HI friends! I wanted to share with you how I make my own shape cards using my gypsy and Cricut but you can use the Cricut Craft Room to get the same results... Let's get started!
Using Songbird cart, I picked out this pretty flower
- first on this cartridge the flowers are lettered so I had to remove the letter "x" for this blossom by using the hide feature
- next I set my size at 3.5" for my flower and copied 2 on the gypsy
- third, I flipped the blossoms and butted them up against each other at the top
- fourthly, I welded the two together so then cut as one image
- lastly, I cut another blossom at 3.5" in pattern paper.
- here you can see the flower welded together and folded to make my card base. Note that when you fold it, you lose the point of the blossom
- I cut the top of blossom from the stem on the pattern paper, this is going to be the front of my blossom
- using my color pencils and a flat embellishment, I finished off the details for my card
- My final card...
Next, here is a card from the Wild Card cartridge ( this is still one of my favorites). This card and all the layers that go with it are set to cut proportionally (make sure that you real dial size is OFF).
- I cut this card base and all layers at 5" from white card stock.
- The layers for this card... base, flower layer, leaves, leaf liner, sentiments( all cut leaving my size at 5", meaning my leaves actually cut at 2" but are proportional to my 5" blossom)
- Here is the inside of the card using the leaf liner and sentiment.
- Used color pencils to outline my leaves
- Here is my final card, used a button for the flower center and my color pencil to give it some depth
So there you have them, let me know if you have any questions with welding, flipping or any other Cricut card questions!
Hope you have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by,
