I saw a Zombie X-ing sign in a Halloween Costume flyer and thought "how fun" and decided to make one. I wanted mine to be in the shape of the School Crossing signs. I have the Street Sign cartridge, but the sign shape I wanted is not on the cart. As a baseball mom, I found a solution.
I put 2 home plates from Baseball on my Gypsy mat and welded them together.
I opened a new layer and copied my welded image onto it. I enlarged it to create a shadow layer.
I opened a new layer and put the characters and words on my mat to fit inside the sign shape. The Frankenstein and his bride are sized to 3.70 inches. The words are sized to 1 inch.
In order to place my images where I want them, I copied and pasted the sign base onto my layer. NOTE ~ I did not weld the sign I just grouped it with the characters. Welding images inside a solid shape (the sign) will hide all of the inner cuts.
I cut out the larger sign in black cardstock.
I cut out the characters and letters in black cardstock. I adhered the yellow sign onto the black sign. Then I placed the template cut over the sign.
I adhered the characters and words on the sign using the template as a guide. I peeled the template off.
I hung this sign on the door to my home daycare for fun!
