Two Cute and Simple Cards!

A couple of months ago, I was asked to create some thank you cards.  Since I've really been feeling my mojo lately (LOL) I figured I'd better harness some of this energy and come up with a design or two!

The first card I made was an A2-sized modified version of Cricut's Valentine's Day card number 4.  I love the roses on the card, so I used the Cricut Craft Room to hide the original "I love you" phrase and then used the Quarter Note cartridge font to cut the word "thanks".  Since yellow roses are a symbol of friendship, I used a nice bright yellow for the card insert and sentiment.  I paired the card with a white envelope and made a set of 4!

The second card I made sported an ultra-clean and simple design.  This was a little bit of a departure from my usual creations but I like the way it turned out!  I have been wanting to  use a swallowtail pennant for a while now and this card presented the perfect opportunity.  Using the Mini Love Book from Cricut, I cut the pennant out of paper from the Stardust stack by DCWV.  The Kraft paper base is A2-sized and the sentiment is computer generated with a little bit of inking around the edges.  Since the card was so simple, I used some pop dots to lift the pennant for some dimension.  Paired with a matching Kraft envelope, I made a set of 4 of these as well.  But I didn't stop there- I made a box to house them!

Using the clutch-style card box template featured on The Wizard's Hangout I kept with the clean and simple design.  I finished the box off by using another swallowtail pennant as the  closure. I think it turned out to be a pretty cute set!

 Whew!  That was a lot of fun-- I always enjoy a good ol' Creative Daze!!  Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you guys next time!
