Thank You Card

Hi everyone. It's Sherry from Macybella Designs. Today I want to share with you a Thank You card that I made. Some of you know that I do a yearly card drive for Arkansas Children's Hospital in memory of my daughter, Macy. Last year I collected a little over 100 cards. This year I already have well over 500 cards and they are still coming. I couldn't be more pleased! :) I want to take this event and turn it into a non profit organization or charity that I can do all the time, working with other children's hospitals as well as taking special requests. You can learn more about this event at Cards for ACH

Anyway, I want to make it a habit to send out Thank You cards to everyone that contributes to my organization. So I have started working on some Thank You cards. I'm sharing with you a simple, dressed up Cricut card today. I found this butterfly card on the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge and knew I had to use it. I cut the card at 5" and lined behind the butterflies with some pretty floral paper from the Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic stack. One of my favorite collections ever!

Next I cut Thank You from Birthday Basics at 1" and the butterfly, also from Birthday Basics, at 3/4". I layered both of them and added them to the card. That's it. Super easy, right? So why did it take me several hours? LOL I am such a slow paper crafter!!


  1. Congratulations on a successful card drive! Your card is simply elegant.

  2. Sherry - how amazing that your card drive is 5 times as big (so far)!!! So honored to be a small part of this!! Your thank you card is adorable!!

  3. What a lovely card! I wish I could have participated again this year, but I will be back for next year's drive. Congrats for the successful drive this year1 You are an earth angel following your heavenly angel's lead. God bless.

  4. Thank you ladies. I appreciate you all. :)

  5. Beautiful card! You make it look easy! Thanks for the detailed instructions! I hope you have continued success with your card project/drive.
