Name Card - Using Making Memories Slice Elite

My regular blog readers will know that i normally make my "name" cards using my cricut, but since i have just got my replacemnt Slice Elite I thought ohhh I wont faff about setting my cricut up ill do it on my slice!
I am still getting used to the sizes so I cut it from scrap paper first and laid it out on my card blank (which is A4 folded lengthways)

The patterned paper is a thick glittered paper called "stomp" from MME it has so lovely blokey papers in that stack with some dinosaurs thrown in for good measure!

I inked the edges of all of the letters but am a little new to this inking lark and should have inked more as it did fade a little but it looked nice as the ink does not stick to the glossy glittered bits so looked really nice!

The corners were finished with some card candy that i got in a craftworks cards kit from the NEC

I always stick my letters on with 3d pads to give a bit of dimension!
I have since got the just chillin card for my slice so i think i may add a little something to this card!

I really like a nice simple font, these were cut a 31/2 inches i think but look nice and were lovely clean cuts!
