Celebrate with Party Time!

Despite the craziness of 2020 and thus far on 2021, we at Close to My heart believe there is always something to celebrate!  This Party Time paper collection, available until August in our Annual Idea Book, has so much to offer and celebrate!  I LOVE it!  I have said it before, but what I love the most about this suite is that it is so versatile!  One side of the papers is adorned with shades of pinks and oranges and the reverse side is filled with shades of blues and greens!  The perfect combination!  You can create with the more "boyish" papers or the "girly" version or mix them all up!  I, for one, am not afraid to use pinks with my boys or blues with my daughter.  Not to mention that the papers are so vibrant in colors that make you want to celebrate the everyday happenings not just special occasions!

So with all of the above being said, I decided that I wanted to create 5" x 7" cards with the Artfully sent image and pair it with the Party Time papers.  To do this, I just had to do a few alterations in Design Space.  First, I changed the size of the card, and then I created a second card to use the negative space and letter cut outs from the first card in a second card.  For those who have this Cricut collection, I am attaching my file so that you can create even more variations.  You have to have Artfully Sent to use the file, but if you do not own this collection, keep reading and I explain how you can purchase it later in this post.  Click here for the link to my Design Space file.

Here are the finished cards!!  The possibilities are endless!
