Baby Girl Chinese Characters

     Today we are creating projects exclusive to Cricut Craft Room Exclusive carts. I am going to show you a baby card using the Chinese Characters and Craft Room Basics so lets get started!
     This is a really quick and easy card to make. I started with a piece of  8.5" x 11" purple card stock that was cut in half lengthwise for a top fold. The onesie is in the Craft Room Basics and was cut @ 4.0". I love this paper from s.e.i. I used a variety of scraps to create my back ground including the pink that I edged with a Martha Stewart border punch and some ribbon I had laying around.
     The Chinese Character for "Love" was cut @ 1" for both the shadow and the main characters. An easy way to adhere the smaller pieces is to do the following: after cutting the characters, weed out the background like you would do vinyl. I then apply transfer tape while it is still on the mat. This tape is great since it does not lift the paper. After it is transferred, flip it over and apply your adhesive. I used quickie glue since it was great for the small pieces. Then you just position it on your shadow and, voila, perfect placement every time!
     I found a Studio G stamp that I had to add the "love" English sentiment and finished decorating with some Imaginesce rhinestones. I also found some rub-ons that I had from My Sentiments Exactly that went perfectly with this card. Since I love dimension, I had to raise the onesie with pop dots.
