Artfully Sent Reindeer Card Piecing and Freebie

Happy Thursday crafty friends,
Hope you are having a wonderful day. Today I am showcasing another project I created from the fun and ON SALE….Artfully Sent cartridge.  I have been having a ball working with this fun cartridge in conjunction with the Cricut Explore and Design Space software. So here is what I came up with.

Okay I just have to insert something here…trying to get pictures of this project has LITERALLY been like PULLING TEETH!!!! First I took pictures with my camera…and my card wouldn’t read in my computer!!! I could use is in my camera, but my card reader in my laptop wouldn’t pick it up….UGH…spent about 45 minutes trying to get that to work. So I finally gave up and then turned to my phone. Took photos again and then tried to message them to myself…and I kept getting a send failure notice…UGH. Then lastly, I tried “emailing” them to myself….FINALLY….SOOOOO I apologize, these pics aren’t the best quality but I think they will work

Here’s a look at the completed card. I used some green cardstock for the base. The base with the HO HO HO is a cut in the Artfully Sent cartridge. I used the Design Space software and my Artfully sent cartridge to create this adorable little reindeer piecing.

Here’s a closer look at the stamped sentiment. The frame and the sentiment are both also in the Artfully Sent bundle. I used my Cranberry Ink Pad to stamp the frame and sentiment. The tag is already in the Artfully sent cartridge too.

Here is just a slight side view to show that I used a little foam tape to give the reindeer piecing and the sentiment a little lift. I finished off the card with a little bow. I also added some Gold Glitz stickles to his little wreath to jazz it up. The papers I used were once again from the DCWV Evergreen Stack.

  1. Love the card. Your reindeer is adorable!! I just have...um...a question. By any chance did you use the mirror option for the Ho Ho Ho? Because the picture looks like it reads oh, oh, oh??

    Thanks for all your inspiration. I just love how you figure out bits and pieces from a cartridge for your bears, animals, etc. You always turn out a great idea.

  2. Pretty card Melin! Love the cute reindeer and the Ho Ho Ho border!
