Thanks a bunch card using the new Preserves Cricut cartridge

Hello, everyone!

Today I have a card that I made using the new Preserves cartridge from Cricut. This cartridge is seriously cute, but can be made elegant too. This idea was born last Sunday when I was trying to take a nap because I was poorly. All I kept thinking about was a grape card with the sentiment of thanks a bunch. I went through the layout of the card in my head. I sorted out the papers I would use. Then I tried to remember if I owned a sentiment that said 'thanks a bunch'. I had done so much of the planning I could not sleep because I wanted to get out of bed and make this card......so I did.



The paper is Basic Grey's Wisteria(one of my favorite lines of theirs) and the sentiment is from Verve. The 'top note' shape around the sentiment is a SU! stamp that I cut out.

Have a great weekend!!

I try to write things down if they are keeping me from sleeping. That way I can rest knowing that it's written down for me to deal with later!

mdog said...

Does your mind ever rest?? :-)
I have a wine tasting party every year and this would be perfect. Thanks.

You know I have the same trouble all the time - I never sleep well 'cause my mind is always racing - not necessarily bad stuff but things I need or want to do!! But this is a really cute card! TFS!
