CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • black card stock
  • yellow card stock
  • black ink for edges
  • embossing folder for the moon
  • foam to pop up the wolf

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Start with a 5 x 6 1/2" card and the Southwest Cricut cartridge.
Cut the wolf and the moon from the Southwest cartridge at 4" Emboss the yellow moon with a folder that looks like craters and attach the the black wolf. Once the layers are assembled attach them to the front of the card with foam squares so they are raised.
Cut the letters for the front of the card at 1.1. Do the font in black & the font shadow in yellow. Attach them to the right of the wolf.
Using yellow card stock, cut the moon at 2.8 and the kokopelli shadow at 2.5. Overlap and weld them as shown. Use a black ink to shade the edges and facial features of the moon, then cut the kokopelli at 2.5 out of black card stock and attach him to the moon and shadow. Attach them to the inside left of the card.
Cut the first two lines of text using the Southwest font and black card stock. Use .8 and fit the first line inside the crescent moon. Attach the second line so it slightly overlaps the bottom edge of the moon.
Using the A Child's Year Cartridge at a .8 setting, add the letters one at a time using the craft room program to stagger and tilt the letters. Reduce your spacing so they become one word. Cut and attach to your card. Use your black ink to shade all the edges of the card.
