Hi Everyone. I loved how my last daisy cut file turned so much that when I saw the exclamation point on the new Cindy Loo cartridge I just had to try it out. I think I might love this even more than the original. The only problem is I don't own this cart yet, so now I need to wait until it goes on sale so I can pick it up. But if anyone gets the chance to actually cut this please let me know how it turned out. Enjoy!
P.S. I wonder how well it will layer with the other daisies. I really need to buy Cindy Loo!!
I know there is a new cart coming out soon that looks like it has lots of tools and home improvement images on it but there was a request for this on the Cricut Message Board so I took the challenge and created this cut file.
Hi everyone. This is one of my favorite cut files. I love, love, love Kristina Werner's blog,www.kwernerdesign.com, and fell in love with the flower on this card. I decided to try to recreate it with my Cricut.
The only image I used was the exclamation point from the Base Camp Cartridge to make these. Base Camp is my all-time favorite font, I love its clean lines!
I like to cut these out of text weight paper, layer the different size flowers and curl the petals back to give them some dimension. This is a great way to use up some of those patterned papers that you may like the overall color of but aren't crazy about the pattern.
I was recently on the Cricut message board and one of the women there was looking for a cut file for a petal card or envelope; it can be used of either purpose. I've decided to post the link to the cut file here so others could access it if they want. Just click on the link below the image to download the cut file.
This is an example of a card the opens from the side.
The first step is to choose and image to make into a card. Ideally you will want one that can connect in at least two spots.
Now place the image on your mat.
Next copy and paste the image so you have two images directly on top of each other that are identical in shape and size.
While the second image is still selected check off the flip option.
If you want the card to open on the side grab the arrow button on the image that slides it horizontally and move the top image over until the two are overlapping slightly in at least two spots.
If you would like to have the card open from the bottom you will need to rotate one of the images 180 degrees. You can do this by clicking the "Turn" button twice. Now grab the arrow button on the image that slides it vertically and slide it down until the heads are overlapping just slightly.
Next choose each image and select the "Weld" feature for both of them.
The last step is to cut it out on your Cricut machine of choice!
I am so excited about this new opportunity. If you haven't heard, Robyn at MyPinkStamper.com is starting a monthly design team program. She and a panel will pick three people each month and feature their creations. If nothing else, this is motivating me to create!
