Shawn created this card with two sheets of cardstock and iron on vinyl. You could substitute a third sheet of cardstock for the iron on vinyl if you choose.
I prefer to use Siser brand vinyl for my iron on projects. I feel that is the best quality brand of iron on vinyl out there, and it weeds the easiest. For permanent vinyl I like StarCraft vinyl.
Over the years I have gotten Siser vinyl from a variety of places, including My Craft Source. When you shop at My Craft Source be sure to use code ShawnMosch to get 5% off your order!
Another retailer that I work with is Vinyl and Tulle. Use coupon code SHAWNMOSCH to save 10% off your order! They ship WORLD WIDE!
Madame Blanks is my recommended source for for my Canadian followers! Use coupon code SHAWN10 to save 10% off your order of StarCraft products!
I love that I can order large rolls or small sheets when ordering Siser online. This can give you a larger variety of choices and allow to to save money on larger orders. To make sure you are getting the best price for your vinyl, make sure to check out my Vinyl Buyers Guide.
- Unzip the zipped file you just downloaded and upload the SVG file to Design Space.
- Ungroup the SVG
- Insert a score line from the Shapes button and make it 8 1/5 inches long
- Select just the base of the card and the score line and use Align to center the score line on the card base
- While you still have just the card base and the score line selected, click Attach. This will hold the placement and position of the score line on the card base.
- Now your card is ready to make! Click Make it and cut all of the layers.
- If you are using iron in vinyl like Shawn is in the presentation for the word Believe and the snowflake, make sure to mirror that layer before cutting.
- After all of the pieces are cut, fold the card base on the score line.
- If you used iron on vinyl as Shawn did in the presentation, weed the excess vinyl off of the carrier sheet around the word Believe and the snowflake. Make sure to weed out the insides of the letters and the small pieces inside the snowflake.
- Take the shadow/offset layer of the word Believe and press the word Believe on to that shadow/offset. Make sure to put parchment paper over the top of the iron on vinyl when pressing. Press for about 6 seconds on a medium heat and then move to another area. Allow it to cool off a little before you peel back the carrier sheet. If any part does not stick you can press it again.
If you want more details on how Shawn made the Mickey Mouse Snowflake for the second half of the presentation you can see her tutorial HERE.
What to know a secret?
Guess what? I was once in your shoes! I was once a Cricut beginner! You can actually look way back on this blog and find my early posts and see how far I have come on my journey!
You can also see that I love helping people. I think we should spend more time having fun crafting than trying to figure out how to use a software program! This is why I break everything I know into easy to follow steps. And because I have written down the steps, added screen shots and videos, you will know that you have the best resources for learning.
I also use a lot of analogies in my tutorials. If I can relate something in the Cricut Design Space software to an every day situation or something most people would encounter in every day life, I feel that helps people to learn. One great example of this is how I compare Cricut Access to Netflix.
So if you feel like you are always struggling with Cricut Design Space and wish there was one place you could go to learn how to use all of the buttons and features so you could spend your time just enjoying crafting then you should check out my Teach Me Cricut Design Space Online Course. This course is like having a direct line to my brain and downloading all of the information I know about using Cricut Design Space!
