Miss You - City

Created for Operation Write Home

A2 sized card = 5.5" x 4.25".

Mat 1 (blue) = 5 5/8" x 4 3/8".   Blue mat has been embossed using Paper Studio "Tiny Stars" folder.

City = cut to length at 5.25" from Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge; <suprby><Accessories 3> on page 56 of folder.  

City was cut twice.   Once as listed above in dark blue.   Second time was cut in yellow with window cuts turned off.   Use either Cricut Craft Room or Gypsy to turn contours off.

Message bubble = image from basic cuts within Cricut Craft Room (free image).   I changed the image size to fit my sentiment (2.5" wide by 1.5" height.)

Sentiment "Miss You" = TPC Studio "Greetings" stamp set.   Stamp color is Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

All images have their edges inked with Tim Holtz Blue Jeans Distress Ink.

The message bubble image is mounted with foam tape.
