Bank Block

It has been awhile since I have posted or been able to craft anything. A friend of mine at work had a baby in July and I have been wanting to make something for her.  Well I had all these blocks I stocked up on after Christmas when they were on clearance.  So I decorated one of the blocks for a bank.  That it is the great thing about these blocks, they came with different plugs with them.

I decided to do something different and ectch on them first to give them a frosted look. I taped the edges off to make it more squared off.

Here is what it looked like after doing the etching.
Here is the final block.  I used pink vinyl for her name and using the Cricut American Alphabet to cut everything out on the Cricut2.  I really liked these letters because they looked very elegant.  Then I used the printable vinyl on the imagine using the Nursery Tails Cartridge for the Butterfly Kisses layered and used silver vinyl behind it to make it stand out more.

Thanks for looking!!
