So I decided to use my Sketch Pens (without a doubt my favourite tool to use with my Silhouette) and make a border of kisses and to write the journaling (I used Hello Sunshine sketch font for these).
I then used Scrappy Stencil font to write my title, cut it out and backfilled with gold card.
Next I welded the word 'GOLD' to the scalloped shape and resized this and the medal shape. I cut out the scallop and medal from gold card.
At this point I must point out that the only card I had was cheap card from The Range and it didn't cut out very well - a reflection on the quality of card and not the cutting expertise of my machine.
I backed the scalloped shape with black and attached it to the medal with foam pads and made a 'ribbon' with two pieces of patterned paper.
I finally drew a black line around the outside of my page with a ruler and a pen - not as successful as I would have hoped.
Do I like the end result? I do but think it could be improved.
The DOTW is free until next Tuesday 16th August.
