Step 1 To Make A 3D Card For A Birthday; Put together The Card and Mat
Take your card, affirm the orientation of your card earlier than you place it in your mat.
That is a picture solely, scroll down to observe the video:
Then while you’re glad, use a instrument or place one thing on high so you’ll be able to press the cardboard down correctly.
It’s not fully crucial to position a further piece of paper on high of your card to rub it, nevertheless, I needed to fully keep away from any potential of constructing the cardboard soiled.
Step 2 To Make A 3D Card For A Birthday; Put together Your File In Design Area
Obtain your file from DesignBundles and unzip. Then open your Cricut Design Area app and add the file.
When you have multiple Cricut machine, guarantee that you’ve the right machine chosen inside your settings.
Step 3 To Make A 3D Card For A Birthday; Load Mat and Make
That is the half that takes a short while in case your design is as difficult because the butterfly that I chosen. After it’s accomplished, hit the unload button within the Design Area App.
Step 4 To Make A 3D Card For A Birthday; Weeding
Weeding is the method of separating your completed piece from these little lower out items. I discover it best to weed when it isn’t nonetheless hooked up to the cardboard as you’ll be able to see within the video.
It result in a tiny D I Saster (that’s how I say that phrase) – I broke a part of a wing. Nonetheless, it was the layers of paper that had separated so it wasn’t like a clear lower, I used to be in a position to restore.
It’s a lot simpler to weed by holding each side of the cardboard along with your finger and thumb so to maintain on to the actually spindly items and get them out both from the again the place it will not be seen or the entrance.
Weeding from the entrance is an absolute nightmare for me and I don’t know if that’s true for everybody.
So if you will get it off in a single piece, it will likely be simpler when you’ll be able to add further help from holding.
Dealing With Paper Enamel….
Each time the Cricut machine cuts, and there is just a bit little bit of paper simply poking out, that’s a little bit of tooth.
I pulled on that on the again layer of the paper began to come back up.
So I lifted it off as a result of cardstock is simply layered paper pressed collectively and cold and warm urgent it and I can all the time reinforce it.
Step 5 To Make A 3D Card For A Birthday; Doing Repairs
I unintentionally broke one of many little items of butterfly wings. However as a result of it was the layered paper had simply come aside.
Then, I used to be simply in a position to make use of the microdots and form of use the again of one of many Cricut instruments to essentially get it on.
In fact you would use a glue pen or one thing like that to reattach it as a result of it is going to have a positive level.
And I had a little bit of hassle getting the wee plastic of that, nevertheless it labored out okay. I used to be in a position to do it skinny sufficient, and I used to be in a position to make sure that it would not have an effect on some other a part of the cardboard.
So I did all my work from the again as a result of that’s the place the cardboard inventory is gonna go over.
The individuals receiving the cardboard, will not see these elements. So the again of your card, when you strive to not be messy, like when you do, it isn’t the tip of the world, you do not want to tear up your card and begin over again.
Repairs can happen and you are able to do very properly. Each time I used to be rubbing my fingers over it again, it was as a result of the tooth from the, or the tooth from all of the little holes that I used to be poking, it had all poked out of the again.
Step 6 To Make A 3D Card For A Birthday; Contrasting Cardstock
Now it is time to lower the cardboard inventory and work out when you’ve received the entire tooth and the little bits of scraggly paper off the corners.
You’ll know when you haven’t managed to take away the entire items as a result of it is perhaps slightly tough to insert the cardstock, as you see the difficulty I had within the video! It was only one small piece.
Your contrasting card simply wants to fit into the little corners of your lower out design.
