- Upload the cut file into Cricut Design Space and add it to your canvas.
- The first thing you need to do is Ungroup.
- Then, select the cut lines, go up to Linetype, and from the dropdown menu, select Score.
- Select the card layer and the scoreline layer and Attach.
- Next, we need to separate the snow globe and the snowman from the rest of the card because we don’t want them to cut out of the same cardstock. So, to do this, choose a basic shape to cover each element.
- Starting with the snowglobe, cover it with your basic shape. Then select the basic shape layer and the layer where the snowglobe is and choose Slice (bottom right).
- Delete the layers you don’t need. Repeat with the snowman.
- Make a copy of your card so we can do some more slicing. Using a couple of basic shapes (we used rectangles), cover up each of the side panels on the card. We’re slicing and removing everything except that center panel.
- Make that center panel a little bit smaller so it fits on the center of the card with a little edge showing all around. This is going to be the card liner.
- We used the font Naomi to create the card sentiment. Naomi comes with glyphs that you can add for the swirls and curly cues on the letters. To use glyphs, you will need a program like Inkscape or Illustrator, so instead, we have created a cut file of the words Tis the Season using Naomi and the glyphs for you to make it easier.
- Once you have sized the sentiment to fit your card, you want to change the color so it cuts on its own mat. You will need to Weld the sentiment before cutting to keep the letters together and in order.
- You’re ready to go ahead and click Make It. It’s always a great idea to check your mats to make sure it all looks right before cutting. Once you do, press Continue.
- Select your material – Medium Cardstock. Load each mat one at a time to cut out each color of cardstock.
- Fold your card along the score lines, creating creases with your bone folder.
- Use your ATG to adhere the liner to the center of the card. Then attach the snow globe and the snowman and all of his features. Note that it does matter which direction the pieces go – there IS a front and a back. We’re using the Zig glue for the tiny pieces instead of the ATG for the best results.
- We like using reverse tweezers for placing those small pieces too. It makes it so much easier!
