The "Spooktacular" Farst

Welcome back for another project!

I was so excited about Create A Critter 2 coming out, I totally forgot about Bump in the Night Cricut Lite Cartridge. So, I pulled it out and picked the cutest monster I could find....let me introduce you to the Spooktacular Farst!!

Size: A2

Bump in the Night Cricut Lite Cartridge
Gypsy by Cricut
Stampin' Up Cardstock: Concord Crush, Perfect Plum, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz
Patterned Paper: Recollections - Monsters & Robots
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Sentiment: My Pink Stamper - Spookalicious
Adhesive: Scotch ATG, Foam Squares - 3L, Tombow Mono Adhesive - Permanent

Gypsy Measurements
Farst (Concord Crush) 3.78w X 4.25h
Farst-s (Perfect Plum) 3.20w X 4.25h
Farst Layer (Pear Pizzazz) 1.46w X 4.25h
Farst Layer-s (Whisper White) 1.37w X 4.25h

I would not recommend making this cut any smaller than 4 inches. I originally started out there, but could make it a little bigger and still have it fit on the card nicely. The pieces cut out nicely. With the Cricut if you do not make the cut big enough your cuts may look jagged or be very thin. If you have a cut you are doing and you are not getting the quality you want, check these things first:

1. Sharp blade
2. Sticky mat

If those are alright, then look at the image you are cutting. You may need to just make it a larger cut.

In the newer books, they will tell you on some images to cut at least 5 inches, for example.

Hope you have a spooktacular day!!!
