Have you ever tried card making? Years ago, when I loved to scrapbook, I had never made a card. I had a friend talk me into trying some, and I’ve never looked back. Now I still make cards pretty regularly, but I don’t scrapbook anymore, I just play with paper. 😉 I still love all kinds of paper crafts, but when it comes to scrapbooking, I use Instagram and Chatbooks for that. Anyway, that’s a story for another day. Today I want to share with you these fun & easy thank you cards that I put together to send to a few of my friends at Cricut after the Cricut Mountain Make-a-thon that they were so generous to send me to. They were so fun, that I thought I’d share them with you, just in case you wanted to make some too.

Fun & Easy Thank You Cards Supplies:
I started by designing my card in Cricut Design Space. I created the tag shapes using the shapes and slice tools, and found a doily that I liked. I also created the Thank You tag, and used the Draw & Cut feature for them. Then I cut everything out on the Cricut Explore Air 2.
I cut a sheet of white cardstock in half, creating the card bases.
After I cut the pearl paper into the tag shape and doilies, I placed the tags into embossing folders.
Then I ran them through the Cuttlebug machine.
The embossing adds such fun dimension.
Once I had everything ready, I started assembling my cards. I placed the doily.
Then I placed the embossed tag.
After I tied ribbon through the thank you tag, I attached it using dimensional adhesive.
You can see the dimension here.
These cards were so quick and easy to put together!
I did a little different variation on them as well, because I think it’s fun to make them not all look exactly the same.
I really love the way the pearl paper looks cut into the doily too! I think I might cut some out of every color! The shimmer on that paper is so pretty, although you really can’t see it well in these pictures.
Do you enjoy making cards?
