Create a Critter
Lamb and its layers cut @ h 1.64 set the height and the width will be right on all cuts... I did leave out the second layer from the bottom..the one with the cut outs for the eyes and mouth because I wanted the lamb to be just black and white... I left out that layer and drew the face on will a Jelly Roller white pen.....on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 1/2 inches.
Scalloped circles (found on the charm option key) each cut on real dial size the large one cut @ h and w 2.91, the medium one cut @ h and w2.62, smaller one cut @ h and w 2.33... here is the trick I learned so I wouldn't have to figure out quarter inches when the cuts weren't in quarter inches... I started with the large scalloped circle at 3 inches...then I duplicated that and changed the size to 2.75 inches...then I duplicated that and changed the size to 2.5 inches... layered them on top of one another and grouped them...then I put these in the center of a rectangle the size of my background piece of paper... this you can delete before you cut.... I used the button that changes the size down until I got it the size I kept all the scalloped circles in proportion and I didn't have to do the math... then you can ungroup the scalloped circles and move them were you want them on the mat.... on the Cricut I would cut the circles at 3 inches then 2 3/4 then 2 1/2 inches all on real dial size.
Circle cut on real dial size @ 1.99 inches... on the Cricut  I would cut this at 2 inches on real dial size.
Heart cut @ w 0.65 x h 0.79...on the Cricut I would cut this at 3/4 and inch.
Plantin Schoolbook
Scalloped edge cut @ w 2.99 x h 0.44... I welded two of these together... group them then go back and change your height to 4.75 inches.. this is the height of your background piece... on the Cricut I would cut 2 of these at 1/2 an inch and trim off the part I didn't need.
Wild Card
"ewe" cut @ h 1.89...set the height and the width will be right... move the letter where they overlap a bit and weld them together... on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 3/4 inches.
 *The rest of the paper in the background I cut with my paper trimmer as follows
Frame piece cut @ 4 x 5 1/3 inches
Striped paper cut @ 3 1.4 x 3 3/4 inches
Paisley paper cut @ 1 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches
Card base is 4 1.4 x 5 1.2 inches
