Cricut New Arrival Train Card for a baby boy

I have made this card before for his big brother and the parents requested another card to match.

I used my Cricut Explore with the New Arrival and Mickey Font cartridges in Design Space. I had to use the desktop computer app to hide the contours and then saved it and opened it on my iPad to finish the design and cut the project. I have never liked using a computer so the app being so smooth and easy to use, is always my preference! 

I just LOVE how the Explore can cut and draw so efficiently! Look how beautiful the writing looks!

I wanted to be able to cut separate train carriages in different colours without cutting the whole train in each colour. 

Here is a screen shot of the iPad app showing how I worked out the design and matched the papers I had with the colours, and got the placement of the words for the Explore to write with a pen. 

Maybe one day they will allow the images on the app to be filled with a pattern to help with planning a layout! That would be fantastic!!! 

Thanks for looking,
Happy Crafting
