Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut a 8.5" x 5.5" piece of black cardstock. Score in half along the 8.5" length and fold to create an A2 size card base that measure 4.25" x 5.5".
Resize a rectangle from Cricut Craft Room Basics to measure 4" x 5.25" and flood fill the rectangle with the large blue striped pattern from the Imagine cartridge Buccaneer. Create a second rectangle measuring 3.75" x 5" and flood fill it with the small red striped pattern from the Buccaneer cartridge. Distress the edges with black soot ink and layer onto the black card base adding the blue striped layer first then the red striped layer.
Cut your TNT barrel, canon, and banner as combined images. Cut the pirate with his layers separated. I then inked all my edges with a black marker so that the white core would not show (optional).
Stamp your sentiment on to the banner and add it to the layered base first. Next, add the cannon and then the pirate on top of it. Use pop dots to add the pirates layers and on to the barrel so that it appears to be in the forefront.
I added a small dab of gold stickels to the center of the barrel wick. And there you have it. A quick, easy, and unusual 4th of July celebration card.
