Masculine Birthday Card for a guy
and I removed the outer edge. once I had the sign in place in SCAL I made a copy and pasted it on top, I checked the box keep proportions, then I made it a little larger around the first one. I sent that cut file to a second page in the exact same place and deleted it from my 1st page. I typed in the word Happy Birthday with the Bradley Font. I loaded white card stock into my Cricut and changed out the blade to my new Cri-kits black gel pen. I made sure to adjust my settings to pressure 3 and speed 2. I chose cut and let my Cricut draw in the details. after it finished I hit load paper on my Cricut and changed to page 2 of my SCAL. I now had the outline to my sign only showing, I changed out the gel pen back to my cutting blade, adjusted my settings and hit cut in SCAL. I chose to make the sign white and black lettering like the old route 66 sign. It was too cool to first draw the details and then cut around it to make my own sign embellishment. I added some cute brads that look like a screw from OTC and popped the sign up on popdots and that finished of this simple masculine card front. Now for the inside...
