Card for Crafter
Welcome everyone I'm L.B. from Cool Beans By L.B. Can I just say that I look forward to my FANatics post day each month? I so enjoy all the work I see here and love the way Circle members came together to create this special place. With that said I want to share a card I made for a crafting friend who surprised me with a card a few weeks back.
For the card I sent back I wanted a crafting theme, so I went to my Cricut Everyday cartridge and cut out both pairs of scissors. I wanted mine to be more fun and pretty so I cut the handles using patterned paper from my leftover pieces.
Next came the card base, a simple square card cut at 5 inches and a matching lace like base from Just Because Cards. Before I put down the lace cut 100% I remembered I wanted a ribbon so I used my own scissors to hold up the space and placed the ribbon right in.
I final addition to the card was this fun sentiment stamp.
I hope she liked her card when it arrived in the mail. I know mine was such a fun snail mail surprise and it lifter my heart the day I got it. This is the season for things like that and I hope you all have wonderful holiday times over the next few weeks.
