4 Window Card - Just Like Sizzix Cut
The one thing I am loving about the Cricut's Design Studio, is that I can copy some of the cuts that Sizzix put out there. Sizzix has come out with a ton of window cut dies, which with some patience and time, is easy to recreate and cut on a Cricut Machine. I do have a Sizzix Machine, but figure if I can do the cut on my Cricut, why spend money, AND take up MORE space than I already am using?! So, if I can mimic a cut that Sizzix has, then whooop-tee-dooooo for me (and those of you who agree with me and want to use these cuts as well). Although the downfall of cutting this with a Cricut Machine, is that of not being able to cut through a chipboard, however, most of my creations don't consist of chipboard anyways. Like this card. I don't plan on cutting this on chipboard, and then adhering to a card front. This was cut directly on cardstock. Like the Sizzix window die cuts, the Cricut Design Studio allows you to move your windows wherever you want them to be.
Below is a photo of Sizzix's Window Die Cut, to give you an idea of what I'm referring to....

Cartridges Used: George Font & Basic Shapes
Just in case you are curious as to why I list the cartridges used (besides sharing the "deets"), it is because if you want to download my cricut cuts - you need to make sure that you have the same cartridges that I've used in order for you to cut these.
