Cricut Ball Jar card

Cricut Ball Jar card
Fancy Card Friday
Hello, friends!

I hope you have all had a great week! Tomorrow is the fourth, so I wish you all a fun and safe holiday!

Today, I have a card made using the Spring Fling cartridge. This is another one of those projects that is made using the cricut pens. I really love the look of this and it is so much easier to do than you might expect. 

The sentiment is made using two different free fonts I found online and the slice feature. They are called  Claire Hand and Clicker Script. Click here to download Claire Hand for free and here to download Clicker Script for free.

Using the slice feature makes using small fonts so much easier than cutting them out as words. All you have to do is add the inside of the letters. The best part is they are always perfectly lined up as well!

If you have a Cricut Explore, here is the file: Cricut Ball Jar card

If you do not have an Explore, here are the sizes:
flowers - 3 1/2"
jar - 2 1/4"
'hope you have a' - 3/4"
'ball' - 3/4"

Darling card, Melanie.....and it would make a great video tutorial to show us how you did the font using the slice feature on this specific card. Hope your dogs are doing better today and have a safe and fun 4th!!!

I love this card! Thanks for sharing your tip to use the slice feature instead of gluing down small letters. Can't wait to try this technique. Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend!
