Thank You Challenge

At Bitten by the Bug2, we are having our next challenge - make a Thank You Card. We can always use a thank you card in our stash. So please join us, and use your cricut to create something that someone will love to receive in the mail.

I used a border from Creative Cards and the Thank You cut from Paper Lace. I welded the border to the top card base, which was a rectangle shape. I then contoured out the lace holes in the border strip. I cut the image on shimmer cardstock on the light card stock settings. I cut the Paper Lace layer using American Crafts card stock on the intricate card stock setting. I then matted the cuts onto a purple background. Now it goes into my card stash, waiting for the perfect occasion to say thanks.

Hearts Challenge

For Bitten by the Bug2 challenge, hearts, I used the Sweethearts and Holidays Through the Year Iron-On cartridges and free SVGs. 

The hearts on my card are found on the tiny flowers from Sweetheart's Three Heart Flowers -- as are the wings on the love birds (a free image of the day from Miss Kate Cuttables). Such dainty images - I cut them on the intricate card stock setting and they cut beautifully! And the tiny stems glued on to the card base hold nice too. The silhouette couple was a free image that I saved last year. I don't remember where I got it though. The girl was supposed to be holding a flower - but that was too thin to save, although it did cut.

Freshly Made Sketches #373

Here's a Freshly Made Sketch challenge that uses up some scrap papers. 

I've been holding onto these scraps for a long time because of I love the coordinated colors and the patterns. I also love seeing the different cards that are made with this challenge. And I think that I am going to make some more using more of my coveted scraps. My stamp is from a Stamping' Up! retired set. It's such a great birthday sentiment go-to, and the stamp is die cut with their new rectangular stitched framelits, which is fast becoming a go-to also.
