Had a creative morning. Made six of these thank you notes. I had my Wishblade and Cricut cutting at the same time. I created the card from the Joys of the Season cartridge. Used the card feature and the holly cut at 5". Can I say that I think the card feature is my favorite of all of the features! I combined the card with a title from VIsual Designs by Chris. #CD00177 is Thanksgiving Titles 2 but I just used the "THANKS" part of the title:
I colored the holly with Copics YG03 and YG63. Added two lighter and one dark jewel. I used 2" and 2 1/2" circles to create the red around the holly circle. Cutting the 2" first and then the 2 1/2". The depth of the punches would not allow a perfect circle in a circle but I decided I liked the offset look better anyway. It looks as if it layers behind but actually lays right on top. It still needed a little something so I cut a 2 1/2 circle from black diamond dust and backed it from the inside. This led me to cut the title in black. Added a sheer green ribbon. I didn't recognize the clearance tag so not sure where I got it. Be sure to burn the edges of the ribbon after tying so they don't fray.
Here's a tip: I cut the title on heavier cardstock and only at 3/4". I didn't want to cut too many times to mangle it - the Wishblade has a tendency to do that on me - so I cut it and then sanded the back of it lightly and it helped to separate the lettering from the background a little more cleanly.
~I am blessed!!~
