I’m working on my daughter’s birthday party… a The Greatest Showman-themed slumber party (my kids study circus arts and are both obsessed with The Greatest Showman). I bought this file on Etsy (this shop has some gorgeous files) to cut out invites, but it was far too detailed for the size of the invites. I’ll probably try again, but I didn’t have any other cardstock with me at the time. Anyway, I decided to cut it out on some Baltic Birch ply. I covered it with transfer tape, which I’m kind of regretting because I think the lightly charred wood pairs well with the design. I used the Medium Maple proofgrade settings.
This design was meant to be cut on a cutting machine (i.e. Silhouette) and I was convinced that it would not survive the kerf of the laser with such detailed cuts. Some of the lines are impossibly thin. But somehow it all worked out and it looks amazing. I did lose one star outline (on the cannon) as I was trying to get the transfer paper off. If I cut it again, I might try to make that a solid star because it was completely charred. This is taken at a slight angle, but any of the lines that look really dark are so thin that I was afraid they’d snap just by touching them.
