Thank You Cards with the Cricut

Not too long ago, I made a pair of thank you cards for a couple of hard-working friends of mine.  Being the daughter of efficient recyclers who collected glasses and cans on one of their first dates, I enjoy using every last scrap of my craft paper.  My scrap/scratch paper is computer print-outs I didn’t need or left-over flyers from my listings.

That’s why I was happy to use the positive and negative pieces of the “thanks so much” sentiment from my Tear Drop Cricut cartridge.  Being a music-lover, every time I see that cartridge I think of a song by Small Change called “Teardrops.”  But maybe that’s just me – I don’t know anyone else who had that cassette tape.

So here are my two thank you cards for my friends:

And just for extra credit, I thought I’d show you this special card I made for a friend who was just baptized.  I made this with the Stampin’ Up! medallion stamp, silver ink, silver embossing powder, a red sticky-back pearl, red ribbon, and card stock.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
