Mane Attraction Cricut Layout

Good morning everyone,

Here is my project for this week's Fantabulous Cricut Challenge. Our challenge this week was Zoo themed. I used the lion from Everyday Paper Dolls and the "Mane" letters are from Sesame Street Font.

Here is a closeup of the lion. I modified him in my Gypsy with the Hide Contour feature. This way I was able to give him my facial features.
Closeup of the title block. I created the background title block Word Art and then cut the "Mane" letters from my Cricut. I popped up a couple of the letters with foam dots for extra dimension.

I used the following Cricut Cartridges:
  • Everyday Paper Dolls: The Lion
  • Sesame Street Font: Cut the "MANE" letters @ 1.75" all upper case.
I did modify the lion in my Gypsy. I am still really "green" with my Gypsy, so bear with me as I learn too! But I did the "hide contour" feature and then cut him out twice in two different colors of cardstock. Then I cut the "inner lion" part out of the one and layered him onto the "mane" part.

If you would like the Gypsy file click to download: HERE

Reminder: You must have the Gypsy and the Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridge in order to cut this file out on your Cricut.

This is a pdf file that you will print and cut.
