Step 2: Cutting The Design

Before moving any further, we are going to save our design. To do that:

1- Click on Save link on the top right corner of the Design Space and Add a descriptive name and click on Save Green Button.

2- Now that our project is saved, we need to make sure that our right machine is selected, to that, we click on the link next to the Make Green Button and from the options listed, we choose the one that we are going to use. In our case it is the Maker.

3- We can start cutting by clicking on the Make Green Button. 

4- We are going to see on the next page, that we have 1 cut page per cardstock color, in our case 6 colors/sheets. (You can have more or less, based on your choice!)

5- You need to check the Material Load type and the Material Size. In our scenario, we are using a Light Blue cutting mat 12 x 12. So there is no need to change the configuration.

6- We are going to click on Continue and in here, we are going to click on “Browse” to be able to choose the material type that we are going to use and start cutting our design, we are going to search the material using the word “cardstock”,

💡Tip:  If you do not know how to search the material, please refer to this document

7 – Now let’s start cutting the design.

9 – After all the cuts are done, we are going to obtain different parts related to our cricut cuts.

 At last minute, I figure it out that I did not have enough of the colors, so I change them as you can see, that is why we always mentioned in our different tutorials, that the colors that you used during the Design Stage in Design Space are not the ones that you are going to cut / draw / score. So always keep in mind that you can change your mind just before starting the cutting process and that is OK!
