Hiya, today we have the first set of Christmas Cards of the year – I know I am actually really early this year. I wanted to make sure to start early so you all had plenty of time to use these videos as inspiration if you wanted to.
Todays cards are made using the foiling technique on the Cricut Maker in order to make relatively quick, easy yet elegant cards. It took me initially a little longer than expected because firstly the design process (something you can avoid by using the download – see link down below) plus I discovered for some reason that the Cricut does the ‘cutting’ process as score, foil, cut. Which may initially not seem a problem until you realise that you have to add your foil to the mat without removing it from the machine. Again if we were not bulk making and therefore not using a whole 12″ x 12″ sheet of card and foil this may not be such an issue, but since we are here it would be next to impossible to add the foil at that stage. It would seem more logical to me for Cricut to have set the order to foil, score, cut.
But anyway what I ended up doing was removing the score lines, after all the score part of the card is very easy to do with a score board and even if the Cricut scored the card you would still have to do the folding and creasing so you aren’t really adding much to the process in the end anyway. I made sure to set up the sizing of the card so it is easy to find the midway score line so you should not have the issue I had initially.
So I hope you enjoy, and don’t forget although this video, rather unusually for me, takes a look at my design process, you do have the download available if you want to save yourself the bother and have it all done for you.
