Cutting AC Cardstock using a Cricut Explore Air and some tips and tricks.

So I had a question last week on what settings do I use to cut AC Cardstock both the 80lb weight as well as the AC Glitter Cardstock. So thought I would do a quick tutorial showing the cutting process as well as some tips and tricks.

Nautical Card

Today I am bringing you a card I made for the Anthony's Paper Craft Design Team.


For this card I used several elements from the June Stamp of the Month for Anthony's Paper Craft called Nautical 1.  The stamp of the month means if you order this stamp set within the month of June 2019 this and your entire order will ship free within the U.S. (see site for details).


Below is a photo of the sizes and shapes used in creating this card. The elements to the right with no dimensions were cut using my Silhouette Cameo. 


After stamping all my designs I just layered the card up as in the photo. I did add the white cardstock that I stamped with the lighthouse onto the inside of the card. To finish it off I wrapped some string around the layered anchor piece and added a few rhinestones in a golden color along with a couple black.

Triple Time Stamping Coffee Card

Hi All! 

While this technique is not a new one it is a new one for me and I love the way it turned out. I am going to try to explain it here in this blog post but if you would like a video tutorial please let me know and I can create one! :) 


The 'ingredients' are:
Off White American Crafts Cardstock
  • 2" x 3-1/4"
  • 3" x 4-1/4"
  • 4" x 5-1/4"
Chocolate Brown American Crafts Cardstock
  • 2-1/4" x 3-1/2"
  • 3-1/4" x 4-1/2"
  • 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (fold for card base)
Vintage Photo Distress Ink
A piece of twine or string to wind around the card a few times.
A Button.
Temporary Adhesive.
ATG Gun

I took the off white card stock and stacked the 3 together centering them and used the temporary adhesive to keep them together. 

Next I stamped my images onto the off white cardstock using the Vintage Photo Distress Ink. 

After I let the ink dry I removed the panels and layered them onto the brown cardstock as shown in the photo. Before adhering the last panel onto the card base I wrapped my twine around several times and then fed the ends through the button and tied a bow. I then applied that layer to the card base. 

And there you have it! A super easy to make card that I think looks amazing! Perfect card to give a gift card to your friends favorite coffee shop!
