Here is another Artiste card found on pg. 32 of the handbook using Slate cardstock. I accented the front with a pretty shape found on pg. 44
using the Avonlea Off-White cardstock accented with some of our adhesive backed pearls. I included the coordinating envelope accented with some Avonlea Green and Slate cardstock and a "Congrats" sentiment found on one of the stamp sets included in the Artiste Cricut Collection!
The inside of the card includes the "Congrats" sentiment also - embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. The sentiment shape is found on pg. 65 of the Artiste handbook (shift
In the center of the shape I added a faux hydrangea flower that I made using the Asterisk shape(
8) on the Artiste cartridge! Here is how I made it:
I cut out circles in incremental sizes: 1/2", 3/4", 1", 1 1/4", etc. and stacked them with 3D Foam tape between each layer.
Then I set the asterisks on my piercing tool push pad and pressed down in the center of each asterisk with my embossing stylus to help it curl up. Then I layered the curled flower/asterisks in the center of the top circle with a layer of Liquid Glass underneath. Give it a few minutes to dry then add a layer of Liquid glass on the outside edges of the next circle and add your flowers - and so on until the circles are covered!
I love how easy it is to create "outside of the box" with Close To My Heart products. Don't you? Back tomorrow with more artwork!
