A double layout using A Child's Year and Heritage

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • cardstock
  • foam adhesive
  • distress inks
  • embossing folder

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

I created a dusk sky with various shades of ink applied with a brayer. I used a mask to create the moon.
I cut the houses, fence and tree from Heritage. I cut the houses again in white using my Gypsy to remove the window cuts so the cut would work as a blackout.
I used gray cardstock for the concrete sidewalk and I embossed it using a brick pattern.
I cut the children in black and their shadows in white. I attached them using foam squares to give the layout dimension.
