Thank You Card & Envelope


I've got a fun little thank you card to share today, using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge for the ticket card cut.


I used my favorite hot air balloon from My Creative Time's Fly Away With Me die and stamp sets.  I paper pieced it using patterns from Echo Park's Scoot, which can be found at Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.  I love the bright colors in this one!  It's got great papers for little boys, but I'm also finding that I'm using it for all sorts of projects!


The sentiment and tag are from MCT's Teeny Tag Greetings, and they are tied with hemp from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.


I recently saw a great tutorial on the Silhouette blog that taught how to size any envelope to match your card.  It's really easy and so useful!


For my envelope, I used Lori Whitlock's #10 String Tie Envelope, adjusting the size so that the finished envelope is 5 1/4" x 2 3/4", just perfect for my 5" x 2 1/2" card.
