Hello Card

The New Cricut Artiste cartridge really has broadened our creative abilities for making the coolest paper crafting projects. This card is cut and then layered together to create a pop-out "hello" card. It was fun to make and you can get as creative as you want with the front of the card.
I chose to create a pumpkin by cutting 3 ovals using the Artiste cartridge set at 1 1/2" and then I layered the 3 ovals together to create my pumpkin. The leaves and swirly-things were also cut with the Artiste cartridge. Since CTMH My Acrylix stamps allow for bending, I was able to curve the sentiment to match the oval. I love these stamps!

When the card opens the word hello pops-up! How fun is that?! I used Goldrush cardstock from CTMH and the B&T paper is called Dreamin' from CTMH (now retired). The inside strips are from CTMH Chocolate cardstock and the outside strip and brighter leaves are from CTMH Autumn Terracotta. Since the CTMH cardstock has the white core, I scored and then sanded the leaves. It just adds another fun dimension to the card. Thanks for stopping by!
