First time I have welded objects together, it made the standard design so much more my individual design, just loved it and so simple. I used Cricut Mini Elegant cartridge, and Picturesque cartridge. I also made the engagement congratulations card in the same way, but instead of butterflies I added birds and the word congratulations.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • gold card
  • green/black glittered paper
  • pink glittered paper
  • white card
  • Glue

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Step one is for the same for the small green/black butterflies and the pink butterfly card. I used Cricut mini Elegant cartridge and use the lattice of the lantern size 8.5 inches, after putting that onto Cutting mat on Cricut Craft Room. I then loaded 4 Acanths2 from Picturesque cartridge onto the mat size 1.3 inches, in order to use one in each corner of the lattice, I used the first as it was, then the second I flipped over horizontally, the third I flipped over horizontally and then again vertically and then the fourth I flip over vertically. I then was able to place one in each corner of the lattice. I clicked weld after placing each of the Acanths2 in its correct place.
Step 2 This is where the instructions for the two cards vary. For the green/black little butterflies card. I put 3 of the blackout bttrfly 1.5 inches. I manipulated them on the card until I was satisfied that they were in the place that I felt showed them off to their best. I clicked weld at every opportunity.
Step 2 For the pink butterfly card. I put one basic bttrfly 3inches into the middle of the lattice. I clicked weld.
Step 3 For which ever of the cards I was making at the stage of having added the butterflies or butterfly, depending on the card you are making, I then cut the image that I had on my Cricut Craft Room mat in gold card.
Step 4 I cut the lip edge off the image. This lip was there in order to make it into a lantern, but as I was making cards, this lip wasn't required. I then glued the cut image onto the glitter paper and then onto the white card to make the card.
Step 5 For the Pink card only I cut out in the gold card Happy Birthday. I worked out where I wanted to place the words on the card and cut the lattice away from behind where the words were going to go. I then glued on the words, hoping that it looked like they were part of the overall lattice design, seemed to work.
Step 6: I made the engagement congratulations card in the same way as the butterfly cards, but instead of butterflies I added birds and the word congratulations.
