Playing in Cricut Craftroom

Good morning.  I hope you're all enjoying the start of your summer.  We've been enjoying the nice weather and spending a bit of time outside.

I wanted to share something I did in Cricut Craftroom the other day using my Gingerbread cart.  I thought it would be fun to see if I could make my own shaped card base by welding shapes together and here is what I came out with...

I took the train image and sized it to the size I wanted.  Then I copied it and flipped one of them.  I moved them together to form a "fold" and welded it.  Then I took the layer and added it to make sure I got the size right.  I cut them out and glued them.  I thought the train would be cute as a birthday card for one of my nephews.
