I used a cricut to cut out merry. What a PAIN!!! I'm learning what a cricut is good for and what its limitations are. I ran the letters through my xyron and the gaps were covered over in adhesive, so I dumped tons of dazzling diamonds on them and pushed the dd into all the gaps. It mostly stuck :) and makes the letters look like glitter windows. I hope this works for the colour challenge - I had no basic black so I used chocolate chip instead.
