New Stitched Together Cards

Stitched Together - Free Design Space Link

How adorable are these cards - all created with the brand new stitched together cricut collection and the "Say It In Style" stamp set from Close to My Heart! 

The shapes in this collection coordinate and expand on the creative possibilities of Close To My Heart’s Stitched Together paper collection. 

Create using a variety of images including leaves, hearts, flowers, butterflies, and more Ideal for cards, scrapbook pages, and more. For Cricut Maker® and all Cricut Explore® family machines. 

Lets take a closer look at the cards created with this collection and how you can get the design space link for FREE!!!!

This card is designed to be portrait style, however in the middle of assembling this card, I flipped it to landscape! Both styles work wonderfully!  

This banner really makes this card pop - the banner provides the perfect placement for ANY sentiment.

This card has many layers to it. Add some 3D foam to the leaves, and flower to really make this pop. A few itty bitty sparkles on the lady bug wings, and this card is finished. Pick your any sentiment from the "Say It In Style" stamp set to finish this card! 

Sponge a little ink along the edges of this butterfly and a bit of gold shimmer give him an added WOW factor as shown here. 

This card is sooooo fun! The bottom is cut by the cricut in a wave pattern. This leaves the inside of the card to be exposed, which was used to for the sentiment. The hearts have a bit of GOLD shimmer brush to them. 

I saved my favorite for last! This card is so stunning, because of that flower. Add a 3D Foam square behind the flower center and the petals for extra drama!
