'Thank You' speech bubble - free Silhouette cut file

thank you speech bubble card

Just a simple little card made with my favourite digital paper of all time. The hearts & the speech bubble sentiment were cut using my Silhouette machine. Which I think I'm finally getting the hang of... :-) (I've found that slowing the speed down a little helps to get clean cuts, so that's great!)

To jazz up the hearts, I used this Hero Arts Flower Corsage stamp (embossed in white on the big yellow heart), this Tim Holtz Reflections Words text stamp (on the little yellow heart on tracing paper), silver & white pens, distress inks in oranges & yellow, and this flower vine paper freebie...

free cut file

Sometimes the best cutting files seem to be the most basic ones. I thought 
I'd share this one in case anyone else wants to cut it with their Silhouette:

It's designed so that all of the centers of the letters stay in the cut piece
(so that the only fussy-to-glue piece is the bit in the tail of the letter 'y')

 The solid-shaped piece of the cut file (on top) is sized to fit behind the 
word bubble so that you can add whatever colour to the letters you like.

You could change the text or just use the plain speech bubble of course.



This digital work is offered up for free, but mainly for personal use or handmade sale items only.

Happy Weekend,

Thank you so much for sharing. Such pretty paper. I love the thank you bubble.
A year or so ago I printed a paper that had just the thin branches, similar to the ones you have here. I am unable to find where I found it but am wondering if by any chance you had posted it?

That is brilliant to design it so the inside of the letters stick with the word! I will have to remember that when working with text. Thanks for the cute freebie!
