    Default My first cricut card

    Ok, well to tell the truth, this is my second but the first was very simple and I mailed it immediately without taking a picture (thank you to my mom for giving me the cricut).

    Anyway, here is my card. I was just having lots of fun playing with it. I used Storybook cartridge and Plantin Schoolbook (think that is right title).





    Oh, and I had a hard time getting the paper to pop out of those small holes. It wasn't always cut all the way. She I adjust the needle more or something? I think I had it on 4 and this is cardstock.

    Cute cards. On it not cutting, the 4 is the just the blade. You need to adjust the pressure and speed dials. I usually have the pressure on med or high for cardstock and a slower speed. HTHs

    that looks great!

    for cardstock, I always have the pressure on 4. I usually have the speed on 3-4.

    if you cut vellum, change the speed to high, seems to be less prone to ripping at a higher speed.

    Very nice!!!

    I agree with the other ladies who said higher pressure and lower speed for thicker cardstock...and vice versa for thin paper, vellum, freezer paper for shirts, etc.
