Key Problems When Designing Or Cutting A Paper Cut Or Vinyl Decal On A Cricut Machine
Making The Paper Cut Or Vinyl Decal To Complicated
Its ok to go for detail if you are cutting your image larger. However for smaller cuts ensure the detail is not too difficult to cut, or indeed weed.
Not Connecting The Image Correctly
To build your image use the group tool this is easy to undo. Once you are happy with your cut weld it together. Ensure your image is fully connected, or you may lose part of it in the cut.
Your Cutting Mat Not Being Sticky Enough
If your cutting mat has debris on it, or has lost its stick then your card could come unstuck or slide part way through your cut. There are some useful suggestions here on how to re-stick your mat.
Smart vinyl is a great option for making vinyl decals on the Cricut Joy, check out how I made a large vinyl wall decal with the Cricut Joy.
Card Stock Being To Thick
The thicker the card stock the harder it is to cut a clean image. I find working on a thinner grade card works so much better, even thicker paper. However if you want to work with a thicker card I set my material as foil poster board and my pressure on more for a cleaner cut. This also makes it easier to weed.
Debris On Your Cutting Blade
If your blade is blunt or has debris on it then it will not cut cleanly, check your blade before cutting.

Other Uses For My Free Floral Alphabet Templates
It’s wonderful for making paper cuts and sliced into banners for hanging banners. (Although some of the images will need connecting once sliced, I will create a post on this soon)
However can also be used for cutting vinyl. I found the letter was easier to weed on vinyl. I was also able to cut the vinyl letters much smaller than I would have been able to on card, yet the cut was still sharp.
