CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Black white and blue cardstock
  • White matte vinyl
  • Blue vinyl
  • White ink

Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Card base (blue) is standard A2 size, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Cut white mat at 4" x 5/14". The black mat (chalkboard) is 3 3/4" x 5". Ink the edges of the black with white ink and also take a sponge and with very little ink, smudge some on the cardstock to make it look like the chalkboard has been erased.
Cut the vinyl using the cut file. The settings I used on my Expression were: Pressure - low, Blade Depth - 3, Speed - med. When weeding the vinyl, it is a little tedious when you get to "Father's", because of all those small pieces. I took my craft knife and cut boxes around each letter and weeded them individually. Take your time and if the piece does not want to stick, take your finger and rub over it. After the piece has been weeded, apply transfer tape to the vinyl.
The last step is to apply the vinyl to the front of the cardstock chalkboard. When removing the transfer tape, go slow and again take your finger and rub over any stubborn pieces.
