The Everything ABC's Blog Hop Letter B
Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!
For this hop we will be featuring the letter B. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their B element will be featured in their post.
My project features the "B"at from the Cricut Artiste cartridge.
It was a little strange to be working on Halloween projects in January but a customer requested that I make some cards for her and here they are.
I used an older paper pack called "Hooligans" from Close to my Heart. I cut out the bats on black card stock and used the <fit to page> function. It cut them out at 5 1/2" each and I got two out of a 12x12 sheet. I then cut out the bats on patterned paper at the same dimensions. I cut the wings off of each patterned paper bat and flipped the paper on the other side to show the complementary pattern. That is what I love about Close to my Heart products, they all complement each other!
I scores the bats along the pre-cut score marks done by the Cricut!
I then cut out the "Boo" sentiment on green card stock from the same paper pack using the Artiste cartridge at 1 1/2". I then used adhesive to attach all the pieces. The card folds closed to sit inside a standard card envelope.
