One of the major benefits of the Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) software from Craftedge is the ability to cut out any character from a true type font on your computer. Most fonts are True Type. And there are many available to download for free. I downloaded the Floralia font from dafont.com because of the beautiful intricate images of each charcter..
This card front is cut using only one charcter of that font enlarged to 3 3/4" x 5". I used a thick designer paper from My Mind's Eye that was in my scrap bin. I had enough to cut out the design and use the other side of the paper for the backing to peak through. A couple of embellishments and a little ink distressing on the edges and it was all done. Plus I have the cut out designs left I can use on a layout or card.
These character fonts are called ding bats but whoever creates them is pretty smart and generous.
