How to Size Your Envelope to Fit Your Card in Design Space!

In my Cricut Lovers Guide to Design Space group, we've gotten several questions about sizing envelopes to fit cards. Of course, the easiest way is to load your card and envelope onto the Design Space canvas and resize them both at the same time. But if you've made a card and now want an envelope to for it, here's a little tutorial on how to make the envelope fit your card. You just need to know the size of your card and find an envelope in your images in Design Space! {click on the photo to enlarge it so you can read it!}

Swirly Snowman from Kraftgineer Studios!

As soon as I saw this Swirly Snowman, designed by Kraftgineer Studios, I knew I had to have him! I had picked up a little red cutting board from the Dollar Tree and thought he would be great to decorate it. The svg file cut beautifully with my Cricut Explore. Weeding was a little tedious on the hat but the rest of the image weeded easily. And the results were beautiful!

I added a few snowflakes from one of my Cricut carts. Since this is for decorative purposes, I think I might add a little bling to the center of some of the snowflakes and top it off with a big bow on the handle!

If you'd like the design for yourself, look for Kraftgineer Studios on facebook!

Christmas Thank You Cards

A teacher friend wanted some Thank You cards for her students who will be giving her gifts for the holidays. She likes to write the notes and send them home with the students. The Present Card from the Anna Griffin Christmas Kitsch cart was perfect! I sized the cards to be 3 x 3 inches in Design Space and they cut beautifully. All of the little tiny circles were perfectly round. I did use the Hide Contour feature in Design Space to hide the circles and for those cards, I used the liner on the outside! Here are a few and I'll be making more of them before the holidays arrive!
