I made three cards in a similar style. Frankly, once I pulled out my Cricut Expressions machine to cut the sentiment, I figured I may as well cut a bunch of them. I now have a little stash of pre-cut sentiments for later use!
My goal was to try to make some thank you notes that a bride may wish to make to mail out after her wedding. (My niece is getting married in June, hence my preoccupation with wedding items!)
I created a 5x7 inch card from Black Ore Petallics cardstock. I also cut the sentiment out of the same paper. I embossed a piece of Bear Grass Petallics cardstock for the background and trimmed it to fit the card front.
I lined the card with Premium White Cardstock, trimmed to size. You can stamp a message, write by hand, or since the papers in the stationery collection are 8 1/2 x 11 inches, you can even place the cardstock in your printer and print a message.
The card will fit into the WorldWin A7 Envelopes, which come in all the colors of the stationery cardstock.
I created another 5x7 inch card, in the landscape format.
I made the card and cut the sentiment from Beargrass Petallics, and I embossed Black Ore Petallics. You can see that the cardstock embossed very well. The Petallics collection is very heavy weight, and very rich and luxurious.
I know that some brides prefer to use a smaller sized card for thank you notes, so I created one that is 3 3/8 x 4 7/8 inches.
That is my ode to simple and elegant! Let me tell you, this was harder than anything I have made in ages! Well, thinking of the idea was hard, but it was simple to execute once I figured out what I wanted to do!
