First Degree Blackbelt

A good friend's 11 year old son just had his taekwondo black belt graduation last Saturday so I made him a card to help celebrate this milestone.  We are so proud of this sweet boy!  This card was 5.5 x 5.5.  I seem to be liking this size card lately since I can put more Cricut cuts in it. 

The martial arts image was from Car Decals cart.  I added a small strip of white cardstock to highlight the first degree strip on his black belt as you can see here.

The blue background was embossed with one of the Asian Bundle CB folders (I think it was called Lanterns) and I just added faux stitching around with white Sakura gel pen.  I used the same pen to doodle on the "Ayah!" (Lyrical Letters cart) to make it stand out a bit.

The wood cut was from Old West cart and embossed with Branches CB folder and inked and then cut in half in zigzag fashion via scissors to simulate a board broken in half.

Here's a pic of the inside, "Way to go!" sentiment was cut using 3 Birds on Parade cart.

Simple envelope was cut using Sweethearts cart.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful week!
