Wizard of Oz Party pt.1

This card is something I dreamed up & knew I just HAD to make. I Googled for a silhouette of Dorothy of The Wizard of Oz as my base. I had a harder time than I expected finding something I liked so I ended up buying an image from an Etsy (tomkatstudio) shop.

I removed the round border (since I only wanted Dorothy) & printed my image onto vellum paper.

Next, I pulled out my Cricut Expression2 (that I got for Christmas & I’ve been playing with it, learning how to use it, what I do & don’t like about it). I synced up to the Cricut craft room & opened the Cricut Essentials. I opened frame 1 & removed the outer frame. 

I cut the oval on some awesome blue gingham cardstock; glued the vellum image to show in the window I just cut; added some glittery red ribbon & glued the whole thing to a card blank.

I was so happy with the results I decided to do a Wizard of Oz party for my daughter Taryn who’ll be 4 in a couple of months. She loves the movie & often asks to watch just like her big sister Tori did when she little. We still have it on VHS!

Next I made a banner (with my Cricut Expression2 once again). I cut floral edged circles in white & gingham then layered them and added red glitter letters to spell out Taryn. I finished it off with alternating red & baby blue picot ribbon. (sorry for the glare, I suck at taking pics!) On a side note, the red glitter cardstock was a PAIN in the butt to work with! It was very thick & my Cricut had a hard time cutting through it & it shed EVERYWHERE!)
