Hello Baby Card

Hi fellow scrappers.  This is Erika from http://EKittyScraps.blogspot.com.  Sorry for the late post but I was very under the weather yesterday.  The card I made is for a friends' baby shower.  The baby's room is going to decorated in Hello Kitty since she is having a baby girl.  


I did not have the Hello Kitty cricut cartridge (rare- hard to find and not on cricut craftroom), I cut out the Hello Kitty image from a coloring book.  I colored the Kitty with copic markers and used distress markers on the bear.  I also added black eyelashes to the Kitty's eyes.  Next I used my Cricut Expression and cut out Hello Baby at .50 inches on fuschia paper using the Artiste Cartridge.  I used my Martha Stewart Scallop Dot Edge punch on the pink paper and assembled my card.  I added two of Mrs. Grossman's baby safety pin stickers to my card and I was finished.  (Note: please ignore fuschia paper scrap on the kitty-I noticed this in the photo after the baby shower).

Supplies Used
Cricut Expression
Artiste Cartridge for font at .50 inches
Hello Kitty image from coloring book
Copic Markers
Tim Holtz Distress Markers
Martha Stewart Scallop Dot Edge Punch
Mrs. Grossman baby safety pin stickers
Pink and Yellow Doodlebug paper
Bazzill Basics Paper-Pirouette (fuschia)

Thanks for stopping by the Cricut Fanatics blog and have a good month!

    1. I was trying to hint that Cricut needs to bring this cart back! At least as a digital cart. Hopefully they will at some point. Thanks Barbara.

  2. K.I.T.T.Y Hello Kitty!!! I have so much trouble cutting letters that small. Any tips? I have the Hello Kitty cart.I love the font on it and the cute images of her. You sure fooled me, great coloring. My girls loved Hello Kitty when they were younger. I found the cart at AC Moore $20 about 4 years ago. It's a keeper. I can make you a Kitty or 2. malou2u@yahoo.com

    1. Malou22u-Here are some font tips. You can use the Shadow or Blackout feature to make your letters a little bulkier and easier to cut. If you also want a shadow behind the letter, you can make it a size larger. Some font carts seem to be better than others for smaller fonts. You can try changing your blade and speed settings also. My Expression was set on Medium speed and 4 for the blade setting for the .50 inch font. Use cardstock and not thin paper. Hope this helps you. :)
