I love using things I have to make my crafting life easier, and when it can include Cricut, ink, paper and my favourite colours life is simply sweet.

Take a look at this easy hack using die-cuts and the amazing Cricut Transfer Tape. I used the transfer tape, with the grid lines on it to easily line up my die-cuts, keep them in place while I add adhesive and then adhere them straight onto my card – seriously this could not have been easier.

How to:

I cut the letters out of AC Cardstock and in less than five minutes I made this card using this easy-to-do hack.
Cricut StandardGrip Transfer Tape has enough grip to hold the cardstock but can be removed easily and cleanly without tearing your cardstock or leaving any residue. So this was a huge plus in my day. Best of all is that I can also keep that little piece of transfer tape, replace the backing and use it for the same purpose again.

Step 1

Cut several letters out of AC Cardstock using your GoCut & Emboss Die Cutting Machine and alphabet die set.

Step 2

Cut a piece of transfer tape a bit wider than what your letters are. I did make sure I had a line that I could comfortably add the letters to and ensure that they were all lined up.

Step 3

Use your Cricut tweezers and place the letters down onto the transfer tape {sticky side} backwards. To make sure you have it right you could flip the tape and view it from the front.

Step 4

Add some Tombow adhesive to the letters and leave to dry until the glue is tacky. Then flip over the transfer tape and position the lines on the tape to the base of your card to make sure it is straight, place it down and press to adhere the letters to your card. Carefully peel the tape off by rolling it back onto itself.
Finish off your card with a stamped sentiment and embellishments as desired.

Such a quick and easy way of getting things straight and applying those smaller die-cut elements to your projects.
