The new Cutaway Cards for the Cricut Joy are a neat way to make a quick card.
There are lots of great designs for them in Design Space that are included in the Cricut Access subscription. Search image sets for “cutaway.” With a few changes to the designs, these cards can be made without the Cutaway Cards with regular cardstock on an Explore or Maker machine.
About the Project
This card was easy to assemble, and I have made over forty of them. They can be easily customized by changing cardstock or pen colors. The video below has more information on adapting and assembling this design.
I did a version of this card with the Foil Transfer Tool and really liked how it turned out.
Supplies I Used:
- Foil Cardstock
- Cricut Pens (Silver Gel)
- Foil Transfer Kit
- 3D Foam Squares
- Therm O Web Zots Singles-Medium
- Double-Sided E-Z Runner Grand Adhesive Dispenser
- Cricut Scoring Wheel Tip
- Cricut QuickSwap Housing
- Cricut Explore
- Cricut Maker
Design Space Project Links
Here are the links to the Design Space files for this project. I highly recommend using the Cardstock for Intricate Cuts setting for the layer directly under the cross. This project will cut for free with a Cricut Access subscription.
