This is my daughter's birthday card... she and her dad are in PC Florida this week...they go together ever year... (I can't get in the sun because of my Lupus and my son is at camp all summer).. they love the beach... my son and I go to Gatlinburg ever spring break...we love the mountains. Anyway they are at the beach and Robby said Madison had been talking about sea monsters...I imagine that talk all got started because of the oil spill.. Madison's birthday is June 30th... so I knew just what kind of card I was making her this year...I so hope that she loves it!! Thank you so much for looking! Hugs, Jeannie
CRICUT & GYPSY
Sea Monster and all its layers cut @ h 2.06 set the height and the width will be right... on the Cricut I would cut this @ 2 inches.
Life is a Beach
Wave borders (3) cut @ w 3.50 x h 0.69 on real dial size! each of these borders are welded to different height rectangle cuts.... on the Cricut I would cut these @ 3/4 and inch...I would trim this do to the width I need... you may have to cut two per layer and overlap them...glue them together and trim to a width of 3 1/2 inches.
George (unlink you width and height for these cuts)
Wave Rectangles...all are cut @ w 3.50.. here are the heights for each tall wave rectangle h 2.82, medium wave rectangle h 2.61 and small wave rectangle h 2.34... cut all these cuts on real dial size.... these are each welded to the wave cuts listed above ...see mat shot... using the Cricut I would cut these with a paper trimmer... I would cut the all the rectangles at 3 1/2 inches wide... then the heights at 2 3/4, 2 1/2 and 2 inches.
George (unlink your width and height for these cuts)
Sand cut two welded oval cut @ w 1.67 x h 2.20...non welded oval cut @ w 1.40 x h 2.10. Rectangle cut @ w 3.50 x h 1.60... small rectangle on the side...not welded cut @ 3 0.30 x h 1.0 ... Using the Cricut I would cut a rectangle 3 1/2 inches x 4 inches...then I would use a wave cuter to cut the wave across the top of the cut.
Create a Critter
Happy Birthday cut @ w 2.69 x h 1.35...make sure that real dial size is not set and that your link button is yellow for this cut... on the Cricut I would cut this at 1 1/4 inch.
The bottom wave is adhered directly to the background piece...then the sea monster's tail is adhered to that... pop dot the middle wave from that...and the top wave is pop dotted from the middle wave... adhere the sand (after you have added the happy birthday, and glitter) to the top wave... adhere the sea monster's head to the water above the wave.
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.
There is now a link at the bottom of each post where you can show off your recreation of my cards… with a link back to your card on your blog, or the Cricut Message Board or a photo storage place like Photo Bucket…. I would love it if you share your recreations with me! It just makes me happy!! Thank you so, so much! Hugs
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!
