DIY Your Own Cricut Cutaway Card

I was excited to see the Cutaway Card materials from Cricut. But, I have a few packs of insert cards. So I decided to do a DIY version of the cutaway card using the materials I had on hand. I actually used materials from two different card packs.

This is the insert card pack I started with and used a pink insert from a different pack. Recently I found the insert card pack at Hobby Lobby on clearance but you could use any cardstock materials.

I’ve missed using my Cricut Joy. It’s been a while. I used the Cricut Joy and its card mat to cut out the design. Using one of the new phrase designs from Cricut Design Space, I edited the image to change the words. See the video below to see how I edited the free file.

To make this work, I used transfer tape to hold the pieces in place. Originally I tried to transfer everything directly from the mat but that didn’t work. So, I removed the card with the transfer tape in place and then moved the pieces I wanted to keep with the card over. You can see the entire process in the video below.
