The new Disney Pixar Toy Story Cricut cartridge has a whole set of word art and icons that are just fabulous! The star and "Hey Howdy Hey" are both cut using the Icon Feature Key.
"Hey Howdy Hey" was cut at 3". I wouldn't cut it any smaller as the "y" has one really skinny section that doesn't want to cut out too well. This is a layered cut and requires patience, the pen tip Zip two way glue pen and Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive glue, and the Tweezer Bees tweezers. That red outline around the "Howdy" section took some intense concentration and careful placement.
The star was also cut at 3" but I didn't use all the layers. There is another top layer that has some very fine sections. Since I knew I was going to be layering this with the word art, I didn't bother but instead inked it up and drew in the contour lines with pen. If you are going to cut the star, cut it BIG if you want to use all the layers.
To assemble to star and "Hey Howdy Hey", I mounted the whole thing on cream colored cardstock and then trimmed it up. I inked the edges roughly to give it a worn look and then mounted it on some Michael Miller cowboy paper. I used decorative brads to hold it together. Finally, I mounted that onto an 8" x 8" piece of red cardstock which was folded in half.
The final card size is 4" x 8", not standard, so I do still need to make a matching envelope OR you could cut down a business sized envelope and make it like a pocket envelope (only if you weren't going to mail it).
I added some more to the inside to finish off the card. I tied some twine along the top edge to add texture.
