This week at Frosted Designs, our challenge is "Cell Phone" which means either creating with the pictures from your cell phone, creating a layout about your cell phone or any other project involving your cell phone.
I finally got my new cell phone!! I got the Samsung LG3. I am having so much fun with it, but the white cover was a little boring.....
Don't you agree?? I spent a week trying to decide on a design.
I love butterflies and the color purple so I started with some purple vinyl and my Gypsy.
The butterflies come from Paper Lace 2. I copied and welded the butterflies together around the monogram from Creative Memories Reminisce Accents. I was inspired by some cell phone covers I saw on Pinterest.
In order to trim the edges of the butterflies, I added a rectangle the same size as my phone. I did not group or weld the rectangle as I wanted the blade to cut through the design.
My test cut with purple cardstock showed me the size was good.
I loaded my mat with my purple vinyl. I set my Expression to 3-3-3 (Depth, Speed and Pressure) for a kiss cut.
I weeded the extra cuts with my Cricut Dental Tool.
I used transfer tape to place the vinyl on my phone. I burnish the vinyl with my scraper and carefully peel off the transfer tape.
Here is my finished design! I love it and the best part is I can change the design without buying a new cover!!
