I admit that this is not my original idea exactly. I have seen this idea of using the whol alphabet and highlighting various letters to make a word on Blogs, Pinterest and Commercially designed cards. But I love that idea and wanted to try it myself. You should try it my friends. I know you have lots of fonts!
The shake is cut from Cricut Cartridge Nifty Fifties and is a quick easy layered design. It already has a little striped straw on the design. I just cut a small piece of a black and white striped straw to pick up on the black letters I used for the word hi.
The letters are from MyCreativeTime Lowercase Letter Dies that were released last month. I cut them 3 times for this project. Once in solid red, once in black and once in the red and white striped. I used the solid red for my template. Next time I think I will set the letters up by hand since they are 1. not in straight rows and 2. not in order!! I didn't even notice that until I was working on this. I strategically placed my die cut on the letters that were out of order and flipped upside down! If I didn't tell you...you couldn't tell.
