CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Glossy Accents
  • 3D foam dots
  • White cardstock by American Crafts

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Using a piece of white cardstock that measures 5.75" x 11.5", fold in half to get a square card measuring 5.75" x 5.75". Print the background at 5" using Nursery Tails. The blue cardstock is a 5.25" square and the green is 5.5", both colors printed from the Nursery Tails cartridge.
The sentiment is computer generated. I first printed it on a piece of plain paper, then laid my printed background over top. Holding both pieces up to a light, I moved my background pieced until the sentiment lined up where I wanted it. Then I lightly held the background piece to the piece of plain paper with small pieces of painter's tape and ran both pieces back through the printer.
Cut the fox at 2.5". I hid the circles for the eyes in CCR and added dots of paint to make the eyes. Chalk the edges of the fox to add some definition. Use Glossy Accents on the lenses of the binoculars. Attach the fox to the card with 3D foam dots.
