Artfully Sent Details: Sleeve Cards

I'm so excited to finally have the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge in my hands and have been playing around with it. I can't wait to show you my creations. However, first I thought it would be helpful to share with you some details about how to make the various types of cards on this cartridge.

Earlier this week, I posted about the Pop-up and Scene Cards. You can use these links to learn more about these card types.

Today, I'm going to focus on the cards on the Sleeve function.

When you use the Sleeve function without shift, you can create cards designed to hold a 4" x 6" photo.

Each of these cards is cut on a single piece of paper and include a decorative front with solid back. There are tabs around the edges that you will fold down and adhere to create a sleeve for your picture.

They can also be sized down - the 3.5" size is perfect for a gift card!

Press the shift button with the Sleeve function and you can create 50 overlay cards! These cards are all 5" x 7" size. These cards are simply a flat piece with a cut overlay on the front and solid back.

You can add layers of paper and other embellishments both behind and on top of the front overlay. These cards do not include a sentiment so they can be used for all occasions!

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial for the Sleeve cards on Artfully Sent.
