Make A Father’s Day Card

Making my own cards appeals to me, I like spending time being creative and doing something personal.

The trouble is I’m not artistic, I can’t draw to save my life and I have limited ability when it comes to creativity, I need as much help as possible.

This is where the Cricut comes in. I design it on the computer and it then does the hard work of cutting out the designs, it can write too.

How To Make Cards With Cricut

Making cards with the Cricut is so simple. It does the hard work; the crafty aspect and it allows me to make my crafting look amazing.

The Cricut machine is an investment, but one that you will use all the time, some people actually use theirs as part of their business, making and creating for other people and do very well from it too.

You just need to log into your Cricut Design Space, find the project you want to tackle, and follow the on-screen instructions, it is that simple.

Making Cards With Cricut

There are so many different options that you can do with a Cricut that I’m really just beginning.

It’s going to be something that whilst I learn what I can do you will be able to see my projects and see how my crafting skills improve, as well as my confidence.

The card option I chose for this project was the Dad Hipster Card, this did cost, it’s not free to get some of the designs from Cricut.

But they are good value, it depends on where in the world you are buying from as to the amount! I paid just £0.79 which in US dollars it’s $1.05 which is a good price for something you can use again and again.

Payment options: I paid with my card, it was simple and secure.

You can join the Cricut Design Space pay a monthly fee and get all your projects with the green logo for free. It isn’t much per month. At the moment I’m busy and I just wanted to choose the option to purchase as needed.

If I find in the future that I’m looking at more expensive projects, then I will think about the monthly investment rather than buying the projects one at a time.

Card Making With Cricut

Card-making with Cricut is not the only thing that you can do, this is just one small area that is a great place to start.

I liked the look of Dad Hipster card, Cricut is still a new tool to me and I’m still learning the best way to use it.

It’s just a 3-step card. Once you load the mat with the card and follow the on-screen prompts it’s simple to do.

Having cut all the cards, it was just a simple task of putting the cards together.
