In this project, we’ll make a simple card and you’ll get a quick look at how to cut cardstock using your Cricut. I’ll also show you how to get neat and clean cuts when cutting out small detailed objects like flowers, using the intricate cut settings.
Cutting out the paper by hand can be extremely time-consuming at times. Plus, it’s so hard to cut all these small details perfectly because it applies so much pressure on your hands. This is why you need to learn to use your Cricut to do the work for you.
