Artiste and Art Philosophy Card

Yesterday my Artiste cartridge arrived and this afternoon is the first chance I've had to check it out.

Start to finish, I spent about three hours making six of these cards!  It takes me too long to decide what image to use, get it sized in Design Studio and pick papers.

This card has elements from both CTMH Artiste and Art Philosophy.  The key is from Art Philosophy and the key hole is from Artiste.  I had to cut them out of a couple of different colors of paper before deciding that the metallic gold on top of the olive green looked best on the background paper.

The sentiment was printed in Hallmark card software.  Then I cut the hearts from the Artiste cartridge and used blue painters tape to temporarily attach them onto a sheet of printer paper and print the words.

There's a little inking on the light green heart and around the outside edge of the card.

 The background paper is from a K & Company 12 x 12 stack.  It's another sheet with over sized designs so I cut it down to use for my A2 cards.

With so many great images on the Artiste cartridge, I really hope I can come up with a more elaborate card design than this!
