Faith Cards

I wanted to make a few encouraging cards for a friend and got to use the lovely Pink By Design stamp set called Faith. The different fonts in this set are great too. I used a couple of Cricut cartridges for my cards and really like how they came out. Here's what I did.

For the butterfly card I used the Sentimentals cartridge. I love the butterfly on this cart and cut it at 2". I also cut my card base so that it had a decrative edge using the card feature on pg. 71 and cutting it at 4 1/2" so that it would fit into a normal envelope. This cut makes a square card which is a nice change. I embossed the butterfly with my Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots embossing folder and used a Sakura Clear Star gelly roll pen to give it a little shine.

For my flourished bird card I used the Give a Hoot cartridge and cut the bird at 2 3/4" and the flourish at 1". It's nice how quickly a card can come together with just a couple of really pretty cuts.

Be sure to stop by the Scrapbook Pal store, and don't forget, they offer FREE shipping on all orders of only $25.00 or more! Thanks for stopping by:)
