Cricut® Artfully Sent: Pop-Up Cards with Icons

When I posted The Basics of Cricut® Artfully Sent last week I was hoping CTMH would release more videos about Artfully Sent and my wish was answered.

The week's video focuses on the Pop-Up Cards with Icons.

The CTMH Corp. description of Cricut® Artfully Sent: Pop-Up Cards with Icons is "Take a look at some eye-popping cards made with the Pop-up and Icon functions of Close To My Heart’s Cricut® Artfully Sent collection."

Some tips shared in the video:
  • use the Score Board (Z1937) to score the tick lines (or enhance score lines if using the Explore); note on the older Cricut® machines the image may be still connected where you do not need it to be (shown around 1:19 in this video) and you just snip or break it apart
  • pull the middle of the balloon to the center of the card to create the 3-dimensional component
  • when applying adhesive start with adhesive on the center of the card
  • when applying the dimensional "liner" to the card, start adhering in the middle then work to the outside so you don't get any ripples or bubbles
  • never throw away scraps from cutting out the cards because like Artbooking you can use the negative spaces on other cards or scrapbook pages
Here is a page from the handbook identifying the pieces of the Beautiful Day Pop-up card shown in the video:
