Thanks a Bunch!


I've got another thank you card made with the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge for you today!  To make this one I welded together two of the shaped images at 5.44", removing the butterfly that is part of the cut with my Gypsy.  Before cutting this card base out of kraft cardstock, I printed  the newspaper ad pattern from the Vintage Papers Imagine cartridge onto the kraft cardstock.  I then cut the oval frame, again at 5.44" out of purple cardstock.

The pretty watering can and flowers image is from Kate's ABCs, cut at 3.25".  I tied a little piece of twine to the handle.


My sentiment, which is heat embossed on the frame, is from the My Creative Time Many Greetings stamp set.  I also added some white stitching around the frame to finish off the card.

Fancy Pants Designs "Beach Bum" Patterned Paper
