Elegant Thank You

Hi Crafters! Today Glora and I are doing our Cricut Cut Challenge. This month I chose the birdcage cut from the Straight from the Nest Cricut Cartridge.  It's been a while since I used this cartridge so I wanted to pull it out and use it.  Saw this birdcage and thought that it might be a challenge to alter it as I kinda like to do. 

So I decided to make a square card and enlarge the cut.  For some reason I love doing this and I have a tendency to do it as well.  Here is my card...

I cut the size at 9" and my card is 5"x5".  The patter paper is from the DCWV Linen Closet paper pack.  I loved the colors in this paper pack, soft and elegant.

I had cut out two birds just in case and so I had an extra one and decided to decorate the backside of the envelope w/ it.  It's kind of hard to see on the picture.

Make sure you head on over to Glora's blog to see what she made with this cut.  She's my favorite crafter.  I want to be like her when I grow up.  I LOVE the way she completes a card.   :)

I love that you decorated the envelope too. That paper pad looks SO pretty too. I love that we both made thank you cards with this cut! Hugs- Glora

Same cut yet your cards look so different. I like the idea to decorate the envelope! Great job!
