- Measure the size of the card you’ll be making.
- Import the cut files you’ll be using into Design Space. In this case, our file is a Print then Cut.
- Grab a square and size it for the card base. You will need to unlock it so that you can make it into a rectangle the size of your card.
- Then, we’re using this same method to grab another rectangle to create a front panel for the card. These shapes will give you an idea of how to appropriately size your design so that it fits your card perfectly.
- Move the cut file over to the square, size it, and arrange it the way how you want it to. Use Align to center it on your card.
- Once happy with your design, click both the design layer and the layer for the front panel of your card in the Layers Panel, and choose Flatten.
- Go ahead and click make it then send it to the printer. Remember that Cricut will add registration marks around your design. These are what your Cricut will read with its sensors so it can cut out your design properly.
- Once finished printing, place your printed design on your cutting mat. Insert it into your Cricut machine and have it cut out.
- Now, you can use your ATG gun to glue your card components together.
- On some of our cards, we have used things like Glitter Glue and Glossy Accents to take them to the next level. You can also embellish the edges of your paper using various types of scissors like Pinking Shears or by using a paper distresser.
