We love to use the Cricut Craft room to make "backers" for the cards. See the scallop edge background on the front of the card? Using solid paper and then creating texture with the Cuttlebug is one way to make the front of the card "pop". Or you can use a paper with a design - as we did here- to make an interesting background for the feature piece. I use the craft room to make different sizes for the "backers" and then we cut a lot at a time. When it is time to create a card, it is fun to pick out which backer to use. It also helps add dimension to the design.
