Give Thanks...

Clean and simple, with a dramatic pop in person from the glitter paper!  This card was made in a matter of minutes with help from the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  I lined up my images in Design Studio and cut, then applied my layers.  If you do not have Design Studio, you could easily do the same thing with a Gypsy or Cricut Craft Room, which is a free online program.  

My card is based on the inspiration card this week at CASE Study by Angline Yong.

 I loved using die cut I went with the die cut negatives and a thankful theme for my card.  I added a few gems to add a little more dimension to my finished project.
