Cricut Artistry Blog Hop

Welcome to our special edition Blog Hop featuring the new Artistry Cricut Cartridge from Close To My Heart.

If you have come here from Nikka'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.

If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog

This month we have 30 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the new Artistry Cricut Cartridge and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

Today is Day 6 of my birthday card series, 2 more days till my birthday! So to continue the celebration, here's another birthday card that I created using the new Artistry Cricut Cartridge.

For the inside of the card, I used the gift card pocket from the Artiste Cartridge and the gift box image from Artistry.  I also added some matted white cardstock on the top inside flap for the card message.
