You all have figured out that I am more of an idea person than a real crafter who finishes projects. And as an engineer, I am always on the lookout for a formula that works. Card sketches take care of layout issues, but still left me to struggle with colors. Well, I found an easy solution at the site that you will recognize as my favorite for fonts, Lettering Delights. Between playing with the Cricut Imagine and visiting the very talented Jin’s Under A Cherry Tree blog it occurred to me that the Lettering Delights graphics sets that have matching background papers can make me look talented, too. Check out three of the cards I’ve made with the same template and 3 different Lettering Delights themes.
I used my Cricut and/or Nestabilities, but you could hand cut these just as easily. I also discovered an unsung cardmaking hero on my Mac, iWork Pages, that I’ll be talking a lot more about in the future. I’m sharing the iWork template to make this drag and drop easy.
