First locate the cut line on your cutting mat. It will be easy to see the edge of where the blade will cut when you have a used mat like this one.
Once you have located the cut line on your mat, position a folded piece of cardstock on the mat, with the folded edge just below the cut line.
I cut the mitten shape from page 79, Accent 2, at 5 1/4". You'll need to use the Multi Cut feature since you're cutting through 2 sheets of paper.
Once it's cut, you'll have a section at the top that still has the fold in it since it was below the cut line. So now you have a shaped card! Easy, huh?
Next, all you have to do is decorate it and you're done! Here is how my mitten card turned out after I added some layers and trimmings.
I hope you'll try this fun and easy way to make a shaped card out of almost any Cricut cut. You could try this with a kite or balloon Cricut cut and enter it in our Spring is in the Air challenge this week!
