Art Philosophy Cameo

I really like the way the Cricut "Art Philosophy" cartridge works so well with the other die cuts out there!  I used several of my Spellbinders and this pretty silhouette cut from the cartridge to make a quick and easy layered card! 
And in order to enter it in the challenge at
I chose to layer the cut silhouette under acetate.
(This blog has some really fantastic ideas for your cartridges. Even if you haven't any CTMH stamps, it's great for ideas!


After the fact, I had wished I had made the black frame more filigree. At the time I made the card, it seemed as if it would be too busy...now I regret not taking that chance!
I must keep asking myself, "What would Becca Feeken do"?  LOL!
She would have had three more luscious layers and a larger, prettier bow!
baby steps, Jan, baby steps....


This photo shows the reflection off the acetate.
If you have a Cricut, and have been debating buying the "Art Philosophy" cartidge,
get it!
I have only 20 or so Cricut cartridges, and find I use some only rarely. But this one has SO many elements that work well with vintage and fancy cards and layouts, I'm constantly pulling it out!
The other one I love is Heritage.

Have a great week!
