Cricut Artbooking Hello World Masculine Card
Today I used the Cricut Artbooking cartridge, available through Close to My Heart, to make a masculine card for my husband. The “Hello World” saying is perfect for a new baby but it can also be used for a software/programming card because “Hello World” is one of the first programs that people learn. My husband has been in computers for a long time but I still remember when he got that first “Hello World” back. It was a happy moment that we both remember fondly.
I created a standard A2 card (4-1/4 x 5-1/2) base out of white cardstock. I cut pieces from the CTMH ProPlayer Paper Packet to fit just within the edges of the card, leaving a small white border.
I cut the “Hello World” words out at 2.5″ using white cardstock.
To give the cardstock a bit more strength and dimension, I covered it in clear VersaMark and then coated it in white embossing powder.
I almost just added the words to this card and called it done but it just looked so plain. So I tried a few more things. Oh! I used that Art Glitter glue again. It worked great on details. YAY!
I used a blue Copic marker to color these silver paper clips. They fit the card better blue than silver.
I used the CTMH Real Life stamp set for all the stamped images. I LOVE stamping on cork! I got this cork a long time ago but I just recently got it out and tried stamping on it. LOVE! It’s so cool. This cork is adhesive backed which makes it a cinch to apply to things. I stamped directly onto the cork and then punched it out with a circle punch. Awesome!

I used cork on these recent projects too.
I hope you liked this card! It was fun to make and it made my husband smile. YAY!

Lovely use of cork. Thanks for the reminder about heat embossing for strength.
