Mondays are always fun when I get to see all the inspiring cards at Mojo Monday. Today I couldn't stop playing with my new Cricut Artbooking cartridge to join in their challenge, sketch #305.
The positive sentiment is a Plain Jane from Verve, "Nicest Thoughts." I used the CTMH Sarita paper pack and a plaid piece from Laughing Lola. They match so nicely. Instead of adding a ribbon across the card I used a heart banner from Cricut Artbooking, cut at 8" using the border key on page 49 (border key with <w>). I backed the open heart cut outs with silver glitter paper.
The flower on p. 80 (Icon key with Sugar and Spice Key) was cut using Real Dial Size which I set at 2." I love the lacy effect and the center has heart shapes that pop up rather than cut out. It has a glitter button center covering some tinier hearts that could have popped up. It's tied with dark blue waxy flax. The other glitter buttons are tied with some older Ocean waxy flax.
