Cricut Card Function on the New Paisley Cricut Cartridge

Here it is. the actual use of the Card Creative Feature on the brand new Paisley Cricut Cartridge.  This is just a basic card no extra embellishments or anything, though I have to admit, I have some cute ideas now for making these cards more than they seem 😉 😉

Check it out and let me know what you think – I like this cartridge a lot, but I don’t have it as a top favorite “need” in my life 😉 lol!  What I like is that there is a lot of dimension to each of the shapes with all the layering options. Yet at the same time cutting out all the layers when I just want to “get something done” takes time…depends on my needs at the moment.  Also, I love using my Cricut to make cards, and I just am not loving this card creative feature like I do on say, A Child’s Year or even Stretch Your Imagination. I am NOT complaining, just to be clear….I am just making my own personal thoughts known and I would LOVE to know what you think! 🙂

Have an AWESOME day!

  • Paisley Cricut Cartridge

  • DCWV Nana’s Kids Paper

  • Pop Dots


  1. I just recently found your blog, and I really like your projects. I also love how honest you are about the carts. Look forward to more! (Both projects and honesty!!)

  2. To tell you honestly, I have never cut a card with any of my cartridges. I got this cart specifically for the nesting dolls. Now I am curious to compare the various cards from each of the carts I own. I smell a new project….

  3. I am not so sure I like this feature! I don’t get how it is supposed to all come together, it doesn’t make sense to me. I wonder if they just didn’t “throw” it together to take up space. I sure wish they would have used the other card feature with the silhouette cut out! hmmm???

  4. This feature looks like one that needs to be played with a bit. Do like this cart. Lots of great cuts.Definitely on my wish list.

  5. I’m like you, Megan. I like to write on my cards and I didn’t see alot of room for that. You’re so brave to video projects that you’ve never done before! My projects (that I’ve never done before) usually end up in the trash!! LOL. Have a great day.

  6. I think it looks more like a photo frame than an actual card, love the purple paper! Megan I’m so excited got my email this morning, that my DVD is on its way, Yeah can’t wait. Thanks so much!!

  7. I’m not loving this feature’s alright but doesn’t thrill me. I think it would need some tweaking. Thanks for sharing it 🙂

  8. Umm, I’m not so sure about that either. lol. I have no idea. I’m so confused about it. How is it a card if you can’t write anywhere. 🙂 Thanks for showing us. I was even more lost yesterday.

  9. The jury’s still out on this one for me. Other carts have better options for cards.

  10. I have to agree with you and most everyone else. I am not loving that card feature. It seems really plain in comparison to the other card features. I do like all the other things though.

  11. Hi Megan, this definitely isn’t the best card feature, but it can work. I’d love to see a video of a card made with A Child’s Year…I haven’t used that function yet.

    Thanks for sharing your talents.

  12. That was a cute card! I have to agree, I’m not quite sure how I like that particular style of card. Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Megan, Greetings from N.J. I just got this cartridge & haven’t opened it yet. The graphics on the back looked really cute, so I am disappointed seeing this card feature which isn’t so great. I thought it would cut out kinda chunky, funky images like Hello Kitty. Rats!
    Oh well, just keep playing with it.I kinda feel that way about Accent Essentials, doesn’t trip my trigger if ya’ know what I mean.

  14. I just got this cartridge at M’s on Turkey day ~ I have found that the 4″ flower on the base card (with no cut-out) is adorable, and I love your take on using the pop dots.
    Each to their own, but I totally rock on your honesty, not cruel not judgemental just honest!!
    Keep, keeping it real.
    and as always, thanks for sharing.

    So glad to see this cartridge demo’ed. Not crazy about the card function. Will probably put it on the back burner.

  16. I looked at the construction and, no, it’s not a very good card as it is however, as an iris card centerpiece it would be great. I would cut it a little smaller (3 to 3 1/2 inches), make the iris background and save it in a box for when I needed a card. I could have a great looking card in just a few minutes for almost any event from ‘Get Well Soon’ to ‘A New Baby’ card.

  17. Elaine Swingle says:

    Not a fan of that card feature! On a more positive note… Got me the DCWV citrus pack and the animal crackers pack for 40% off at AC Moore today! WOOT WOOT!

  18. I agree with Cindy M, I think it would make a great photo frame card. You could put a message on a piece of card stock and then attach that to the back of the photo.

  19. this cart’s card function is different…

  20. maricella cruz says:

    i agree the card feature on this cart is not the best. But on the other hand i do like the cut outs it has maybe a little more twinking could be used on the Gyspy with this feature. And again thanks for sharing i always like your honstey about the features on the carts.

  21. Umm… not sure how I feel about this feature. I don’t have A Child’s Year or Stretch Your Imagination so I don’t know much about those card features. The doodlecharms card feature was a little tricky for me at first, but the more I play with it, the more I like it. Thanks for a great review!

  22. Wow! Just came across your website! Lots of great information here! Thanks so much for sharing!

  23. Kathy Burrow says:

    I think I would use the card feature for making frames for photos. Not sure about using it for cards.

  24. Kathy Hunter says:

    I like the idea someone had about using for iris folding. That would be kinda cool. You through me for a minute. I thought you were going in a totally different direction when you started using the pop dots. I thought you were going to cover the cutout with white card stock and then pop dot the flower on top of it. Hope that makes sense. I guess if you did it that way, then you would have room to write on it. I’ll have to try it and see how it looks. Thanks for the video. Keep them coming. They are so helpful and inspiring.


  25. Kathy Hunter says:

    Guess I can’t spell tonight. I meant you “threw” me for a minute.


  26. I am not sure how I feel about this cartridge, there are a few cute things on it but not sure I like that card feature. I am sure a lot of things can be done that would work, but would have to play with it a bit.
    Can’t wait for my dvd to arrive… weeeeheee!

  27. ShawnfromMn says:

    Thanks for your honest comments. I too have a problem with a big hole in the center of a card – where do you write??? There are workarounds but I think i will use this function to make frames for pictures instead of cards. Thanks for sharing your talents!!

  28. What about using it for a CD holder? Cover the whole with Acetate and seal the edges. Jsa=ust a thought. Hope it works cause theat was what I was looking for when I bought that cartridge. Well, and the nesting dolls.

  29. I too have some fustration with the card features that have cut out and not have a solid one as the cutout don’t seem to match up with what I need. I mostly make cards but sometimes take them into DS to hide the cuts so they are solid and then I can decorate the card front. Love your videos and have tried most of the projects and adapted some when I don’t have the correct cart.
