Bendy Card and Cricut Explore Share

Yesterday I gathered together with Close To My Heart consultants for a unit meeting. I had requested a demonstration from my upline, Joyce, on how she made this card. The whole time we were using paper trimmers, scissors and as x-acto knife a few of us thought how much faster this could be if there was a cut file for our Cricut Explore! So yesterday I used shapes from Artiste and Art Philosophy to make a bendy card base. Here is how it looks in Cricut Design Space:

The green pieces will be the card base. The front pieces that bend have score lines for where they can be folded and adhered to the back of the main piece. The pink pieces will be the the decorative panels. Both the green and pink pieces have cut lines for where the tabs insert. The yellow pieces are decorative pieces to put on the back and hide the "mechanics" of the card. If none of the embellishments stick out then the card will fit in a standard envelope. This file is sharable but you need to have CTMH cartridges Art Philosophy and Artiste as well as the Cricut Explore and Design Space software. Here is the project link. Make sure to stop by again on Tuesday, June 10 for the Joyful Stars June blog hop. I have another bendy card to show!
