Cricut Artfully Sent Baby Card

I FINALLY got to go see those babies!  Oh my goodness are they just bundles of love.  Now I can show you the card I created with the handy little Cricut Artfully Sent Collection!  :)
The clip at the top just holds the card closed for pics.  ;)

I wanted this card to fit in a standard A2 envelope, so I sized these to cut at 5.5 inches high.  This is incredibly easy to do on the Explore since it imports all of the cuts you need at once. 

 I was not sure what color combo I wanted to go with for each of the card "parts," so I cut them each out in both Glacier and Indian Corn Blue.  Now, I really wanted to highlight that onsie in the opposite color, so I just did this...

Now just cut the half of the onsie that you traced.

I attached the new onsie to the inside of the flap, and the front of that card panel to this one...

My friends had TWINS, remember?  So I just used the alphabet on the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge to make a "x2" to add to the sentiment.  I added a sweet little bow of Slate Diagonal Striped Ribbon too...

I traced the edges of the "x2" with my ShinHan Warm Grey Alcohol Marker.
Finally, I had some fiddling to do with these sentiments to get them just right for the twins.

I curved the top part of the sentiment, added the "s" at the end, and stamped the rest of it underneath.  This was actually really simple after I figured out what I wanted to do.

I am SO pleased with how this one turned out!  Can't wait to make more with my Explore!  :)
