August Art Philosophy Blog Hop-Decorative Layers

Welcome to our August Art Philosophy Blog Hop! Each month we will showcase a feature of the amazing Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge which can be purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant.

We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects to inspire you to create with your Art Philosophy Cartridge.

This month we will be showcasing the "Decorative Layer" (shift or no shift) feature of the cartridge.

If you just happened to come to this blog, you should start at the beginning at Lucy's blog -

My project is using page 32 (no shift) to create a scalloped oval to showcase a Thanksgiving Cornucopia.

Here is the Thanksgiving card I created:

I used the following products:

  • Close to My Heart Colonial White Cards (X1410)
  • Close to My Heart Flirty Paperpack (X7160B)
  • Close to My Heart Cocoa Ink (Z2114)
  • Close to My Heart Abundance Holiday Stamp Set (D1519)
  • Copic Markers
Here are my cutting instructions:

Base: 4" x 5 1/4"
2nd layer: 3 3/4" x 5"
Decorative Layer-page 32 no shift- 3"
Hand cut around cornucopia
