Letter of the Day at My Cricut Craft Room





Good morning, everyone! Today is another design team post for My Cricut Craft Room! Today's theme is the letter 'T'. I was thrilled to do this post because I have the perfect project for you today-shirt notecards with a colorful tie!! As a member of the LDS church, I see a LOT of missionaries in white shirts and very colorful ties. These notecards are perfect for sending a little note to a missionary, for a missionary to leave as a 'sorry we miss you' card, or as a birthday/father's card for any dad or grandfather. This card is so versatile and I love the way they turned out with those ties!



You can find the images and card base on page 75 of the Artiste handbook. The cards, ties, and pockets were all cut at 4 inches. (Make sure you do not have the Real Size button activated or the ties and pockets really will be 4 inches tall and will not fit on the cards.) The cards were cut from some white cardstock and I used my Gypsy to space the ties evenly on my mat so I could cut them out of seperate colored papers all at the same time. I also lined up the pockets to cut on a small piece of paper. (This is a great way to use up your scraps.)


After assembling the cards, I cut out 4 of the matching envelopes to go with them. The envelopes are also found on page 75 and cut at 4 inches. (Again, watch the Real Dial size button. If it is activated or lit up, the envelopes will not match the sized of the cards.)



Next I cut out a pouch to put the cards and envelopes in. The pouch is also from the Artiste cartridge and is found on page 43. I cut it at 4.5 inches out of some burgandy cardstock. Because of the thickness of the cards and envelopes together, I added some scorelines to the pouch to make it able to carry the thickness.
