If you like to make cards, then you have to check out the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cartridge. There are 100 different cards that you can cut with the AP Cartridge! No more boring A2 size cards. Check out all the cards you can make here: Cricut Collections. From there, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on "Art Philosophy Shape Index".
This is a great masculine card.
The card is on page 48 of the Art Philosophy booklet. Cut the card at 5 1/2" in Whisper Cardstock.
Cut a strip of Later Sk8r Background and Texture Paper 5 1/2" x 1 1/4".
Cut another strip of Later Sk8r Background and Texture Paper 3 1/4" x 3/4". Cut a "V" on one end and sponge the edges with Slate Ink. Cut a circle from page 21 of the AP booklet at 2 3/4" from Later Sk8r Background and Texture Paper. Using the Artiste Cartridge, cut the gear on page 39 of the booklet in Slate Cardstock. The gear is Accent 2 (shift) @4 3/4".
Adhere the large strip of B & T paper to the bottom of the card front. Trim to match card shape and using gear as a pattern, trim the partial circle from the strip. That way it will not be visible once you adhere the gear.
Stamp card inside using D1475 Card Chatter Birthday stamp set using Outdoor Denim and Pear Ink. Random stamp one of the gears inside the card using Outdoor Denim Ink. Random stamp a different gear using second generation technique in Slate Ink.
This card requires a 5 x 7 envelope using these measurements. Stamp the envelope using B1514 In Gear using Outdoor Denim, Pear and Slate Ink. Use second generation stamping technique with the Slate Ink.
Thanks so much for joining us this month. Now hop on over to Jean's Blog to see her beautiful creation. Happy Hopping!
You may have noticed my blog looks much different than last time you visited. It is still "under construction". I have been having a great time working with Becky from The Cutest Blog on the Block. Be sure to stop back later in the month when it will be completely finished and I will be sponsoring a contest with prizes!

This is another great cartridge from Close To My Heart that will be available on August 1st.
I have been saying that our other cartridges are so fantastic that I couldn't possibly "need" anything else. Boy, was I WRONG!
Let me introduce you to the stunning new Cricut® Artbooking collection! The collection includes a cartridge to make cutting shapes the easiest it has ever been. The images include FULL layouts in 15 different layout themes so you can create several coordinating pages for each theme. There are 10 themed mini-books, accents, borders, titles, overlays photo mats and more! This really is a revolutionary product—the first of its kind! Cutting edge technology allows users to link shapes according to size. The bundle comes with 3 exclusive My Acrylix Stamp Sets, 3 sheets of coordinating chipboard Dimensional Elements and a 700 image cartridge. (Contact me at email@example.com if you would like to have a copy of the booklet with all of the images and I will email it to you.)
