Thank You Scouts and Beavers!

At the end of last season, we gave our Scout and Beaver leaders some Thank You cards for all they did.  This year I was approached to make some Thank You cards that they could give out to sponsors, guest speakers, and outing hosts as thanks from the kids.  These are what I came up with, and both are based on their respective logos, which I've included below, for those of you that are not familiar with Canadian Scouting. 

I converted a .jpg into a .svg file in Inkscape (free download here), and imported it into my SCAL software and cut.  Each card is a standard A2 size.  I bundled up a dozen of each with some matching ribbon and gave them to the leaders at the beginning of the year. 

The campfire and tri-pod are pop-dotted and raised on the Scouts card to add dimension. The background is scanned from an old camping/Scouting page I had in my stash (my bad for not taking down the info first) and printed on white Bazzill for effect. Simply says "Thanks" on the inside.  The letters were also cut using SCAL, with the Mickey Font.  Not the Mickey Font cartridge, but Mickey Font, the True Type Font downloaded to my computer.  I arranged and welded the letters in SCAL and cut to fit on the card vertically.

I raised the beaver on the front of the Beavers card with pop-dots. Inside says "Merci".  (I had to PhotoShop out some personal information on the inside of the Beaver card, so there's a smudge in the middle of the photo.)  "Merci" was cut with the Beyond Birthdays cartridge.

And here are the logos that I worked with to create the .svg that I cut with:

Happy buggin'!
