Glass Etching - Blackletter Cricut Cartridge

This glass was etched using Armour Glass Etching Cream and the Blackletter Cricut Cartridge.
 The lettering is 2.245" wide and 1.157" high.
Weed out the pieces you will not be needing (use the negative).
Apply the transfer paper to the front of the negative by peeling apart the transfer paper and placing the sticky side of the paper on top of the word Ervin.
Peel the backing off of the vinyl.
The top of the capital letter E is 3/4" from the top of the glass
The bottom of the E is 1 3/4" from the top of the glass
Place the vinyl on the glass and make sure to get all of the bubbles out of the vinyl close to the edges of the lettering that will be etched.
Apply a generous amount of etching cream and leave on for 15 minutes.
After the 15 minutes put the glass under warm running water and quickly get all of the etching cream off and pull the vinyl off of the glass.
Dry the glass and you have an etched glass.
