Inlaid Wood Cricut Cards

I just made some new cards using the Boho Graphics Cartridge.  I am really excited about the way they turned out and am already thinking up some new ideas. 

I got these rolls of drawer liner at the dollar store and thought I could use them to create a really cool inlaid wood look.

I used the owl image from the free trial of the Boho Graphics and a rectangle from the Cricut Craft Room Basics that was just slightly smaller than my card.  I cut it out on both the darker and the lighter wood grain liner.

I set my needle at 3 and my pressure and speed low and slow.  Even though these images were fairly intricate, I had no problem at all getting a nice, easy clean cut.

The best part was no GLUE!  Since the material is meant to stick to the bottom of drawers and shelves, I could just stick it right to my card, no gluing involved.  This project was incredibly easy and, in my opinion, makes a big impact. 

I used the same technique with some different images and different patterned liners.

Trail Mix Container

After I used up the oatmeal in this big cardboard tube, I repurposed it to keep trail mix.  I got a 9 foot roll of drawer liner from Family Dollar for $3 and covered the tube with it.  It is a little thinner than vinyl, but it is a much better bargain and there are some really fun patterns like faux wood I used.
I used the Cricut Circus Font for the wording and the Winter Wonderland Cart for the trees.

Cricut Dominoes

I recently made a few full sets of dominoes using only the Cricut Craft Room Basics.  I'll admit, it took a while to set it up in the craft room, but once that was finished, it's been one of my simplest and easiest projects!

I only used two shapes, the rectangle and circle.  These shapes were duplicated multiple times to create the domino tiles.

A full set of dominoes fits on one cutting mat!
