Thank You Card

It was my daughter’s 6th birthday last Thursday, and we celebrated with friends and family on Saturday. Despite the rain and a quick change of plans we had a wonderful time. She received several gifts and now it’s time for thank you cards.

I went to a few craft stores looking for some “pirate inspiration”, because her party was a “Buccaneer Bash”, and I found nothing!… Ok, I lie. I found a few things, but nothing that really jumped out or was reasonably priced. So I came up with a black and white pattern and a simple design. The patterned paper can be changed out with any paper, and the accent can say anything you need it to. Again, it’s a really simple design. I also placed some white card stock on the inside so that a little note can be written. My Daughter’s going to LOVE writing the notes I’m sure 🙂

What you’ll need:
-Cricut Machine (I have a Cricut Expression)
-Cricut cartridge “Accent Essentials”
-2 sheets of black card stock paper
-1 sheet of white card stock paper
-1 8 1/2″x11″ sheet of black & white pattern paper
-12X12 paper trimmer (ruler and scissors would work too)
-Glue stick
-Stickles “Diamond” glitter
