These cards are very simple. I tend to use clean lines when designing. I made these a-year-and-a-half ago (before I purchased my Big Shot). If I were re-doing these, I would probably add a little texture to the mats underneath the circles. The C in congratulations is puched with 2 different punches. After stamping in Not Quite Navy, I punched out the entire image and then punched out the inside. The notch was cut free-hand.
