Recessed Window Card & Tutorial

Someone on the Cricut mb posted this type of card they made after seeing it on the Splitcoaststampers website. I loved the card but didn't want to have to figure out the lines for the window everytime I wanted to make the card so I decided to make a .scut file for it. There is a page for scoring and for that I simply turned my cricut blade itself upside down in the housing and it scored the lines perfectly. I then used a .cut file from Okieladybug's blog for the Gusset Envelope so that the card would be protected. The card itself is a square 4.75 in. card and the envelope was cut at 5in. Below is a quick tutorial on how I put mine together. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

If you'd like this SCAL file please leave a comment with an email address that you'd like the file sent to. - Thank you
