Wedding post #17 - Rehearsal dinner invites

Happy Sunday everyone!!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. So this saturday coming up will be the rehearsal dinner ... boohooo!!! It's going by so fast.. My BIG day is right around the corner.   Here are the invites I sent to my bridal party and our pastor. 

Card recipe: 

CTMH - Kraft paper 
CTMH - discontinued stamp set

I hope you all enjoyed my card today. 

The new CTMH Artiste Cartridge

 This super packed bundle will be available to order on my Close To My Heart websitstarting on August 1st along with a whole lot of great new product including home decor and complete craft workshops!

This cartridge is a MUST HAVE for all paper crafters - including more rolled flowers (great for wreaths, frames and other home decor), die-cut cards, shapes that coordinate with our beautiful stamps and so much more!  If you have our Art Philosophy Cartridge you know how amazing our Close To My Heart cartridges are and I promise you will not be disappointed!  

Here are just a few examples of artwork created with this cartridge

Throughout the brand new Idea Book, Close To My Heart has made it easy for your to coordinate what stamp sets go with which cartridge.  Images are outlined in red and then indicated in the description which cartridge to cut your images with.  Each of the stamp sets come with a sheet indicating the size and page number of the coordinating shape on the cricut cartridge.  In addition the Artiste cartridge comes with two booklets.  In the first book you will find all the images and coordinating keys.  Because there are so many 3D items with this cartridge they have included a second booklet with all the assembly instructions for each of the boxes, cards and special 3D paper projects!  You can view the complete handbook here.

When you purchase the Close To My Heart Artiste Collection you get:
  • Artiste Cricut Collection (featuring 700 images: Shapes, 3D images, flowers, fonts and so much more!)
  • THREE (3) Exclusive My Acrylix Size D stamp sets (Birthdays, Word Balloons, Kudos) that were designed specifically to coordinate with the images on the new Artiste cartridge.
  • THREE (3) sets of 9"x12" Chipboard Dimensional elements that that also go with the cartridge
