Card with Lettering Delights DB Floragraphy font.

I've been wanting to create some cards with the DB Floragraphy font from Lettering Delights for a while. I needed to make some cards for a co-worker so I finally got around to designing some cards.
I wanted to make these without micro-managing the alignment for print and cut so I used a 0.125 shadow (1/8") around each shape and then just placed it on my mat and cut on my Cricut. It worked great! No worry about getting it aligned just right, there is enough fudge in the design that it cuts right on! 

Here is a screen shot of the design (with shadow, I checked "outline shapes" so you could see the shadow - be sure to un-check it before printing). I used textures from the Love is Sweet Background Paper Set (from LD of course and on sale right now!)  The font for "Missing you..." is LD Cotton Candy (also on sale).

Here is what it looked like after printing....

I'm ready for the tutorial - I have the paper and the font purchased and ready to go!! Especially interested in knowing how you converted the paper to texture and how you trimmed the flower. This is great stuff!!

Nelda said...

2Kuties, I now have the tutorial posted but could not contact you since you did not leave a means to do so. I also posted a tutorial on how to convert the paper to textures.

Quick question - what is the name and model of your printer.

Nelda said...

Anon - I use Canon printers, I think this was done with the Canon iP3000 (I know it is an older printer but it does great!).

Paper makes a HUGE difference on how the colors pop - check out the post "Paper, paper, and more paper" that I did in January.
