My Project:
Cricut, Art Philosophy, Thank You Card

I hope that everyone out there had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! I know I did :)
Today we are twisting the Giving Thanks challenge into a Gift or Thank You card instead of a Thanksgiving card. LOVE IT!  The card I made is a thank you card I needed to make for a friend of mine who so graciously changed her schedule around to take my family photos.  We needed to get some done fairly quickly and she took care of us perfectly! So this card was made using the Art Philosophy cartridge - I am loving this cartridge, it is overwhelming - SO MANY CUTS!!! But every one that I have used I LOVE!  This shaped card is a jumbo scallop cut out at 5 1/4" so that it will fit in a 5x5 envelope.  My scallop mats were cut at 5".  My papers come from an American Crafts "Amy Tangerine" 6x6 paper pad that I picked up at Big Lots.  I inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress ink and my sentiments come from a Fiskars and Hero Arts stamp set.  I followed the sketch from Mojo Monday and I will also be entering this into Die Cuttin' Divas.  I do have a video to show you how everything came together so I hope you'll check it out.  Please join us over at Cut It Up Challenges and link up your Thank You projects, we'd love to see them.  Thanks for checkin' in!!!


  1. Very pretty shaped card. I love the papers, too!

  2. I noticed that you live in Saratoga Springs...not too far from me...Lehi/Traverse Mt. I am wondering if you teach cricut classes? or know anyone local that does? =)...thanks sooo much

    1. I don't teach classes, but I do have a YouTube channel - MolliesMotif. I think JoAnn's in AF has card making classes you could check into, but other than that I'm not sure of anybody else.
