A Cricutless Thank You!

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

I know I said I had a banner to show you in this post, but I changed my mind!  The banner will be in the next one :) It isn't often any more that I make a completely Cricutless project, but recently I have created two thank you cards (one posted here and the other one to come in the future) without my Cricut! I sometimes have a hard time making thank you cards because I can never decide on a cuts to use, unless I have a specific person/purpose in mind. Therefore, it takes me forever when I do make them, so Cricutless tends to be a bit quicker. This one is a card that my sister and I made for her to sell in order to raise money for March of Dimes.
Here's how I did it:* Card Base - 5.5" x 8.5" (scored at 4.25")
* Card Mat - 5.25" x 4.25" (trimmed with Fiskars Treading Water Border Punch)
* Pattern Mat - 5" x 3"
* Offray Brown Ribbon
* Hero Arts Everyday Sayings Stamp Set
* Brown Momento Ink

This card is super simple to make. I chose earth tones to make it more gender neutral (even though it has a bow). I really liked how it turned out and how quick it was to make. I plan to make some more for my stash using other color combinations and pattern papers.  I will be back in a few days with a banner I made (my first ever) for a baby shower. *~*Thanks for stopping by*~*
