Espresso My Thanks!


Here's a fun little shaped thank you card that I made with the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge.  I welded together two 5.45" shapes for the card base, using my Gypsy to hide a scroll cut out at the bottom.  I cut the shape again and adhered it to the card base to hide the folded side.  Next I shrunk that same shape down to 5.06", and cut it in patterned paper.


My espresso cut is from the Love You a Latte Cricut cartridge, and it's cut at 4.18".  I ran the top layer through my Cuttlebug.  Since all four layers are cut from thick Papertrey Ink cardstock, the cup has some nice dimension.


The adorable sentiment is from My Creative Time's Classy & Fabulous stamp set.  I was happy to see it fit in the My Creative Time Stitched Oval Die!
