Shutter Flap Valentine - Including FREE Cricut Design Space Cutting File!

Hello Everyone! It's been a long time since I posted at this blog. I'm back at it and today I want to tell you about a cool 3D Interactive card that I stumbled across while scanning through videos on YouTube. Ann who runs Creatively Papercraft on YouTube showed how to make this really fun Shutter flap card. It was a fair amount of manual work so I decided to convert it to a Design Space File. The links to the files can be found at the bottom of my post.

I have joined the Bitten by the Bug 2 blog challenge team. You'll see posts from me every two weeks following the challenge. The theme kicking off today is Valentine Hearts. Please check them out and join in the challenge! Click here to visit the blog: Bitten By the Bug 2 Blog To play along, you just need to link up a project that meets the theme and is made with a Cricut machine.

Here is what the card looks like from above. You can see how nicely it stands and how dimensional it is.

Here's the card in action!

I've got two versions of Design Space files for you. One can be used without a Cricut Access subscription. The other requires a Cricut Access subscription. The difference between the two is that the Access required file includes more complex embellishments since I could pull from the subscription image database.

To see all the pieces and a construction tutorial, click on the video to be taken to my channel. For those that can't use that feature, here is a clickable link:  Shutter Flap Valentine Tutorial

I hope you have fun with these. Have a great day!
