FCCB 2.28 Shape Card: Lucky

For this week's Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog: Shape Card.
From the Storybook cart, pg. 76.  Cut on my Gypsy at 4".  "Lucky" from Indie Art cart loaded on Gypsy.

Accent blackout was selected, copied, flipped and welded to make card base. 
Accent frame was selected, and the "to" hidden so that it would not cut.  "Lucky" was selected and cut to fit frame size.  I hope to make this card again, and I will make it 51/2" or more.  4" feels so small.
Wow, did I have to dig deep to find cuts appropriate for St. Patrick's day!  Admittedly I don't own that many carts, but its amazing what you'll come up with when you have to dig deep.  I really love my CE, my Gypsy, and all the carts I do have!  These little clovers in the corners of this design were just perfect for what I wanted.  And I was all set to spell out and weld the word "luck" when by chance I hit the shift on the Indie Art cart and there was "lucky" already set and ready to go.  Amazing.  I hope you enjoy this card.
