I had a bunch of new files before Christmas that I didn’t get to make up….so I decided to play catch up and zipped through a few of them tonight. One of them was already cut, another was already made up..I just didn’t get a chance to photograph it. The other two I had made up, but messed up … so these were remakes and I actually like these versions better anyway LOL.
Now bear in mind I get SVG’s because I have a Cricut Explore, but most of these designers design in multiple formats for various cutting machines. So when I refer to design space or Cricut, that doesn’t mean you can’t use these cut files too…check and see.
Also… just an FYI, these files are not always as standard. I import them into Design Space and tweak them a little to suit my own needs. Changing cut areas to write, duplicating layers and using the contour tool to remove the cut outs etc to create a solid background on layers… moving score lines to give a 3/4 fold etc. So please bear in mind most of these files come with a center fold and are set up for cutting, not writing. If you are new to the Cricut, you may not know how to modify things like that yet… never fear..it’s not rocket science.
Ok first one was a remake… I originally started with a watercolored background in the cutouts, looked great but I bombed it when I stuck in on the inside… so take 2.. has a vellum insert and some cute pink ribbon detailing. I scalloped the card on my paper cutter for a softer edge.
Next is a simple little hello card. I had pre-cut this on green glitter card with the intention of using a Christmas design, but Christmas is long gone… so I just switched out that idea and used a stamp from one of the new Layering sets by Hampton Arts. I die cut the circle with a die from some Steampunk gears I picked up on Ebay. It is stamped with Stazon and colored with Zig Clean Color… and a simple little “Hello” die sentiment, again an Ebay buy.
The next one was done on black card using a Zig chalk pen and pencils and I added an oversized die cut sentiment. I also flipped it on it’s side. You will need a Chomas Adapter to use the Zig pens to write and draw on your Cricut Explore.
This one I duplicated the layer, welded the holly leaves and then moved the score line to create a half fold hard. I would probably have added in some red cabochons for the holly berries… but to be honest.. I have no idea where I stuck them lol.
