Simply Inspired Artfully Sent Blog Hop


Welcome to our Simply Inspired CTMH Blog Hop! This month we are highlighting the brand new Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge. If you have come here from Margi's Blog, you are on the right path! 

The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. 
Its super simple to hop along with us - just click on the link at the end of each blog post to move to the next one! Here we go!

For this blog hop, I decided to create "Sentiment" card from the Artfully Sent cartridge. There are 5 basic card styles: Sentiment, Pop-Up, Scene Sleeve and Pocket cards. Let me show you what this style of card looks like:

I am in love with the Sentiment card style because of how easy it is to attach different patterns of paper to the inside front of the card to create a really fun effect. For this card, I chose to use the new Confetti Wishes papers along with the Purple Glitter paper


To add a little pop to the card, I used my 1/4" hole punch along with the glitter paper and created sprinkles for the cupcake. I finished it off by adding some doodling lines around the outline of it. 


As you can see from the picture of our glitter paper, you get three shades in each pack. For this card, I used the darkest shade to create the biggest contrast on the card. I think it looks great with the Thistle cardstock. 

Now "Hop" on over to Bren's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the
