Happily Ever After Blog Hop – Cricut Imagine Printed Vinyl Horse & Carriage

Printable Vinyl Horse and Carriage

I spent time (like many people) watching the Royal Wedding last Friday.  The best part of it?  Watching it with my daughter!! 🙂  So, here is my Royal Wedding horse and carriage made of out printable vinyl using my Cricut Imagine.  I have to say, my horse is cooler than any I saw in the actual wedding.  Whaddya think? 😀

I used the Formal Occasions Cricut cartridge for the horse and carriage.  Using my Cricut Imagine and the Imagine Audrey art cartridge, I was able to color plain white printable vinyl with pattern and color.  It was perfect for me because I didn’t have the exact colors I wanted to use.

You can see all of the things that we’ll be printing and cutting out.

Everything is cut at 3 1/2″.  I’m using Cricut Imagine Printable Vinyl.  Want to know more about using vinyl?  Check out my Cricut Vinylology DVD! 😀

Next I’ll weed the vinyl and then layer it.  By the way, it’s advisable to use a cutting mat when using a craft knife, unless you’d like to cut directly into your table.  Not that I’d know anything about that. 😛  Uh…that table is no longer scratch free.

Those printed layers are so pretty I hate to cover them up, but I must.

It’s looking good!  One layer left and we’re all done.  Did you notice that I had to pull the blue seat back up so I could lay down the horse?  Yep.  It was getting late and Super Joy was super sleepy.  LOL!

Ta Da!  All finished.  You can stick your vinyl to lots of things.  I put mine on the door in my new craft space. 😀

    1. Hey CardMonkey/Ellen,
      I’m still moving into my new space. Well, I guess I’m pretty much in it now, but I’m just beginning to figure out how I want to set it up. 😉 Today I did something totally un-craft related to it. I switched out the door handles. 🙂 I’m taking photos along the way so I can share them when I have more done. 😉
