so many ways you can use it.  All three cards were created using CTMH Ivy Lane paper.  These are only 3 of the 6 different patterns in this paper pack.  I hope you enjoy them.

Card #1 - Using CTMH Ivy Lane Paper Pack

Card Base is a dark purple; which is part of the Ivy Lane Paper Pack

Supplies used to create these cards:

Card Base and Dies - Cricut Artiste and Artbooking Cartridges
  • Flower base actually has a cut inside to layer the dies; page 80, Artbooking handbook or #M46BF9 on Cricut Design Space (You have to own the cartridge.)
  • The shape on the front behind the flowers is page 35 Artiste handbook or #M46556 on Cricut Design Space to use with Cricut Explore.
  • Borders are on page 53 of the handbook or #M44994 in Cricut Design Space (You have to own the Cartridge)
  • Inside die - Page 58, Artiste handbook or #M3BB69 in Design Space (You have to own the Cartridge.)

Cardstock - CTMH Cotton Candy on No. 1, CTMH Hollyhock on No. 2 and the dark purple on No. 3 is part of the Ivy Lane Paper Pack.
