Dress Up Cricut Shapes
There is so much to love about being a CTMH Consultant. The thing I love the most is feeling like I’m part of a huge family. For instance, consultants have a private discussion board where we share ideas and seek feedback on artwork. Recently, the fantastic Adeline Brill requested testers for her new Cricut class. I was more than happy to help.
Her instructions were designed for the original Expression, but I have the E2. As an intermediate Cricut user, I like the challenge of figuring out the E2 menu system as it definitely differs from the dials and buttons on the Expression. I’m looking forward to blogging about some of the tips and tricks I learned. I may even try to shoot a video using the Cricut pens since those were new to me!
Until then, I want to share a quick tip for dressing up your Cricut shapes. Often a shape cut out of cardstock can lack the texture needed to make it pop on a patterned piece of paper. To add a bit of dimension to the borders cut with Artiste and Art Philosophy, I stamped them in a coordinating ink using the In the Background stamp set. I love how the subtle color variation adds depth to the border.
