Card Fronts

Here are some pictures of card fronts I have made for swaps over on the Cricut MB.

For this swap, the card had to contain a butterfly.  I designed this on my Gypsy with the Mother's Day (the background) and Gyprsy Wanderings (the butterfly) carts.  I love the lacey look of the backgroud.  I am going to have to look at the file on the Gypsy to see where I got the label and Thanks from.  I cut the butterfly's shadow from vellum and stickled the edges with Diamond Stickles and the placed the detailed cut on top and sorta of curled the wings with a pencil to give it a more three dimensional look.  (If anyone wants this file, let me know and I will have to email it to you).  This is one of my favorite cards I have made.  I love that I have it on my Gypsy because if I want to use it for a different occasion all i have to do is pull it up and change the sentiment.  I think the possibilities for this one is endless because it would be great for congratulations, deepest sympathy, thinking of you, etc.

This is the first one I made for the swap and you had to have an embossed item on your card.  I used the Moraccan Screen Cuttlebug folder on various color core black magic paper and sanded it to show the embossing then used my ribbon punch and threaded ribbon through to match the color core of the paper.  Next I pop dotted the flowers. 


There are two more card fronts due for this swap, one for September and one for October.  I love having these on hand because you can put them on a card you have or make your own out of cardstock and you have a card ready to go.  They are great for the forgotten or last minute occasions.
