A Well Crafted Retirement

Robot Birthday Card

1 Comment

I bought the Cicut Explore several weeks ago and I am experiencing a pretty steep learning curve with the Design Space software.  I think part of the problem lies in the fact that I never used The Craft Room with my Expression 2 so before I can learn some of the features of the new machine I first have to feel comfortable with the concept of designing on line.  Here is an easel card I made for our nephew.  I have attempted to create a template for the card base, but I am still having some trouble the placement of the score line.

Additional Supplies:

Here are two screen shots from my Design Space to help with the sizing of the cuts. The one of the card base is still a work in progress.
