Going Nuts Card -Printable Version

   We hope you enjoyed our last “Going Nuts” Card. If you thought about making it but don’t have an electronic cutter, we have created this printable version just for you.
   We highly recommend you purchase a Cricut machine when you can. It is tons of fun!

   Taking your own pictures is the ultimate source for nature images. If you unable to get the shot you want, magazines, catalogs, and old calendars make excellent sources for art work. Some libraries have book sales as fund raisers and this is our favorite source of inexpensive picture books.
   You can just use ordinary scissors on this project yet we love our ceramic rotary blade for cutting. It is long lasting which saves you money AND you can use it on paper and card stock one day and then cut fabric without ever changing the blade which saves you time. Time and Money saved – what a bargain!
   We also like Creative Grid rulers for their grippies that prevent slippage. We also get a lot of mileage from add an eighth and add a quarter rulers, the later is our favorite.

The abbreviation SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphic. Basically its a type of image file. Behind the scenes, your Cricut machine uses a SVG file as a set of instructions to tell it where to make the actual cuts. Think of an SVG file as a template instead of a picture. Our above video demonstrates this with a puzzle template . Check our library often to find new svg files including a puzzle template which is coming soon.
