This Moment CTMH Stamp of the Month Card

I used a swing card pattern from Artfully Sent (there are so many great images on this cartridge), but there are also cuts for swing cards on the Artiste Cartridge (in case you are still saving up for Artfully Sent.  This card was super quick and easy because I didn’t have to think about patterns or templates for the swing card.  Have I mentioned that the Cricut and Close To My Heart’s cartridges are AMAZING?!

Anyway, I used the arrow patterned paper from the Chalk It Up paper packet as the base of the swing card.  Since I wanted the triangle side to show in the circle when the card was opened, I used the Cricut again to cut a circle and glued it onto the inside of the card.  I also used the Chalk it Up Assortment to add embellishments.

I used the stamp of the month, This Moment, for all of the stamped images.  I did the target in Lagoon.  I also stamped the same image in Sorbet so that I could cut out the heart and attach it to my Lagoon colored target.  The arrows are stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed using gold embossing powder.

Here is a picture of the card when it’s open:This Moment January SOTM card CTMH
