"More on Cricut Print then Cut"
I have been playing with "Print then Cut" function of Cricut Design Space.
The more I play with it, the more I like it. The big thing is that Provocraft
seems to be hinting that more improvements are in the works. I sure hope
So, yesterday I tried to really given the Print then Cut update a real work
out. So far I have tried out various variations of printing then cutting images
contained in the image gallery and cartridges that I have purchased. When
the image prints out it has a heavy border around the image. Very
disconcerting to start, but, the heavy border is to allow the Cricut Explore
To cut close to the actual image.
The Halloween card shown below was made with the Print the Cut function.
The only item that had me worried was the spider web. It looked like one big
blob of black, but as you can see it cut out alright.
The other items were also cut with the Print then Cut function. The two that
are colored were from cartridges I have. The image of the girl with the
rufﬂed dress is a digital image that I bought and downloaded. Think of the
possibilities. You could size the image to the correct size, then print the item from Design Space then color it with your favorite coloring medium, mine is Copic markers. Then when you are
satisﬁed with it, put it on the mat and cut the colored image out. Walla, you
have a perfectly colored image that is cut and ready to use on a card. And,
no hand cutting. Yay!!!!
