A Quick Thank You Card!

Here was a simple thank you card that I made during a card workshop I attend monthly.  No Cricut here (YIKES!!!); all the materials and stamps are from Stampin' Up! (except the Stickles).  This could very easily be made with the Cricut though.  I know Elegant Edges has a border that is similar to the punch (how do I know? Check back in a couple of days ;)) used for the top border and of course there are plenty of carts with scallops that would work for the sentiment.  Instead of stamping the image, you could always cut flowers out and hand doodle the little 'stems'.  I think the Cricut is so versatile for stuff like that...who needs stamps?!  (wait, what am I talking about?! I do!  LOL!).  Actually, I prefer sentiment stamps.  I feel like I can make almost any image with my Cricut but it seems harder to cut sentiments (even just a simple thank you) small enough to work for some cards.  Now don't get me wrong, I still do it, but I just think sentiment stamps are wonderful.

So, what are your favorite types of stamps?  You know I said I like sentiment stamps, but I also prefer clear acrylic stamps.  Stampin Up! stamps are very nice, but I hate that I can't see where I am stamping (and they're thinking a rubber clear mount stamp is comparable to the acrylic clear stamps...just ludicrous).


  1. Creative minds create alike!!!LOL
    I LOVE SU too...I agree, you can do anything on the cricut except sentiments!! UNTIL I discovered Chomas Creations(pens,mini markers and embosser)...ROTFLOL! now the cricut does my sentiments...most of the time.
    SORRY, back to stamps- I LOVE the SU stamps, I'm just starting with SU stamps..don't have that many yet. Rubber or clear it doesn't matter to me, I use the "stamp a ma jig".
    Oh, LOVE your card!!!

  2. Thank you for sharing this adorable card! I love easy to make cards! This one is beautiful!

  3. What a cute card! I just got elegant edges so now I am off to look more at the borders as I just opened the plastic late late night and haven't had time to go through the book yet.
    Hugs, Wini
