Shape It Up! Challenge with Scrappy Frog

Sorry I'm late getting this up today, I've had a busy weekend! This month's challenge at Scrappy Frog's Challenge Blog is Shape It Up! (shaped cards).

I made two cards for this challenge, both using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge collection exclusive to Close To My Heart.  Did you know that this cartridge has 100 card cuts on it?  They make it super easy to make interesting cards.   The first card I made is the one on the right:

This card was made using cuts on page 24 of the Art Philosophy handbook and papers from the Florentine line.  I cut the base Card at 5.5" from the Garden Green CS, and the Decorative Layer at 5.5" from the light allover pattern.  I cut the Dragnfly at 4.25" from the medallion paper, and the Layer at 4.25" from the allover Twilight (blue) pattern.  I adhered only the body of the dragonfly to the Decorative Layer cut, and put 3-D foam tape under the wings.  I used Patina Stickles around the dragonfly and let it dry.  Nice & easy!

This card was made with cuts from page 32 of the Art Philosophy handbook, and papers from the Stella line.  I'm sorry I forgot to record the sizes I cut this at, but it's easy to figure out sizes using test cuts on some cheap or ugly paper, or by using you Gypsy or Cricut Craft Room to adjust the sizes of the layers.  I cut the card base from Sunset CS.  I cut the Oval2 from the red/orange pattern paper, and the Decorative Layer from Tulip CS, both at the same size, and adhered everything.  I cut the Layer from Sunset CS and adhered it using 3-d Foam Tape.  I added a few Opaques Pearls and that was it - a quick & elegant card.

If you want more information on what is included on the cartridge or in the entire collection, please let me know!  If you'd like to buy Art Philosophy, I'd LOVE to have you as my customer.  You can either shop online here, or email me to set up an online gathering where you can earn hostess rewards on any order of at least $150.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope to see you again soon.
