Back to Basics Thank You

This weeks challenge over at Whimsical Wednesday is "back to basics." The challenge is to create a card/project that is cricutless. In addition to not using the cricut, we had to use some type of "old school" embellishment (sticker, rub-ons, chipboard, glitter...). I decided to go way back to basics. I pulled out my very first "Card Creations" magazine from 2003 and found a cute thank you card that definatly uses "old school" embellishments.



Pretty basic, but oh so cute!!!

Supplies used: cardstock - white, green, bright pink and 2 shades of orange; patterned paper - Sweetwater; rub on - mini thanks 3 by Making Memories; eyelets - Making memories; flower punch - Martha Stewart

Happy hump day everyone!

Amazing job. LOVE the colors. You used those eyelets in such a creative way. You are so right basic but so beautiful. Thank you for showing how great a card can still look without the cricut! So glad you could join us this week at Whimsical Wednesday:)
