Chevron thank you card made using the Boho Graphics cartridge and the June stamp of the month.

Hello, friends!

Yesterday Provo Craft released another FABULOUS cartridge, that I am pretty sure you guys are going to love!


Over the years, I have heard fellow cricuteers complain about the lack of font cartridges. Well, this super trendy new font cartridge might just be what you have been looking for! It is called Chalkboard Fonts and would be great for home decor, cards, and more! I have a project made with this cartridge next week that I am dying to show you, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Today's project is a card that I made using the NEW 'ish' Boho Graphics cartridge and the June Stamp of the Month. Chevrons are all the rage at the moment and so, this cartridge was something I having been wanting to do something with for some time now. I kept wanting to make a canvas bag, but was too lazy to go to Hobby Lobby to buy one. I had the cut squirreled away in the Cricut Craft Room and decided to go ahead and make a card.

 I know this is not my usual 'lots of layers' style, but I really wanted this to have a simple look to it. I am really trying to branch out with my design, so you guys do not get bored. Hopefully, this is a refreshing change!

The patterned paper is from Fancy Pants.
This sentiment is from the June Stamp of the Month called Flowering Bunch.
