I just have to tell you this card stumped me all week long… all week!!… I have been frozen about making this card and it has kept me from making a card all week long!!… it is the first time that I used mini monsters.. Which I love!! And I just let these little fellows get the best of me…. I do suggest that you cut a couple of these out in larger sizes to practice on, it will get it all clear in your head and be less intimidating!.. They really aren’t hard… once you make one for the first time.
This card is for my dear husband for Father’s Day…I hand did the inside to remind him of when our grown up kids were just little kids…I so hope that he loves it.
*There is now a link at the bottom of each post where you can show off your recreation of my cards… I would love it if you share your recreations with me! You can add your picture from your blog, the Cricut Message Board, or a photo storage place like Photo Bucket….Thank you so, so much for looking! Don’t forget to add your pictures!!!… that just makes me happy!!
CRICUT & GYPSY
*Cricut cuts or this card are not included because of all the welding and other changes on this card.
The word “Monsters.” its shadow cut and its layer cut cut @ w 4.59 x h 1.99...to get this measurement you will have to unlink the width and height… weld the shadow cut of the Monsters to the shadow cut of the word monster… see mat shot below.
Monster with wings and all it’s layers cut @ h 1.52..set the height and the width will be right…be sure and re-link your width and height first.
The other Monster and its layers cut @ h 1.52...set the height and the width will be right.
“our” and its shadow cut @ h 1.49 set the height and the width will be right… I welded the u and r together on the shadow first then on the letters … I welded the shadow cut of our to the phrase cut of Monsters.
Card base is 4 ¼ x 5 ½, Frame piece 4 x 5 ¼ , Background piece 3 ½ x 4 ¾… these cuts are on the inside and outsides of my cards… Sentiment piece 2 ¾ x 4 inside only….. I cut all of these with my paper trimmer.
On the Video for this card (at bottom of this post) I try to explain the layering really good…I hope it helps you!
I love sharing the instructions and files for my cards but I do ask that if you use my instructions or files to recreate my card and place it on your blog or somebody else’s blog that you give me the credit for the original design. I also ask that you do not submit my designs for publication, profit or for any contest. Thank you!
