CTMH Enchantment Fundamentals

When you visit my Consultant Website this month, one of the images you see in the photo carousel is this one featuring the Enchantment Fundamentals collection.

I recently needed thank you cards and was inspired by the card in the lower right of this photo. I did not have the All-Star Complements on hand (and I needed to make more than one card), so I turned to the Cricut® Collections exclusive to Close To My Heart and created my own award ribbon.

I used the slice and weld feature in Design Space to create an award ribbon that says "thanks". I stamped the "so very much"; I used Design Space to mock up my card, if you use the Design Space I share below I added the words using the You Are Here cartridge and changed it to Print Then Cut. Please know that I have not tested Print Then Cut using this file. Also, I did not cut the straight-edged pieces using the Cricut®. I choose to use my paper trimmer (and scissors) to save on paper.

When I created my second card I could not find more of the Sapphire print so I used an embossing folder on Sapphire cardstock.

Since there are a lot of circular elements on the cards I used the Goldrush circle that is not used on the award ribbon to decorate the cards. I hate to pat myself on the back, but I am very pleased with how the cards turned out. I hope those who received them in the mail this week like them too.
