Texture/Thank You Challenges

Welcome To Funky Cards
Texture/Thank You Challenges

This week at Whimsical Designs: Whimsical Wednesday Challenge, the challenge is all about texture.  Each project has to include texture of some kind.  As you will see, my cards included embossing using a Cuttlebug folder.   

This week at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog (FCCB), the challenge was to create a thank you project.  This was perfect timing for me.  I just received an order to make thank you cards for a Boy Scout who just completed his Eagle Scout project and needs to send out thank you cards.  This was a custom order and I would like to share with you today what I designed. 

I was told that since Jack is still a Boy Scout until the project is approved, the appropriate colors for these cards are olive green and gold.  Once he becomes an Eagle Scout, the colors would be red, white, and blue.  The Boy Scout emblem was designed using the Accents and Stand and Salute Cricut cartridges.

I also made some of the cards without the "thank you" leaving them as blanks.  They could then be used for any occasion.
