Step 1: I Made a Video Tutorial on How to Make These Beautiful Cards!

For some people it's easier to watch a video than following step by step photos :)

So if you are one of them I hope that this video will help you !

Step 2: Cut the Base for the Cards.

Cut the base for the cards using the Cricut Maker machine.

You can use the designs I've created free of charge :)

The base: https://design.cricut.com/landing/project-detail/...

This particular page was ruined by my cricut as you can see in the last picture :D My fault though, as I've set the machine on to much pressure ( we live and learn! ).

Step 3: You Can Use Any Colours You'd Like Btw.

I was making more cards for an Explosion Box order that I had from Etsy.

Step 4: Cut the Design Paper.

Design Paper: https://design.cricut.com/landing/project-detail/...

Make sure your cutting mat it's sticky enough. I've ruined some paper while I was doing these cards :( You can see in the pictures one of the unfortunate scenarios :D

Tip:I've washed my cutting mat with some warm water and soap and after it worked just fine.

Step 5: Fold the Coloured Cardstock.

  • Gather your supplies in one place.
  • Fold the card along the scoring lines you've got from the cricut machine.

Step 6: Preparing the Design Paper.

  • Fold the circles in half.
  • Cut them in two with a cutter.

Oh...no! If you seen the video, my cutter let me down as well :D

Step 7: Cutting the Other Circle With an Excel Knife.

No worries :) I've got my Excel Knife which works smoothly! I love them blades :)

Step 8: Stick the Design Paper on the Base.

You can use pva glue as I've used in this particular case or if you want an easier way, use adhesive rollers ( see the tools and supplies section ).

Step 9: Add a Picture or a Message.

I've used an adhesive roller to stick the picture but you can use what kind off glue you want ( don't use liquid glue ).

Step 10: Final Touches.

Add some embellishments to make it prettier. I've added a little message and a button on top.

Step 11: Congrats! Your Card Is Ready :)

Everyone has a lot of paper at home but few of us know that paper is a source of never-ending fun and creativity.
