Scallop Heart, Inner Swirls & Scallop Card
Here is another reason why I love using the Cricut's Design Studio. If I ever want to create a layer to fit exactly inside another cut, then I can do that. I first select the cut that I want, which in this case is the scallop heart, and adjust to the size I am looking for. I then select the inner Swirls design, and on my computer screen, directly layer this design on top of my scallop heart and adjust accordingly to the exact size that I want. I then move the design over to the right, and select the cardstock that I want to use. Adhere the size of the carstocks (which I used 6x6) to the mat, 1 red, the other white, and have both cuts cut at the same time!!! How cool, huh?!?!!? To add the glitter - I simply ran the swirl die cut through my Xyron machine, then bathed it in my glitter container.
The card is also a cut that I created using the Cricut Design Studio. It is a scallop edge card cut. The card cuts out to 5.5 x 11 and you can cut 2 cuts 1 time if you have the cricut expression.
Here is what my creation turned out to look like. As you can imagine, it is an over sized card, therefore - you may have to create an envelope to go with it. =0)
