hearts entwined (SCAL 2)
I was reading a book about card making last night and saw a design that I loved. Of course, there was no pattern or cutting file, just the idea. So I thought, time to use my imagination and my Cricut. In order to do that, I first had to make use of SCAL 2.
I have to admit that I never really loved Inkscape. The whole thing about creating files on that software seemed clunky and too complicated. SCAL 2 has many of the same capabilities and is SO much easier to use.
I expanded upon the idea and created a panel of hearts within circles. Hearts and circles have always fascinated me, mostly because of their geometric properties. The combination proved irresistible. Here is what I came up with.
In order to be successful with this project, you should have a sharp blade and a sticky mat. When you cut this, please be very careful when removing it from your cutting mat. Some of the parts of this design are very narrow.
I’ve also included a mat that fits the piece just right, and you can adhere the panel to it and create a lovely card decoration. Here it is:
Since Valentine’s Day is getting close, I wanted to post this for you as soon as I did the test cuts. Soon, I’ll show you what I do with these files. In the meantime, please help yourself to the files by clicking on the link below:
