I Made a Video Tutorial on How to Make these Greeting 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 !
Cutting the parts with the Cricut machine.
Cut the Base for the greeting cards.
Cut the base for the cards using the Cricut Maker machine.
You can use the designs I’ve created free of charge 🙂
This particular page was ruined by my cricut as you can see in the last picture 😀 My fault though, as I’ve set the machine on to much pressure ( we live and learn! ).
You Can Use Any Colours You’d Like Btw.
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 😀
Tip: I’ve washed my cutting mat with some warm water and soap and after it worked just fine.
Creating beautiful greeting cards.
Fold the Coloured Cardstock.
- Gather your supplies in one place.
- Fold the card along the scoring lines you’ve got from the cricut machine.
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 😀
Cutting the Other Circle With an Excel Knife.
No worries 🙂 I’ve got my Excel Knife which works smoothly! I love them blades 🙂

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 ).
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 ).
Add some embellishments to make it prettier. I’ve added a little message and a button on top.
Congrats! You just made some beautiful greeting cards 🙂
Everyone has a lot of paper at home but few of us know that paper is a source of never-ending fun and creativity.
