Best Wishes to you card made using the NEW Art Philosophy cartridge

Hello, everyone!

Today I have one last project to show you using the NEW Art Philosophy cartridge which you can purchase by clicking here ==> Melanie's Close To My Heart website.

If you are needing just a little but more to push you over the edge to order it, perhaps  I should mention that when you place an order of   $50 or more in products and purchase the August Stamp of the Month set, Wicked, for just $5/$5.50, you’ll receive the My Acrylix® A Typeface A-size set FREE (a retail value of $6.95/$7.75). Think of this as two promotions in one—qualify for and purchase the discounted August Stamp of the Month set and we'll throw in a second stamp set FREE! It's Extra! Extra!




Also here are the pictures of the cuts on the cartridge as provided by Close To My Heart






On to today's project....


I think this image is actually a leaf, but I thought it would make a beautiful tree. I toiled and toiled over this card because I wanted it took have a clean and simple look with out it being dull. 

The paper is from Bella Blvd.
I cut the tree out at 4" and the shape it rests on at 4 1/2". The white strips are cut out at 1".
This sentiment is form one of the stamps in the bundle that comes with the cartridge.

Thanks so much for stopping by this week! See you back here on Sunday when I draw winners for this week's prizes!

PEACE, LOVE, AND CRAFTS!
