My Mickey Mouse Car Decal - Shawn Mosch

My Mickey Mouse Car Decal

I am not sure why, but in recent years I have gotten really worried about trying something new with my crafts. I have seen other people making decals or shirts with images they cut with their Cricut. I would look at them and think how great they look, but for some reason I would not try making one of my own. I was worried I would not be able to get the fonts I downloaded to work, or that images I created would not cut out right.

So recently I had someone ask me on Facebook if I could make them a car decal.  I said I was willing to give it a try.  Well, theirs turned out so good that I made one for my car.  I love the way it turned out!

This was so easy to do!!!!  For mine, I used the image of Mickey’s head from the Disney Mickey Font cartridge.  There is an option to cut just the outline/silhouette, which makes a nice frame.  Then I used the text function in Cricut Design Space™ to add the word Dream.  Once I had that positioned where I wanted it, I used a circle to slice out part of the Mickey Mouse icon so that the frame of Mickey starts and stops when it gets to the word Dream.

I cut this decal from Oracle 651 which is a permanent vinyl.

If you are in any Cricut crafting groups or Facebook pages, I am sure you have encountered conversations about which transfer tape is the best.  I am thrifty, and I did not want to invest a lot of money into transfer tape for doing one decal on my car, and one for the person that requested one from me on Facebook.  I had heard that some people use Glad Press and Seal for transfer tape so I figured I would give it a try.  It worked great!!!!
