Pop ups with Cricut Design Studio

January 25, 2009 at 6:04 am 15 comments

I am predominantly a Mac user, so I don’t mess with Cricut Design Studio much, but I thought I would try out the pop up card technique so those without SCAL can play along. Here were the results:

and here’s a screen shot (colors are reversed…the outside of the card is on the right):

You can download the .cut file here. Cartridge is Plantin Schoolbook. The finished card is A2 size so you can just use a half sheet of card stock for the outside instead of cutting one with the Cricut as I did above. For instructions on how to assemble the card, check the references on my earlier post about pop ups.

    Hi:
    I was so excited when you responded to my email requesting Valentines ideas. This is exactly what I wanted. I love pop-up cards. I immediately jumped on my Cricut and downloaded the file into DS. I hit cut, and off it went. Unfortunately everything did cut except around the letters. (I can send a picture to show you what happened?) Do I need to so something before I hit cut? I love this card and I was going to show my Cricut Club how great this machine is. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    thanks for sharing,
