My Cricut is one of the most used accessories in my craft room. A Cricut card is so ridiculously easy to make. I probably use this for almost every project that I make incorporating vinyl, dimension, or an already pre-designed project from design space. With so many holidays coming up, you cannot have enough cards. Typically around this time of year I begin making cards for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Easter. It makes it less stressful when the time comes around plus I DESPISE buying store bought cards. They are generic and cost 8.00 each, I would rather put that money toward the gift! Plus I enjoy making them.
Cricut Design Space
I cannot begin to explain how many options that you have with the online creation station that is Cricut Design Space. A Cricut card is just a drop in the bucket for what this machine can actually accomplish. It is an infinite option of possibilities to create, do or make. I used the Coin Purse pre-made project to make the following cards. I changed out the paper and used different embellishments and came up with three really different cards with the same exact template. This card is precious, and simple. I would love to get this card from someone.
I chose this card and the program tells you the amount of paper you need and what size of paper is appropriate. You load your paper and cut out the shapes. I added an envelope to the project afterwards and cut the envelope out of coordinating paper stock that was dual sided so the inside of my envelopes have pretty designs on them. You just can’t make this stuff up, its a true story! Don’t let the Cricut intimidate you it is an awesome tool and worth every penny.

Layered Floral Card
I selected the second card in mind for Mother’s Day and this was also a pre-made template. Chose, cut, adhered. That is it, super simple. This one an envelope was incorporated into the template so I did not have to add an envelope at the end.
Can you imagine never buying envelopes again? I don’t have to. I can make envelopes of any shape, color or need with my Cricut. Super awesome and convenient.
