Artfully Sent Details: Build-a-scene Cards

Have you heard the news that the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge is available?  While I'm waiting for my cartridge to arrive, I'm sharing some details about how to make the various types of cards on this cartridge.

Yesterday, I posted a tutorial on the Pop-up Cards on Artfully Sent

Today, I'm going to focus on the Scene or "build-a-scene" cards. There are three types of Scene cards.

This first type of card includes a main image that "swings" or moves when the card is opened or closed. All of the swing cards on Artfully Sent are designed to be cut 5" x 7". The Scene function is used to cut the base and the accompanying icons or inserts are on under other functions of the key

The second type of card found under the Scene function is a solid layer backdrop card. The back of these cards is solid and the scene is attached above it so that backdrop color shows through the negative spaces. These cards are varying finished sizes.

The final type of Scene card are the tri-panel cards. These cards contain three panels that fold atop one another to form scenes or greetings. These cards also vary in finished size.

All Scene cards have coordinating pieces found on the shift plus Scene function that are "linked images". This means you set the size dial once and cut all of the pieces to be proportional to each other. If you wish to cut a single image, you can use the Real Dial Size button to cut it exactly the size you want.

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial of the Scene card found on the Artfully Sent cartridge. Are you ready to order  your personal cartridge? Simply fill in the form below and I'll add this free stamp set if you pay before next Friday!
