Hi everyone! It’s Karin and today I’m going to show you how to make an easel card in Design Space using Lori Whitlock’s baby elephant easel card design from her SVG Shop. In the tutorial, I will teach you how to change the usual perforated score lines you have in SVG files to the special score lines that Design Space uses. Also, I have some really good news about that — they have improved the scoring function of the machine by having the scoring stylus pass over all score lines twice. This now creates a really nice, deep score line. Wait till you see it in the video.
If you could see my office/studio/craft room, you would know that I really need to use up my stash. I have ridiculous amounts of patterned paper so that is exactly what I’m doing today.
The patterned paper I’m using today is from a Best Creations collection named Safari Boy. I did a quick search and found that you can find some pieces of it on eBay and Amazon, but not much. I’m sorry if you are hoping to find this paper, but I think we can all stand to use something from our stash (wink wink).
The blue card stock I’m using is from American Crafts Tropicalscollection. The brown papers are Recollections brand from Michaels. All of these papers cut beautifully in the Cricut Explore.
In addition to teaching you how to upload and cut the pieces for this card, I will teach you how to change the perforated scoring lines to the Design Space scoring lines that are scored with the scoring stylus.
The video below takes you through all these steps.
