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. 😉

  19. I love how you can put a regular cricut cartridge AND imagine cartridge to make your cut whatever colors you want, the cartridges are just too cool! You’re project is so cool too! I love that black horse!
    God Bless,
