A Cricut Thank You: Part 1

first 5 cards
After getting sidetracked by other things day after day, and dealing with technical difficulties, I am finally able to post the first part of my Cricut Thank You series!
I gave myself a challenge to go through all the cartridges I own and any that has a thank you type statement I would make a thank you card with it. This was for a couple of reasons. First, I needed to build my stash of thank you notes for whenever I need one. Second, I really want to make sure I use the cartridges I have and I like challenging myself to do so. Third, and probably most important ;), I wanted it for my blog so I could share it with everyone!
There is probably going to be 4 parts to this, containing 5 cards each. Most of the accents on the cards are from Cricut cartridges (except for ribbons, buttons, etc…). I have HUGE stash of old patterned paper and I try to use these up so you might see some from years ago…but that doesn’t bother me! We’ll just call them vintage!
LL thank you
This one is from Lyrical Letters. The size is 4.25x4.25 and the cardstock I used is Bazzill.
SB Thank You
This one is from Storybook. The size is 5.5x4.24. The cardstock is just plain black, don’t know the brand. I then sprayed white cardstock with Dew Drop Glimmer Mist and it gave it this shiny silvery look. You can’t really tell in the picture. The Thank You was connected, and I just cut off the piece between the Thank and the You. The little swirl is also from Storybook.
WC heart felt thanks1
This is from Wild Card. I decided to cut the actual card with one of the cuts from the cartridge as well. I loaded an 8.5x11 sheet of paper and hit fit to page and I believe it came out to be 8” tall! The cardstock is generic gray, although it’s hard to tell. Patterned paper is from an old stash I had.
I then took Ice Stickles and smoothed some over the heart for some sparkle. Here is a close up of that:

Another one from Lyrical Letters:
LL Thanks
Size is 5.5x4.25, regular white cardstock, plain black ribbon, and patterned paper from old stash, which I believe was Provo Craft!
WC thanks for everything2
Another one from Wild Card, size is 5.5x4.25, regular white cardstock. The color cardstock and patterned paper is from a DCWV stack and the accents on the squares are from Accent Essentials.
WC thanks for everything

Well, that’s it for part 1! Be on the lookout for parts 2, 3, and 4 very soon! I better get busy…

  1. Very cool! That's a great Idea. I also love the simplicity of some of the cards.
