Okay I really love this New Cricut Collection by Close to My Heart ~ ARTISTRY!! This cartridge includes shapes spanning a wide variety of themes, holidays, and seasons to add some visual spice to any project you create. Get back to basics with the unique font, banners, layered shapes, borders, backgrounds, and other fun icons you’ll find on this cartridge. All of the designs are a must for any crafter! There are two versions available the traditional cartridge and if you own a Explore or Explore Air you can purchase the digital version. Check it out on my website HERE.
For me it includes dogs and cats!!! So as a veterinarian and a crafter this really struck a cord with me. Because prior to 2011 I scrapbooked my life with my husband and my four-legged kids. So I gravitate to animals and this cartridge delivers for me. I know there is an unfortunate need for pet sympathy cards as I have been on the receiving end too many times this year and in the past 4 years. So I wanted to design a few cards that may help others when that time comes to say good bye to their family members.
For these card I used the puppies found on page 9 of the new Artistry card. the heart is found on page 10 and I just hid the contour lines of the paw print. the banner is from page 21 but I stretched the image increasing the height and leaving the length the same. I used the Sincere Expressions A1146 for the sentiment.
