"B" is for Boy - Cricut Lite
This card is for a card swap for my next crop at my church. I used Lyrical Letters to make the label shape in the background and used the hide contour feature to hide the oval cut-out in the center. The scrollwork is from LL also. The flower, however is from "B" is for Boy Cricut Lite cartridge. I love this one! I needed some boy cuts to do pages for my son.
I used K and Company paper along with some generic cream colored cardstock that I cut in half for the card. I pop-dotted the flower and printed the sentiment on my computer. I'm getting to a place where printing sentiments for cards en masse is so much easier on my compu-ta-ter.
Once again, I digress. Anyway, I used a slightly darker cream cardstock for the inside and cut more scrolls for the inside to give it some pop. I've found that I need to give some weight to the inside of my cards in order to balance the card.
Anyway, it's not my usual card, but I like the slightly more formal nature of this one.
I've got to get my stuff ready for the crop this weekend. Yikes!!! Got to go . . .
I like scrapbooking, cardmaking, sewing, and scuba diving. My life revolves around my God, family, close friends, and my work. Because I have a life outside of my work and home, I don't always post as regularly as I should because life gets in the way. I deeply appreciate anyone that comes this way and I hope that you will pop in for a visit every now and then. Cheers and happy crafting!

She is a cheerful sprite.
She lives where fireflies mate and breed.
She is only seen on midsummer's eve.
Her dresses glow with fiery colours. She has delicate green wings like a cicada.
