Check This Out!

I just love these backgrounds on my cards!  They help make quick and easy cards after they are cut out.  All you have to do is add a sentiment and you are done!

The original file size was 6"x6" and I shrunk it to 4"x5-1/4" for a card front without much distortion.  The circles are more oval now but I did not have any problem cutting it.  Then I added a shadow to it so that I could mat the background onto something.  I love this color on the black!  I think it looks really sharp!
