Thank You Cards

It's winter, but some times I find it important to shake off those winter blahs and throw a little color into the craft projects.  These cards are so colorful and fun they just make me think happy thoughts and sunshine!

I used a cream card stock base and then the same purple paper for all of the cards.  I changed up the pattern paper, using a stack from my stash. I'm not sure why, but I have become really fond of rounding opposite corners and leaving 2 corners normal.  I really like the look of that.

The sentiment stamp is from CTMH and it's one that coordinates with the Artiste cartridge.  I cut a page full of the bubbles (cut at 1 1/2" per the stamp sheet) and then stamped them while they were still on the Cricut mat.
CTMH and Cricut teaming up together on these cartridges (Artiste and Art Philosophy) are a GREAT thing for crafters, if you ask me!  I love both of the cartridges and how they coordinate perfectly with the stamps.

Once I had all of my paper cut and sentiments stamped it was assembly time!  The set of 6 similar cards went together really quickly.  I added twine for a little extra color and called it a day.

Now I need to get busy and use these beautiful cards up and send out "thank you" cards for Christmas!  I've let that get away from me and I need to get on it!
