This past weekend, I delivered this groom's cake to The Chattanoogan Hotel. This is the mascot of Notre Dame's Fighting Irish. I don't know if this fella has a name, but he's far too cute to be mean, right?
I made the logo by taking a graphic from the web and converting to a Cricut Cut file using my Sure Cuts a Lot software. I broke the logo into 4 parts: navy, yellow, green, and white. For the navy layers, I cut the entire image, one big blue Irishman (about a foot high). Then each of the colors got cut and placed on top of the navy layer, just like a great big jigsaw puzzle. It made it look like the navy was outlining all the other pieces.
This was by far my largest and most elaborate Cricut project to date. If you're attempting something like this, my advise is to put all the pieces together and get them just like you want them and then go back and "glue" them down with piping gel or tylose.
