I was cleaning and straightening my craft room today and came across remnants of two failed Valentines that I tried to make. They were center step cards that I cut on my cricut without having checked the pressure settings. The cuts didn’t go all the way through the card stock, and it was such NICE paper, a beautiful, deep, rich red, that I had been saving because it was so pretty. So I tried to cut it with regular scissors, and I cut around the perimeter of the card just fine, but those two side cuts didn’t work out so well — jagged, uneven, not straight . . . Needless to say, I was furious and left it on my desk unfinished.
Well, today dawned clear and bright, and I was cleaning my craft room, and all the pressure was off because this Valentine’s Day is past, so I picked it up again. I got out the little paper cutter that came free with my Your Story laminator, straightened out the cuts, and put the cards together. I even used some leftover cuts I had in my stash: hearts from who-knows-where and this fancy double heart from Paper Crafting World.
