GSD Cutting Files

Downloadable GSD Files

A wonderful collection of GSD files for your electronic cutting machine. I have sorted these patterns into different categories to make it easier for you to find what you're looking for. Find GSD format files for flowers, butterflies, birds, babies, ladies, men, and more. All the pictured items are created with GSD files available for purchase from craftsUprint.

Available from craftsUprint: twisted steampunk and roses gsd file.

The beautiful cards featured here will be suitable for a wide range of events and situations, ranging from birthdays, to Mother's Day, to Father's Day, to Christmas, to celebrating the birth of a new baby. Check the terms of service (TOS), as items made from many of these patterns are allowed to be sold at craft fairs if you'd like.

At the end of this article, I am also including some links to free GSD files for you to download.

GSD Files For Cards

Ways to use these cutting files:

  1. Use the card cut-outs as is
  2. Cut the card out of two different colors then attach them together (possibly slightly out of alignment) to give a border to the cut edge
  3. Use the card cut out like a stained glass window, allowing other colored papers to show through the holes
  4. Use the card cut-out as a template and use chalks, paint, embossing powder etc to make a picture on another piece of card below (which could be used as is or placed behind a clean second card cut-out).

Border Cards

Some of the GSD file featured here will cut a border along one side of your card, leaving space for your own creativity. Ideas for using the blank area on border cards:

* leave it completely blank

* add a sentiment (on a label, handwritten, stamping, or stickers)

* add a photo or other picture

* add 3D elements (purchased, made with punches, quilling, or made with GSD files)

* add ribbons, buttons, faux pearls
