Cricut – Elegant Edges and George Basic Shapes (for heart)
The first (and hardest, I think) step in making this card is cutting out and assembling the three layers. The largest bottom layer I cut at 4 ¼ “ and I also cut the shadow at the same size. The middle layer I cut at 3 ¾ “ and the shadow. The heart I cut at 3” and also with the shadow. You do not have to use a Cricut to make this card. The tutorials I have seen use Nestabilities. But you can use whatever you have access to. You can even just use circles or squares if you like.
After you have the layers assembled and embellished how you like, you can begin attaching them together. This is the easy part!
Take your largest (bottom) layer and whatever tool you like to use to make a hole for your brad. I like to use a craft knife that has a broken tip to just slice a little spot. You want the brad to go through at the top center far enough away from the edge that it won’t tear. Now take the middle layer and do the same thing on the bottom of it. The middle layer will go on top of the bottom with the brad holding them both together. Next make a hole on the top of the middle layer and the bottom of the top layer (if this sounds confusing please watch how I do it in the video). Attach the top onto the middle with another brad. And now you are done!
Very simple! And so easy to do in whatever theme you want!
