Using the Wild Card Cricut Cartridge
Page 55 in the manual, "F" button on the key pad, you will find the phrase I LOVE YOU, I cut it at 23". No, that's not a typo, I really had to make it that big to fit this project and no, its not really 23" in size when you cut it out. That's a weird quirk with this cartridge. IDK? You'll see I have to adjust sizes as I go on. That's why I always do a "test run".
Page 67 in the manual, "N" button on the key pad, you will find the Icon for the heart cluster using the shift key. I cut it at 5".
Page 68 in the manual, "M" button on the key pad, I cut a lower case "m" at 5".
Page 50 in the manual, "O" button on the key pad, I cut a lower case "o" at 4".
Page 45 in the manual, "R" button on the key pad, I cut a lower case "r" at 4".
Page 44 in the manual, "E" button on the key pad I cut a lower case "e" at 4".
After you get everything the way you want it, use your vinyl to cut the final pieces. Remove all excess "trash" that you don't want to transfer. While your cut piece is still on the cutting mat, cut a piece of transfer paper to fit the piece you're working with. Place the transfer paper over the piece and rub with your thumb to make sure you get a good transfer.
NOTE: While I was getting my placement for hanging, I used a piece of packing tape over the twine to hold the heart to the charger on back.
It doesn't have to be done all at once. It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!
