I really liked the optional layout shown but I wanted to change it up just a bit to include the Typeset Compliments (X7139B). They are just too fun to leave off! The only 'change' I made to the actual pieces of the layout was to flip the 'postage' piece over to the other side that was cut using the Arts Philosophy cricut cartridge (Z1686). By changing from the juniper damask pattern to the 'aged' notebook pattern I was able to incorporate many of the compliments.
Here is the Original layout as shown:

After completing the layout, I created these five cards - another bonus project found on my website! I only added one sheet each of Desert Sand, Bamboo and Cocoa cardstock. Four of the 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 card bases were cut with the Arts Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. I also used the AP Cartridge to cut several of the shapes. My cricut sure has been getting lots of use since I got this cartridge! It has been so much fun!
