Fairy Card for Through the Craft Room Door Weekly Challenge

It's time for a new challenge at Through the Craft Room Door! As always the theme is anything goes. Our sponsor this week is Fitztown. The winner of the challenge gets 3 images, the opportunity to be a guest designer and their card/project published in the next issue of TTCRD.

I chose to use Fitztown Fae38. This is such a beautiful image. I printed her using the Print and Cut feature on my Cricut Explore. I wanted to color the fairy before I cut her out with my Cricut. Sometimes it takes me a couple days to finish coloring an image because I do it in between other tasks. As far as I know there is no cut later option.  You are supposed to take your project strait from your printer and put it in your Cricut. I found a way around this! I sided the image in Design Space, saved my project, printed the fairy out and then colored her. When I was ready to have my Cricut cut her out I opened my project in Design Space, took all the paper out of my printer, went back DS and told it to print another copy. It does not realize that my printer has no paper...it thinks it's printing a new cut which allows me to cut out an old project. 

Aren't these red roses beautiful!?! I made them with a file from The Cutting Cafe. These 3D Flowers are my absolute favorite! Regina, the owner, has a video to show you how to put the flowers together. It's super simple.
