Hello friends and welcome to a little bit of card making inspiration. Gratitude style.

The line is Care Free, and that is truly what this post is all about.

Inhaling in, exhaling out…latching on to that Care Free feeling and wrapping your heart around some gratitude.

Whether it is for yourself or someone special in your life, gratitude is such a powerful action, practice and intention.

Today I want to share how I embraced the Care Free collection to inspire my heart in some recent card making adventures.

I chose 3 different ways to embrace this collection in my card making design.

I used cut files, added an interactive pocket, and used alpha dies to add a bold sentiment.

All of these ways elicit a fun variation when it comes to crafting, yet they all portray the same message.

Thankfulness and gratitude.

These leaf cut files were really fun to cut out of coordinating Care Free paper.

The beauty in using paper pads when creating is that everything is suited to work so well together.  It takes a lot of the “thinking” out of paper crafting and instead gives more time to the imagination.

I loved layering here and using the Care Free tags to serve as a fabulous focal point and message.

The Care Free Tag set is really fun when making an interactive type style card.

I created a custom pocket for the tag to slip into and accessorized with one of the coordinating stickers found in the 12×12 Care Free paper pad.  It really does not get better than that.

I love this reminder when it comes to embracing gratitude and mindfulness.

Often times one can never go wrong with a simple message of text.  I loved using alphabet dies with a Care Free pattern paper to simply spell out Thankful.  Creating does not have to complex…often simple yet profound messages such as this go further than we think.

I challenge you to try out a few of these designs. Cut files, pockets, tags and alphas are great starting points in creating beautiful hand made cards.  The patterns, colours and ambience of Care Free make the job even easier.  As always, everything shared today can be found right now at JoAnn Stores and JoAnn online.
