I’m really excited to be selling some new items over on Etsy. It all started with an artist trading card group that I’m in. There was this adorable puzzle card. One of the ladies in the group had tried to recreate it herself. Her result wasn’t bad but it wasn’t great.
The minute I saw it I knew it was a job for the Cricut! It didn’t take me long to design up the card and I was very pleased with how it turned out. I introduce my original design Triptych Interlocking Puzzle Door ATC blank. If you’d like to grab a set head on over to my Etsy shop.
I love how the front interlocks when closed. When open the blank measures 5 1/2″ wide x 3 1/2″ tall, once folded the dimensions are the ATC ACEO standard size of 2 1/2″ wide x 3 1/2″ tall.
Once the puzzle blank was designed, I started wondering what other blanks I could create. After much trial and a little error I created the Triptych Garden Gate ATC blank. For a little bit of variety it comes with and without a keyhole. Want one?
A triptych is a set of three pictures or panels, usually hinged so that the two wing panels fold over the larger central one. This configuration has been used in art pieces since the Middle Ages. When open the blank measures 5″ wide x 3 1/2″ tall, once folded the dimensions are the ATC ACEO standard size of 2 1/2″ wide x 3 1/2″ tall. The possibilities with this one are endless and I can’t wait to start seeing what you create with yours!
Both styles were a hit with my ATC group. I thought I’d put some up on Etsy to see how they do. I had one last style that kept begging me to create it. After spending a few hours sorting out exactly how to design it, once again..another winner. And so, my Swing style blank ATC was born. You can get one here.
The swing style is going to be particularly fun to work with. I am already imagining the fun things I’ll be able to do with the peek-a-boo features at work here. I really liked being able to create these. I can only imagine how frustrating it would be to cut one by hand. I believe I’ll cut one for myself out of watercolor paper soon.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look.
Until next time,
