Here's my spin of her project using CTMH Kraft Die Cut Cards (D1474). First lay the die cut card out, noticing that it is longer than 12 inches. Flip the card over keeping the die cut edge tucked in and lay inside side down on your Cricuit 12 x 12 cutting mat. I used the Cricut scraper to securely place the card to the mat so it won't slip.
Load the mat into the Cricut, using the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection (Z1686) exclusive to CTMH, select oval #3 and set your cut size to 2 1/2 inches.
Next set the Cricut Left/Right to 1 3/4 and the In/Out to 11/16 and you're ready to cut.
