The Art Philosophy Cartridge has many card bases. You can use them as they are or alter them on you gypsy or Cricut Craft Room design software. I used the heart card base found on page 26 of your cricut handbook. I hide the heart contour and place an enlarged Flower cut found on page 57 for the card base. You do not weld the flower to the card base. You just place it evenly on the front of the card so the image cuts out. I cut out the card on white card stock first. Next I cut the card out in this pattern paper. Next I stamped my 2 flower cuts. One for the front and one that shows when you open the card. So its 2 sided. The baker's twine was placed in between the 2 flower cuts and adhered together. I strung the smaller cut flower that I stamped in the center of the cut out on the front of the card with baker's twine in between the two card base layers. Next I adhered the 2 card base layers together. This is the first time I made this type of card and it went together easily for me. For inking the stamp I applied 2 inks on my petal stamp using sponge daubers.  Indian Corn Blue and Sunflower.  The green came out when mixing these 2 colors. It created a nice affect for the flower petals.
