Hello fellow 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 (well most of us) and will be showcasing the very versatile CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (AP Cart). This is my first blog and I am very excited to be a part of it. I hope you enjoy it too.
If you are visiting from Michelle'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!!
Thank You card #1 is from the Florentine background page you see below. I created the flowers for both cards from the same paper pattern. Each one is a little different than the other; but appear very close to the same on both cards.
Close up view of the flowers used on both cards.
See below for size and page number from handbook.
Thank You card #2 is using the decorative layer on the AP cart; which adds a different touch to the same style. The layers for the cards are both cut from the same Florentine Pattern page; but they look so different from each other. I find it interesting how you can get two different cards from the same piece of patterned paper.
