Creative Card layout design

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Teal and White Cardstock
  • 3 types of Decorative Cardstoc
  • Glue
  • Stickers
  • Heart shaped hole punch

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

So what's nice about this is that you make 3 cards all at once by cutting all elements out of each different type of paper (except the white). Then you mix and match the different papers to compliment the card. Here is what you will need to cut out of each type of paper: All given pieces in the Creative Card cartridge Butterfly layout, one large butterfly (this is done by edit and contouring in CCR removing one butterfly and sizing the remaining one larger) And one extra copy of the die cut piece that goes on the front of the card.
I altered the rectangle in CCR to be thicker so that I could add stickers.
Next cut out two die cut pieces out of the white that are sized smaller that the decorative ones so that it fits inside them for the inside of the card.
Mix and match pieces till you like the contrast and colors and glue everything down. I added a heart with a fiskars large heart hole punch out of three of the types of paper to glue where I signed my name after a sentiment. Also just as a note, you can see that I didn't use the large die cut of the teal or one of the decorative paper cuts on the front of the card. I placed these on the inside of two of the card to add a little somethin-somethin. Also I didn't use all the pieces but feel free to play with what you think looks good.
