I used the digital Cricut cartridge called Easter Blessings ($9.99 for these images):
Here's how I layered the vinyl:
First I laid out the images on the Cricut Craft Room mat as I wanted them to go on the car. Then, I separated the layers for easy vinyl placement.
Above, I have the shadows laid out as they will go on the car. I will layer everything onto these shadow pieces and then apply that in one giant piece to the car.
Once I cut the layers, I used the tool above to pick out all the bits and pieces.
Then, using the scraper, I burnished on the transfer tape.
Now, we are moving this white writing onto the shadow.
I carefully peel the backing off the vinyl so the whole word art is now on the transfer tape.
Then, very, very carefully, I lay the white layer onto the shadow. I burnish it again to get a good seal.
I do this again for the flowered section (much trickier). Rip off a small piece of transfer tape to do the flowers as they do not line up with the base layer. You will have to transfer them one by one.
Got that one on!
Now we finish all the flower layers and we are going to add the whole thing to the shadow layer.
Again, burnish that on with the scraper.
Here it is all together! Now to add transfer tape to this and bring it out to the car.
Here it is going on the car back window.
It was hard to get a good picture of this so that's why so many views. It was starting to get grey outside and next thing you know, we had all kinds of tornado sirens and touchdowns in Dallas. I had finished this project and raced to the Walmart supermarket for "one more thing"before the storm and I got stuck in there during one of the siren warnings. They shooed us to the back of the supermarket and we waited it out. At the "all clear", I rushed home only to go through sirens 4 more times. Thankfully, we were ok and I was able to get my kids from school, where they had been in weather lockdown, with little trouble.
It's a good thing I didn't wait to the very last minute to make this, like I've been known to do...LOL!
