Ron is our milk delivery guy. Once a week he would come by and drop off our dairy order into the delivery box. At the end of the month he would send us an invoice and I would put the payment in the mail with a card. This month-end I know exactly what kind of card I will be sending in with my check.
When I first saw the Oishii SVG set, I knew that I had to make notecards out of the milk carton SVG file. The straight edges would make it super easy to make a shaped card. Using Make-the-Cut, I used the Shadow Layer tool to create the card base. To learn more about making your own shaped-card, just click on this tutorial.
I thought I would use my cricut to make the notecards but the cuts were so disappointing that I had to do a re-cut with my Silhouette. Here, take a look at the picture below.
The milk carton on the right was cut by my Cricut Expression while the one on the left was cut by my Silhouette SD. I was stunned by how poorly the Cricut machine cut. All the circles turned out to be more oval-shaped than round. I was also dissappoined that the Cricut was also not able to cut the mouth correctly. Here's a close-up:
Thankfully, the Silhouette cut so much better and after gluing down all the layers, my notecards are completed.
I think the cards look even better standing right next to The Real Thing. ;-)
Here's another view of the notecards.
