Get well soon

A dear friend of mine had open heart surgery this week. Everything went well and I hope to be able to go see her this weekend.

She loves purple so I always make her purple cards. This one is no exception.

My plan was to fill the front of the card with hearts from the Don Juan cartridge so I had to come up with a way to place the papers on my mat so I could avoid having to run the mat through my Cricut many times to get all the cuts I wanted.

I decided to use a large square punch to get consistently sized shapes so I could place them in a way that would allow me to design my project in Cricut Craft Room so I get all of my pieces with one trip through the Cricut.

Here you can see how I placed the squares on my mat.

In the video below, I explain how I made the images match up in Cricut Craft Room.
