Girly Birthday Cards with Artfully Sent

Posted on

I am really loving the CTMH Artfully Sent Cartridge! Creating Quick and beautiful cards quickly has never been so easy for me!
The kids needed a birthday card for the next day, my daughter requested Princess. I opened the Handbook for Artfully sent and Page 26 seemed prefect for the job. The castle got my daughters approval too! I ended up creating 4 card in just over an hour!

Queen for a Day!

I cut this card at 7″ for both the Outside and Inside
For the crown I cut both pieces at 5″
The Castle I cut with real Dial size on at 2″
Birthday Girl Banner is from Pg.25 cut with real dial size on at .5″ (I think that’s what I cut it at.)
I just trimmed the white to create the strip behind the Birthday banner
The Curly swirls are from the Fairy Card below.

Next time I would cut the Crown a little smaller so it’s not hiding the words.

I cut at 4.25″ then I cut cut a piece of paper to fit the back of the front of the card so the cut-out would stand out, I also added a white mat to the inside and cut the castle with real dial size on at 1.5″ and glued to the left bottom corner.
