This is my second card using a cartridge from the Cricut Craft Room exclusive line. I purchased their Valentine’s Sentiments cartridge online and had it almost immediately! If you would like to watch my video on how to order from the Cricut Craft Room, click here.
The card and layers were cut at 4.6 inches from the Cricut Craft Room Valentine’s Sentiments using the Cricut Craft Room Studio. I cut two shadow layers and used the glue and fold method to attach them.
I added a twine bow and button and was done! Well almost done, I added the sentiment using Photoshop.
My next card was made with my new toy, the Cameo Silhouette. I love all my Cricuts including my Imagine and Gypsy and will continue to use them. I especially love the cartridges and all the layers! Cricut makes it so easy to cut a wide variety of materials!
I purchased the Cameo to be able to cut fonts for free that are already installed on my computer and to print colored images on my printer and cut them out with my Cameo. I am just learning the print and cut function and I will let you know how it goes. So far, I have been very impressed with its accuracy! I also want to cut SVG files since there are lots of free SVG files out there and tons of cute ones to purchase. In other words, I like having a variety.
This card is from the Silhouette Store and was cut at 7.24 x 10.42 inches. The card measures 5.25 inches tall. I added some glitter on the bow and was done. Super easy first card! Note the intricate cuts on the wing. Wow!
If you want to check out the Silhouette store, click here. You can also download their software for free to try it out, by clicking here. I tried out the software and shopped the store for weeks before deciding to buy. The software includes 50 free images that you can play with. You have to buy the Silhouette if you want to cut or print and cut using your home printer. I will keep you informed of my Cameo adventures.
In the meantime, have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
