It always seems like I need a Thank You card. I have so many kind people in my life, and I don’t want their thoughtfulness to go unnoticed.
This Cricut Thank You Card is easy enough that you can make a whole stack in an evening. The classic style could also be used for Sympathy, Birthday, or Get Well. Imagine making a stash of these and being prepared during all of the fall months.

I love using my Cricut Explore Air™ machine to make handmade cards. When I saw this sketch at Clean and Simple Stamping, I had an idea for an easy fall card. If you ever get stuck for a card idea, Clean and Simple Stamping has a gazillion….ok maybe only thousands of card stetches.
The Stretch Your Imagination Cricut Cartridge, was in my very first Cricut Cartridge order. Looking back, that was aged ago, but it’s still a great cartridge to have in your collection. I had seen this leaf many times, and I thought it would work great for this card.

When using card sketches, keep in mind that they are only a guideline. You don’t have to follow them exactly. When I laid out the card exactly like the sketch, I thought it looked awkward. I rearranged it a little, and now it’s perfect.
Sometimes, I have to rearrange elements or even turn the card sideways to get the look I want when using a sketch. Don’t be afraid to try out something new.
