I'm a big "clipper." I like to "clip" ideas out of magazines and copy stuff from websites (Pinterest?). I saw this really cute card from Card Maker Magazine (from 2006) and wanted to make a similar card. (like for 6 years...?)
I didn't really want to cut tiny envelopes. Then I realized I could make my Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge cut them for me! (Especially great since for my monthly classes I would have to cut 120...or my customers would have to cut their own.)
This is what I came up with. I love it!
My daughter, who is not as linear as I am, came up with this one and thought it was better:
To make the sentiments, I used the big long stamp on the Stamp of the Month "You Are..." (which is growing on me, by the way). I stamped it on a 1" strip of paper and just cut the strips into pieces.
To make the corrugated paper I used Kraft paper and a paper crimper.
Very easy with my Cricut and all... Let me know if you have questions!
