I love card layouts that look complicated but are actually quite simple to put together. The card sketch this week is one such layout. Oh yes, and welcome to Episode 10 in my card sketch series!
If you’ve been following me for long you know that I have an ongoing love affair with layers. How could you not? When the little details all come together to make something that looks like this, it’s hard to not be enamoured with layers.
There are a couple of ways that you can set up this cut. I used my Cricut Explore Air. If you do not have a Cricut, simply stack all the cards together and cut them all at the same time to achieve the same angle.
Now if you do have access to Design Space I have made my original design available on Cricut Design Space. You may notice that I have the file to cut all on one sheet. This is a little trick I picked up a while back. Instead of loading several mats to cut a single color I get all my cutting done in one step. I’ve learned to give myself a bit of space on the mats. It’s certainly not my favorite thing when the cut lands in the wrong place because I was trying to crowd the cutting mat.
Now I always say to make the card yours. This one is really easy to change up just by changing the angle of the cuts. Naturally, you can also change the orientation of the base card. You can also choose to embellish it up or keep it simple.
As always my card sketch comes with just the sketch or measurements to guide you on your way.
