Faux Calligraphy with your Cricut Maker + Pop Up Card

Hello Everyone!
Ever since I made our Christmas Cards I'm obsessed with gold ink calligraphy, but I'm always afraid I'm not going to be accurate enough to do a big one word sentiment on a card (I should practice more). This time I tried to create a single word sentiment and add several lines to the downward strokes to make it look like dip pen calligraphy. 
This bold sentiment was so stunning in gold and masculine enough that I decided to create an inside fun card to go with it.

Achieving The Best Print Then Cut Image Possible

Hi there crafters!
I don't do much print then cut, but when I do I want my images to be as crisp as I design them and I think you and I buy printers and paper to match and don't want to waste our money.
Sometime ago I showed you how to get the most out of your printer (click to see previous post), but Cricut has made a few changes to how you print then cut since then, so I decided to update the technique.
