But more than that, I am a self-proclaimed die-cutting enthusiast myself and I love creating different projects. One of the questions I’ve been getting all of the time is: how can I tell my cricut to draw so in today’s article I’m going to share with you exactly how to make a super easy Father’s Day card with one of our digital cut files that you Can get if you’re, a member of makers that I learned if you’re, not a member click, the link below come join us because it’s a lot of fun.
You get so many digital cut files and you can learn more about it link below. But let’s head on over to design space and start designing our card, okay, guys! What you see right now is that we’ve already uploaded our image from makers going to learn, and we already have a 4 by 4 card base designed and added the score line. It’s super easy to do this, I’m going to teach you both of this right now before we even talk about drawing.
So what you want to do is click upload and we’re going to upload the Father’s Day image and right here you can see we have it and drag it and drop it. So this is an exclusive cut file that you can only find at makers online, and I love this file because you’re able to create such a simple card with it and I love it so just like so you have it. So it’s right here on the map. We already have one side, so it’s good to go.
If you wanted to create the same card base, we have you want to click on, shapes, add a square and then what we’re going to do is we’re going to unlock right up here, and we want the width to be 4 inches by 8 and then press Enter and you can see here – we have that so we’re going to lock that and we can go ahead and make that widened. So we can visualize a little easier click shaves and let’s have a score line so right here we have this score line and we’re just going to rotate it just like so and then we’re going to take this over on our card and expand it out.
A little bit and then we’re going to select both of those layers, I accidentally selected what I didn’t need and we’re going to click a line in Center, just like so once that’s complete we’re going to click and attach and check this out guys. You have an awesome card ready to go and all we want to do is drag the happy Father’s Day over onto the card, just like 7, once you’re happy with the placement now we’re going to want to go ahead and change this from cut.
So when you upload a file straight to Cricut, it’s going to have the little scissors, and that means it’s going to cut in the layers panel. We want to click on that and we want to click it to right and then we’re going to click on the other layer and we’re going to have it right that as well. So now right now, this is going to have it cut all in one color. We want to tell it to write in two different colors, so let’s select the little tie, let’s change that color, so we’re actually using our calligraphy silver.
So I’m just going to slip a silver metallic and it’s going to draw silver metallic and then write in black happy Father’s Day, so didn’t create this project. The last step is we’re going to select both layers and we’re just going to select, attach that’s going to tell it to draw and cut right like we see it in design space to make sure that looks, good, we’re go, select, make it, and you can see Here it’s going to score, draw and then cut you can see this by going over to the left hand, side bar – and it’s going to tell us so if you’re happy with this, if everything looks good, really easy, we can click continue and then it’s connecting to Our machine via bluetooth and now we’re going to select our material we’re using a white cardstock that we really love.
We found it on Amazon and it’s perfect for printing cut, it’s perfect for drawing, and it’s just a really great go-to white cardstock. So we’re just going to select medium cardstock right here and it’s telling us that we need to load our scoring stylist in to clamp a so all we want to do is open, clamp, eight, like so grab our scoring stylist and we’re going to pop it into Place and once you’re ready, we can go ahead and take our mat.
We’ve placed our piece of cardstock here and we’re going to load it into the Michigan awesome, it’s loaded into the machine and now, lastly, we’re going to turn on fast mode and we’re going to press the flashing Cricket button awesome, so it all it did was to Do the score line, and now it’s telling us to stop it’s time to change out the tool. What we’re going to do is open, clamp, a pull out our scoring stylist and place it into the department, and now it’s saying that it wants us to add our silver metallic pin.
All we want to do is take off the lid and a fun tip is to place the lid on the top, because if your craft space looks anything like mine, you will lose it. So all we want to do is press this into the machine. Just like we did with the scoring stylist clamp a is so easy to work with and then we’re going to close it once that’s ready to go. All we want to do is press the flashing Cricket button again awesome it’s time for another tool change all.
We want to do is open, clamp, a pull out this pin and we’re going to put the cap back on it and then we’re ready to open our black pin just like we have done previous and pop it into place, and then, lastly, we’re going to close It and when you’re ready to go press the flashing Cricket button again awesome guys it’s done cutting. What we’re going to do is we’re going to add our map, and you can see here we have an awesome Father’s Day card.
What I love is that you can have the cricket draw cutting pages little cards. I think this would be awesome for the kids to be able to color in the Happy Father’s Day, and it would be a perfect little card that they’re able to give for Father’s Day. I love that we have this score line here, because it’s already creasing it for us, and now you have an awesome Father’s Day card. It’s super easy to make.
