Thanks a Bunch!


Here's a little thank you card I made using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and some coordinating stamps.  The cream base of my card is cut at 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".  The brown layer is cut at 4" x 5 1/2", and the patterned layer is 3 3/4" x 5 1/2".  To get my border just the right length, I used the "Fit to Length" button, and cut it at 5 1/2".


My flower stamps are from the Close to My Heart Hooray Bouquet stamp set.  This is not one of the stamp sets included in the Art Philosophy bundle.  There are some separate sets that also coordinate, and I could not resist this one.  I cut the flowers at 2" and 2 3/4" and stamped them with brown and red ink.


For my sentiment, I die cut my oval using the My Creative Time Stitched Oval Die and stamped "Thanks a Bunch" from the My Creative Time Many Greetings stamp set.

What a sweet flower and I love those papers.
Thanks for visiting my site. I know you said you liked the songbird cartridge. I have a giveaway for that cartridge which ends this Thursday. I thought you might like to try for the drawing.

Wow, what a great flower, I love your color choice. I have the Art Philosophy cartridge, but have not played with it. I am working on decorating notebooks, Junie B - Jingle Bells, Batman Smells at Columbus Children's Theatre. The always enjoy their notebooks, but I only have a few more days to complete them....rush, rush, rush. Then I start working six (eeek) days a week on the show,
