3 Princesses


So I had to make a 3rd card and this one was cut at 9.5" but the tail is big so the resulting card ended up a tad bigger than the first 2 cards. 


The mermaid card is dressed up with stickles glitter and adhesive-backed pearls are applied on her necklace. Here is another picture of her that shows the glitter on her tail a little better:

 


So here they are- all three princesses together:

  2. Thanks Vanessa, *BJ*, DtsArt, and Brens Designs. :) I literally gasp when I first saw the handbook online. I had to have this and it is definitely one of my favorite cartridges.

  3. I love these! I am just a newbie and bought the cartridge. I would love to make this for my daughter. Could you give me brief instuctions on how. eg is the card attached to just the shadow of the doll? I can easily follow directions but get lost when I look at something as amazing as this. anyhelp would be appreciated from yourself or anyone!

  4. I had a muck around and navigated through most... Just 2 questions. How did you join the 2 cards together? Did you use the cricut software to cut them out? and the other question is.... I stugled to find the eyebrows of the black haired girl... can you tell me where they were. I just used the shift feature and pressed stop once the eyebrows cut... surely this is not the correct way... Sorry if this sounds like silly questions but I couldn;t find the eyebrows anywhere and even though mine turned out gorgeous, my wand did not sit up anywher like yours did.

  5. Hi Tracey,
    I used Cricut Design Studio (software) when I made these cards. I used the "weld" feature to join all the shadows together to form the base. The black-haired girl is doll2 SHIFT. I cut out the whole image on beige cardstock and then layer that over a black base. Does that make sense? If not, let me know and I will try to explain it another way.

    If you have more questions, just ask away. I'll try my best to help. :-)

  6. Thx Jin,
    I think I understand and did make one last night! can you tell me do you mean! join together in the software program and them cut with cricut. Then cut with beige paper and then cut hair with black.

    my profile is of the one I did. (not nearly as neat as yours but my first cricut project)

    Can you tell me where the eyelashes are! I can't find them anywhere except if I print a whole doll out of black and then press stop after the eyelashes have cut before it gets to cutting the rest of the doll.

    I hope this makes sence! I really appreciate you patience.
    Tracey

  8. Hi Tracey,
    Let's try this again... So, I cut the doll2 SHIFT image out on beige cardstock. Then I cut the doll2 (no Shift) image on black cardstock. Since I already had a card base that I made from welding in DS, I snip off the body of this black cutout and keep just the head portion. Then I take the first beige cutout and glue it over the black (head) piece and then glue the whole piece down on the card base. Clear as mud? Let me know if I've confused you again. :-p
