Hello Lovely

This week, Color My Heart's challenge uses the colors from the "Hello Lovely" paper pack by CTMH.  Heart2Heart featured the same paper a couple weeks ago, so I'm entering this card in both.


This was really easy to do. I cut the floral overlay from Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge, laid it on my card base at a wonky angle, turned the card over and drew pencil lines along the back where the overlay hung over the edge of the card base, and cut it to size. I then backed it with Hello Lovely paper and glued the whole thing to my card base. I attached a Blush Shimmer Ribbon bow, and DONE!

One of the great things in Design Space is the "Set Canvas" feature. I set my canvas as a card, then stretched and tilted my overlay until I liked the amount of space it took up on the card.  The overlay piece ended up being 6.29H x 4.19W.  The only other trick I used was to "Ungroup" the overlay image (the original image comes with two layers, the floral and a solid backing) and delete the solid piece. You could cut your background (in this case, the Hello Lovely paper) using the Cricut, but that wastes too much paper for me.  I'm okay with wasting the white paper (floral overlay), but I'm hoarding the Hello Lovely paper.

I really love this card. I have a feeling it will be mass produced as it can be used for just about any occasion...as long as it's going to a woman.  Somehow, I don't think a man would be quite as in love with this. LOL!

Until next time,
Becca
