I love participating in this blog hop. I hope you enjoy the inspiration you receive here as well. If you just arrived here from the generous and talented Michelle Snyder's blog you are on the right track. It's one big loop so if you do get mixed up, you can go here to see all the participants and links to their blogs.
We are celebrating the release of the new Close to My Heart Cricut cartridge, Artfully Sent. Jam packed with images, this one is dedicated to card making. Pop ups, scene cards, fancy folds, etc. there are so many options.
When I got my cartridge, I spent some time browsing the book. I always wanted a Volkswagen bug (still do) so I fell in love with the love bug image on the N key.
This VW is perfect with the Wanderful paper and complements. I love this saying from the World Traveler stamp set. And the black arrow washi--ahhh, I love it when products coordinate so well together.
There is a shadow image of the VW that you can place behind the cut out but for my purposes I preferred to cut another image from glacier cardstock and put the windshield, etc. in place to make my black bug pop. And I sanded my black image just a tad to give it a vintage beetle look.
I had a lot of fun with this particular key so stay tuned for more VW bugs. But now, on to the lovely Lynn Como's blog. Enjoy!
