Daily Project: Thanks

Welcome to the Exploring Cricut daily project for today. For today's project I decided to make a card (I know you're surprised). You can never have too many thank you cards so I decided to make one for my stash! This one is pretty straight forward although there is some cutting. I started with a card base that was 5.5 x 4.25, for this card the base is bamboo. I then cut a piece of honey patterned paper that was 5.25 x 4 and wrapped it with a scrap piece of ribbon from my stash. Once I had adhered this to the card base I was ready for the Cricut. I cut the butterfly using Create a Critter. I made the following cuts
Butterfly W= 5.02, H= 3.47 (I actually made this cut twice using 2 different pattern papers)
outline 5.02x3.47 (smoothie cardstock)
body 5.02x3.47 (olive cardstock)

The two pattern papers that the butterfly was cut from, I cut the wings off and using the outline as my guide I trimmed enough for the wings.

Once everything was put together I stamped "thanks" in chocolate ink using the Thank You set, put pink sparkles on the antenna, and two opaques for the eyes.

cardstock: bamboo, smoothie, olive (CTMH)
pattern paper: all from Mayberry (CTMH)
ribbon: from stash
sparkles, opaques (CTMH)
Thank you stamp set (CTMH)
ink: Chocolate (CTMH)

That's it for my super simple card. Hope you enjoy this project, thanks for stopping by, and have a stupendous Saturday!
