Sugar Skull HTV, Vinyl, and Cardstock - SVG Cutting Files Guest Designer June

      It's my third week as the guest designer for SVG Cutting Files.  
This week I chose the sugar skull file.
  One of my best friends has had a rough week and I decided to 
surprise her with a gift to cheer her up!  
 I'm fairly new at HTV (Heat Transfer Vinyl) and this is my first time layering.  I love the glitter on a simple grey t-shirt.  Of course I forgot to mirror my image (a common mistake and necessity for any writing) which means to reverse the image since HTV cuts upside down.  
Thank goodness with an image such as the sugar skull, it doesn't matter!  
I especially love how the rose, with the top fine detailed layer, 
turned out with a bit of dimension and delicacy!   

      I also cut the sugar skull file using vinyl.  For both the HTV and vinyl I left off the back layer of the sugar skull, preferring for the color of the base to show through.  

      
        Lastly I cut the sugar skull out of cardstock and created a card using the nugget card - vertical file.   I also used the candy wrap die from Jaded Blossom.  I used a couple of pieces that would normally be thrown away from the cut outs of the sugar skull to decorate the card.  I added some Liquid Pearls and Stickles because a sugar skull needs some bling!
    
I hope you enjoyed seeing how versatile the files are at SVG Cutting files.  Not only was I able to make two gifts, 
I also made a beautiful card with a treat, all using the same file!
