2015-05-05; Craft day with Jan Paisley cat card


First a short story. About 10-15 years ago I met a woman at a church retreat. We struck up a conversation and found that we both were rubber stampers. We have been writing and sharing rubber stamped greeting cards all that time. I finally met up with her in person about a month ago. I don’t have any idea why it took me so long to get together with her other than the fact that we both work.

OK, so now onto the card. Last Saturday I took this card sample along with me to show her what I had made using the Cricut. It turned out to complicated to reproduce for the craft day so I just brought it for show and tell.

I had never cut out one of the pre-designed cards from the Paisley cartridge before and it really kind of befuddled me. Anyway, here is what I did with it. It’s called a tab fold card and can be found on page 73 of the book.

Just so you can see the tab closure on the back of the card, here it is

And now the card opened up. I didn’t know if I’d need the layered cat (which I didn’t) in order to make the card. So I just added it as a decoration to the inside of the card. I used the negative cut out from the DP on the front as a decoration to the left panel.

And one last look before you go on about your day.

I cut the card out at 4.25″ and that gave me a finished size of 4.25 x 4.25″. When the card is fully opened it measures 4.25 x 10″

Thanks for stopping by today. Do you have any experience with pre-designed cards? If so, let me know. I’d love to see you examples.
