Cricut Card Ideas for an Easy to make Happy Spring card
The calendar says the spring is officially here so I decided to welcome it with a "Welcome Spring" card. This is very easy to make using my Cricut Create Personal Cutting Machine and the Cricut Cartridges that go with it.
Cartridge: Spring Holiday Cards
Card Size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Blade Depth: 2
This is a great little cartridge from Cricut. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles that some of the Cricut Cartridges have but it does allow for a cute card that is easy to make. You can add embellishments and colors to jazz it up a bit.
Spring Holiday Cards
This is a fun little cartridge from Cricut called Spring Holiday Cards. Each key creates a intricate cutout for the holiday in the spring. Then you simply create a background for behind the cutouts. There are small notches in each background for the cutout to slip right into. It could even be used as a placecard for a spring holiday table or an invitation.
Step by Step Directions
Step 1 Cutting out the shapes
Cut 1 <Easter10>, Size 4" This is the "Happy Spring" cutout
Cut 1 <Bckgrnd8>, Size 4" This is the background placeholder for "Happy Spring"
Cut 4 <Seal4>, Yellow Cardstock, Size 3 1/2" These are the yellow tulip cutouts
Cut 2 <Seal4>, White Cardstock, Size 3 3/4" These are the White tulip cutouts
Cut 2 <Seal4>, White Cardstock, Size 4" These are the White tulip cutouts
Cut 2 <Seal4>, Green Cardstock, Size 4" These are the Green tulip cutouts
Adhering the Cutouts
Glue together the tulips
Glue the two 4" Green tulips to the two of the 4" White tulips, offsetting them a bit so the white peeks thru.
Glue two of the 3 1/2" Yellow tulips on top of the 4" Green tulips/White tulips.
Glue the two remaining 3 1/2" Yellow tulips on top of the two remaining 4" White tulips
Glue the <Easter10> cutout to the <Bckgrnd8> cutout, there are little slots for each corner to go in. Glue that to the card front, offset to the right.
Glue the tulips to the left side of the card, arrange them to make room for a sentiment as seen below.
If you have an acrylic stamp "Happy Spring", stamp it in between the tulip cutouts or you can neatly handwrite the sentiment.
If you choose, you can use a marker to color in yellow on the <Easter10> cutout.
Add a pretty bow to the top right of the card front. Tie the bow as you would for a gift, then flatten it out a bit and arrange it. I used 3/16" green ribbon.
On the back of the card, you can choose to stamp an image; showing you are the creator of the card.
You can create cards, envelopes, and boxes with this Cricut Cartridge, for the spring holidays. No book is needed as every image is a simple one-key procedure.
