Thanks a bunch!

Hello there!! It's been  a long time since I've posted a card!  This is a thank you car that I recently made for my aunty!  I've been having fun making this style of card, it is very simple but I love it!! 

This is the card all put together.

This is the card, I wrote my personal message on the back of this card.

I folded an accent piece of card stock

I added the sentiment to the "band" part of the card 

The assembly of this card is very simple.  It is basically 3 pieces.  You will need 1 card as your main card, add some die cuts, stickers, draw a picture, whatever your heart desires.  Get a smaller piece of paper and cut it down to at least half of the first piece. Make sure that it's the same width as your main card.  Fold it in half, slip the main card inside the card that you just folded.  Now for the last piece, since it is just an accent, it can just be a strip since it is just an accent.  Wrap it around the entire width of the card.  This piece holds the card together.  You can leave it as it is, or decorate it  like I did.  It will also look cute, with a ribbon or tulle tied around it as well.  You can also add more cards if you'd like.  This design is great for invitations as well.  

To make this card I used the cricut walk in my garden cartridge, and butterfly punch.

I hope you like it!

Just wanted to check in, and share this pic that I took last month.  More on this pic to come...  Summer is pretty much over, but it has been the hottest here thus far.. Can you say global warming!  I've never experienced heat like this here in Hawaii in all of my life!  We've been hitting 90 almost everyday!!  With the humidity, you can only imagine how hot it is!  It's unbearable!  I am so thankful, that I haven't gotten heat rash yet! I'm knocking on wood, because when I was younger I suffered from a bad case of heat rash.  We are still not outta the woods yet, with hurricane season either, I guess we should be so lucky that our problems have only gone as far as humid weather.  I hope the fall season brings, cooler weather soon! 

How is the weather in your neck of the woods?
