Cricut Expression 2 Car Vinyl Football Player

Let’s get ready for football!  (Curious about the singing heart?  I made that here.)

Today I’m making a 6″ vinyl football player for a friend.  She wanted this image from the Cricut Expression 2’s Decals cartridge, but she doesn’t have a CE2.  This is one of the cartridges that comes pre-loaded on the CE2, so I’m happy to help her out. 🙂  If you like these little stick figure guys and don’t have a CE2, look online for the recently discontinued Cricut Car Decals Cartridge .  It’s not exactly the same, but it is close.

Need vinyl?  I like to buy mine from Expressions Vinyl.

Here’s the screen of the CE2.  I love that it shows exactly where it will cut on the mat.  The CE2 has preset vinyl settings, but they are wrong.  I use the same settings I teach you in my Cricut Vinylology DVD.  They work great!

I’m using a white outdoor vinyl that I purchased from Expressions Vinyl.com.

There’s our little football player all weeded and covered in transfer tape.  Now he’s ready for shipment to my friend as well as being prepared for adhering to her car.  YAY!
