Celebrate with a present CARD

Yep today is another day of Close to My Heart Art Philosophy bundle project! *okie thinks she should just become a rep as much as she has talked about CTMH lately*. My card stash has some how gone down over the last few months. Probably because I didn't make anything for 3 months and quite a few of my cards were taken by my friend Carmen aka ScrapperDelighted when she stopped by to pick up her dog I was dog sitting. Then some found their way as gift sets to other people, and then there were the ones I donated to Monique Griffith to auction off at her Crop for the Cure. Needless to say this bundle is coming in handy for me to replenish my stash of cards I never send out anyway! *okie cracks up laughing*.
Supplies Used:
Cricut Expression
Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge
CTMH Celebration stamp set
Karen Foster patterned paper
Various Cardstock
Stampin Up Ink and marker
Gold Ink pad
Cat Eye Chalk Ink

I liked the swirly of the stamp for the present and thought the gold would go with the paper nicely, which it does but is hard to see in the picture. I cut the bow twice and then pop dotted the top layer to the layer that was adhered to the present. Oh on the mat that says "Celebrate" I used DS to size the same image slightly larger for the shadow since this feature was not available *okie so loves her Design Studio and still swears it does a lot that the Gypsy can't do*.

If you are wanting to order the Art Philosphy bundle you can contact Melanie at her CLOSE TO MY HEART WEBSITE.

Oh alright, I'll give you a hug (dh will do the cursing at me when he gets the bill, lol)
