A "Mod"est Thanks

I love the look of greetings that are fancy and sparkly and all sorts of pretty. But, there are times when a clean, mod look is so refreshing.
For this card, I broke out my Cricut. I don't use it daily, but when I need it, it's a great tool to have. Instead of using the actual letters (I used the Street Sign cartridge), I put the negative, or the space that was left after the letters were cut out, to use. This is a great little tip - just remember to keep the insides of your letters - in this card, I had to keep track of the middle of the "a". It's also great because then you can use the actual letters on another card.
The paper is by Studio Calico. I used two different size circle punches to dress up the front of my card and added some stitching. I love using my sewing machine on my cards.
I also used one of the circles to dress up the inside.

I have to get busy on a wedding card - we are going to one tonight!
Have a great evening.

I never think to use the negatives but this is fabulous. Looks like it belongs in an issue of Cards Magazine! xxD
