Artfully Sent Week Card #3

For this Artfully Sent Card #3, I've used a design from a "sleeve" category in the booklet even though it's actually a card shape.

I love this design because it's super versatile 
and ready for many holidays and occasions.  
I've chosen the Pathfinding paper pack which has a fall look, but I think it can be used year round.  

This card would be adorable with pastel baby prints, fun with school colors for a graduation, and patriotic with red, white and blue for the 4th of July, and many more celebratory occasions! 

Find the design shape on page 7 in the Artfully Sent booklet.  It says to cut it at 7", however, the rebel in me went with a smaller version at 5 1/2" tall x 4 1/2" wide when folded.

The word Celebrate is cut out so you could simply place one piece of solid or patterned paper inside the card allowing it to show through the letter cutouts.  OR go crazy and mix it up with several prints as I have with Pathfinding.  It's so easy to just cut small pieces and attach them to the back of the card front.  This would also be a great way to use up paper scraps from your stash!  Looks a little messy inside, so just cut another piece of cardstock the same color as your card base to cover it up and no will know it's messy underneath.  Shhh, it will be our little secret!

Tip from a "paper scrap hoarder":  Save the letters which are cut from the card to title a scrapbook page!

Accents:  Brown Glitter Paper (punched a few holes with a 1/4" hole punch)
Clear Sparkles and a couple 1/2" leaves cut from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  (love my Explore for cutting these itty bitty leaves!)
Bonding Memories Glue Pen (great for projects like this)

Enjoy and we'll see you for Card #4!
