CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Brown Cardstock
  • Pink Cardstock
  • Decorative Cardstock
  • White Cardstock
  • Decorative corner punch
  • Scissors
  • Glue pen
  • Glue
  • Cricut Font & Basic Shapes Cartridge
  • Fiskars Cutting board

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

In your Cricut Craft Room use the Cricut Font and Basic Shapes cartridge and use the rounded rectangle shape to weld together three rectangles of different height (but same width) leaving space to add your letters. Then with the extreme fonts type out Happy, Birth, and Day!, and weld each saying to the top of the rectangles. *Note: Don't forget to make the word Birth backwards as it will be folded as seen in the picture. Also cut 19th Birthday megan and design element to go on slider envelope.
With your Cricut cut the constucted base of the card and slider envelope elements out of brown cardstock. I set the blade depth to 3 and pressure to 3. Take the base of the card and use a cutting board to lightly score the edges of the center rounded rectangle to ensure nice clean folds on your card.
In CCR make another layer with three rounded rectangles one set to fit on the first rounded rectangle and two to fit on both sides of the second rounded rectangle of the card and size a design frame (I used one from graphically speaking) and name to fit on the third rounded rectangle. Also add a regular rectangle sized to fit on top of the slider envelope. Cut these out of decorative cardstock with your Cricut.
With your Cricut, cut a slider envelope template with the pink cardstock from the Going Places Cartridge large enough to fit the card (when folded) inside but leave room for the Happy to stick out the top. Then cut a white rounded rectangle to fit on the decorative paper rectangle for the inside of the second largest brown rounded rectangle in the card. After all paper is cut, take a decorative corner punch and use according to the pictures attached. Also for the decorative rectangle that will go on the slider envelope, take scissors and cut a notch to align with the notch in the slider envelope.
Glue all peices accordingly, using the glue pen for decorative pieces and letters on the slider envelope. *Note: Top piece of exclamation mark needs to be glued to the paper that will be behind it. Wait for glue to dry then slide card into envelope.
