A Doctor Who Birthday Card with the Artfully Sent Collection

My niece celebrated her birthday this week.  She happens to be a HUGE fan of Doctor Who, so when I first laid eyes on the new Artfully Sent Cartridge from Close to My Heart, I was immediately drawn to one of the images...

Now, the original card had a cute little Scottie Dog at the bottom as well as a sentiment cut out in the word bubble.

I easily used the contour feature in Cricut Design Space to hide the cuts so they are not in the final card.  I LOVE how Design Space (for the Explore machine) and Cricut Craft Room (for the other Cricut machines) make my images go so much farther--PLUS the software is FREE to use!

To hide the image, just follow these simple steps:

The word, "telephone" appears at the top of this booth, but I am using it as a police call box for my Dr. Who I had to add a bit of sparkle!  You can also use the hide contour feature to hide this one--unfortunately, I didn't realize it until I had cut it out already, lol!  ;)

See how the front opens?

I just traced the booth onto White Daisy CS to back it for the card front.

These Stuck on You Puffies provided the perfect addition to my sentiment.  I used my Carmine ShinHan Touch Twin Alcohol Ink Marker to make it truly red instead of the dark pink it was originally.  I am linking up with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge with this little ink tip (even though they are a different brand.)

It turns out that I added that bow tie AFTER making a little mistake with my ink...but always remember, there are no mistakes, just opportunities for embellishment!  ;)
The Artfully Sent Collection comes with ALL these fantastic sentiments for your cards...

Do you see the "Happy Birthday" that I used on mine?
