Teach Me Tuesday- Using Hello Kitty Cartridge

I totally forgot to make sure this posted yesterday, good thing
I checked today (even if it one day late)

Question-  How do you layer cuts from HELLO KITTY GREETINGS cricut cartridge?

First off, this cartridge is super cute!  I love all the cuts on this cartridge, great cuts for every season!
When I first got this cartridge, it was a little confusing on how to layer because all the cuts seemed to have a weird shape and didn't look like they were sized right.  After a little playing I realized how super easy it is.

The trick to make it easy when layering is to remember:
TREAT EVERY CUT AS IF IT HAS A SHADOW

I cut the basic Hello Kitty Face out of my cricut and here are all the pieces.


I added the big white face portion remembering that it has a shadow...
Same with the bow pieces

Same as the nose and ear
I cut out the cute butterfly and did the same steps.

I made this super quick layout with these cuts.  Sorry for the lighting in the pictures, I had just a minute to hurry and snap pictures before I had to run errands.


Items Used:
*Hello Kitty Greeting Cricut Cartridge
Paper:  SEI, DCWV

I hope this answered some of your questions about layering cuts from Hello Kitty Greetings.
