As I’ve brought up in the past, when I first started making cards I had no idea what a Cricut machine was.  I did all of my cards by hand with my Cuttlebug, a paper cutter, dies, ink, stamps and many others.   

I started with your basic fold card but wanted something more. 

My new favourite thing was making fancy fold cards, such as the Double Easel Card, Gate Fold, the Z Fold and accordion fold to name a few.  Previously, I used my paper cutter and bone folder tool to create these fancy folds.

Now, I use my Cricut Explore Air 2, which is a game-changer.  I can now very simply create the card using basic shapes and score lines in Cricut Design Space.  No need to create an SVG in Photoshop or Inkscape or even purchase an SVG.  It’s easy, peasy in Design Space.

This week, we will create two fancy fold cards using our Cricut Machines and I will take you through a step-by-step tutorial on the easiest guide to creating these gorgeous creations.
