By the Numbers


I confess.  I have a Thicker addiction.

Back when I got my Cricut my plan was to cut all my own letters.  Up until then I'd mostly printed my titles from the computer along with the journaling.  I didn't use stickers very much.  Then I discovered Thickers and well, the poor Cricut sits dormant much of the time.  I do use it, just not for alphas.

However there are some Thickers that are as languished as my poor Cricut - the numbers.  I almost never use numbers on a layout other than the date. Typically I keep the date small.  So here is how I've used up a few of those number Thickers for special date based cards.

The top one is for a 30th anniversary.  To get the 'th' I just inked those letters with a marker from a word stamp such as from the word 'the' or 'birthday.'

The floral design is embossed and colored with distress inks and a blender pen.


For this card, I tried a monochromatic color scheme.  The truck is stamped on vellum.  The 'th' in this case are regular stickers from Crate Paper.

I could also see using the numbers to print out the year.

Do you have a special use for all the number Thickers?

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Lovely cards, I especially like the embossing! I also neglect my number stickers, so this is a great idea for using them. I bought my Slice thinking I would custom cut all my titles, which I rarely do. It's Thickers all the way!
