Big Letter Mother's Day Card

When I saw this card available for free in Cricut Craft Room a while back I just knew I could make a card with it. I cut out a bunch of them to save for closer to Mother's Day. Guess what it is a freebie in CCR again right now.
I made some cuts as full cards and others I hid the card outline cut, added a card front sized rectangle and cut them that way. This is one of the ones I cut just as a card front. I placed the Mother's Day card cut on at 5 in,. put it in the rectangle and adjusted the height and width some until I got the look I wanted. You can just as easily cut the whole card and trim it to a card front size but I do like to save paper. tee hee hee.

It is hard to see in this picture but the pink circles on the pattern paper are covered with shiny, glittery goodness.

*Card base cut at 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Pattern paper card front cut at 5-3/8 x  4-1/8 in. from the gcdStudios Kathy Davis Fantasy Garden 12 x 12 pad.
*Mother's Day card front cut at 5 in from the CCR Exclusive Mother's Days Cards 06.
*Ribbon is from Spool o' Ribbon.
*Rhinestone gems are from Darice.

Thanks for visiting today.
