Create This Cut Out Thank You Card

Sometimes you just need to say Thank You. Maybe it is for a gift or something someone did, but this cut out thank you card will do it with style.  This is another in the cut out card series.  See the birthday cut out card here.

saying thank you with this card tells them that you appreciate their help or gift.  And it makes them feel good too!  It fits in an A7 envelope for making.  My mother taught me to always say thank you and I drilled that into Cordelia’s head too.  She even says thank you for making dinner!

You will need:
Paper Selection

The base card of this cut out Thank You card needs to be heavier paper (110 lb. wt or heavier.) and two sided.  I couldn’t find Thank You themed two sided paper but if you have some, it will be great.  Use whatever paper you want!   The embellishments are done in solid colors but you could use pattern if you want..

Cutting the Cut Out Thank You card

Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing.  I used a blue gel pen.  Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut?  You can see the trick here.  The font used is called Achila and you can download it at Creative Fabrica. Creative Fabrica is a great source of SVGs and fonts.  I have a membership for Creative Fabrica for $9 per month and everything I download is free.  They even have sublimation stuff now!

The lettering on the front is cut out so that there is only one layer of base card needed, but the lettering is thin so be careful taking it off the mat.

Assembling the Cut Out Thank You Card
This card is super easy.  First, as always, re crease the center fold.  Then attach the purple “thanks” over the cut out on the front, making it offset just a little.  This helps reinforce the card and creates a dimensional effect.  Assemble the butterflies and attach them, the flower and the swish to the overlays.  Then attach the overlays to the front of the card.
Next, open the card and glue on the overlay with the text centered on the lower half of the card.  Then carefully place the swish on the inside.  Line it up by closing the card and making sure it is under the cut out thank you.  Glue it to the overlay.
And your Cut Out Thank You card is done!  And remember, it fits in an A7 envelope for mailing.
