Thank You Cards or Any Occasion Cards Using Cricut Artfully Sent,Cricut Artiste and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridges

Hello friends.  I hope everyone is doing well.  I am still having major pain issues; but I hope that changes soon.  I am receiving acupuncture and going to start treatment with a new Dr.  

I created these cards in December; but haven't had time to post them.  They are all the same die cut from Cricut Artfully Sent.  I love this cartridge.  It makes it easier to create my cards; and takes the guesswork out of the sizing, etc.  I am using the Cricut Explore to create them; so I size them to whatever I want them to be.  If you are using the Cricut Expression; you can still do that; but they are already pre-sized for either a 5 x 7 or the A2 card.  I think most are set for the 5 x 7 size.  

I used two different paper packs for Card 1 and 2; which are from the Seasonal Expressions 1 Idea book; which expires March 31, 2015.  A new Seasonal Expressions 2 will be coming out on April 1st.  I can't wait to see the new products!

Card No. 3 was the first card I created with the Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge.  I fell in love with this one before I got the cartridge.  This card style really works great with the double sided CTMH paper.  I glued my top half back; but you don't have to.  I just liked it better that way.  You can change the inside sentiment by just using a rectangle (or square) and adding words or die cuts to it.  It is quite easy; especially in Cricut Design Space.

  10. What a wonderfully charming little set of cards! I love the shapes you created and it was so fun to see the same structure used with different colors and patterns. I thought it was especially brilliant of you to go the extra mile on the second one and make such a gorgeous envelope! I also liked how you took the time to make the inside of the card pretty, too. What a versatile card base and it was clever to see it used for different types of cards. Well done and thank you for sharing these with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! I hope that you're able to feel better soon and that the new doctor will have some innovative ideas that may help. But in the meantime, keep your chin up and just know that even though you're not feeling good, you're still able to create beautiful things!
