It is that time of year, when love is in the air and couples are getting married. I made this Cricut Wedding Card for a couple that I’ve known for quite a few years. My daughter has been friends with the groom since middle school. He used to ride to school with us, and the two of them got into a lot of mischief during high school! His bride graduated with my daughter, we’ve known her for many years too. This double heart die cut is from the Wedding Solutions Cricut Cartridge. The cartridge is no longer available, but there are great images on Tie the Knot Cartridge, Cricut® Sweethearts Cartridge, Divine Wedding, and Formal Occasions that would work great for wedding cards and bridal showers.
Supplies needed to make this Cricut Wedding card:
- 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ White Cardstock for card base
- 5 1/4″ x 4″ Black Cardstock for Mat
- 5 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ Silver Cardstock*
- 5 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ Black Cardstock
- 5 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ Patterned paper
- 3 1/2″ Double Hearts Die Cut from the Wedding Solutions Cricut Cartridge
- Decorative Border Punch
- Adhesive pearls
- Petite Wishes Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up
- Label Punch from Stampin’ Up
- Basic Black Ink Pad from Stampin’ Up
- Ranger Ink – Liquid Pearls – Dimensional Paint – White Opal
- Scrapbook Adhesive
- Dimensional Tape or Pop Dots
*I have used a decorative punch to add a border on each side of the silver paper. The scallop that I used is not very wide. If you have a punch that makes a wider border, you will have to adjust the width of your paper to accommodate it.
SPECIAL NOTE: It is difficult to find the exact supplies that I use in my cards. I often have no idea what brand my patterned papers are. Sometimes, I will be making a card at a crop and get the paper from someone’s scrap pile! Change the papers, colors, die cuts, and embellishments that work for you. If you like the layout of this card, but you need a baby card, use your Cricut to cut out Winnie the Pooh instead, changing the paper colors to match.
Instructions for making Cricut Wedding Card:
- Fold the white cardstock base in half.
- Using scrapbook adhesive, attach the black mat to the front of the card.
- Make a decorative border on the silver cardstock using a border punch, and attach it to the card.
- Adhere the black cardstock strip on top of the silver.
- Add the patterned paper to the black cardstock.
- Using Pop dots or dimensional tape, attach the heart die cut to the card. I positioned it so that I would have room for a sentiment in the lower left corner.
- Stamp Best Wishes onto white cardstock and punch out using a label punch. The one I used is from Stampin’ Up. I think it is retired, but I’m sure EK Success or Martha Stewart makes something similar. It’s hard to see in the photo, but I also punched a silver label and placed it under the sentiment. Attach them to the card with scrapbook adhesive.
- I used a thin Sharpie Marker to write their names on the heart.
- To finish the card, I added three pale pink adhesive pearls under the sentiment and dots of Opal White Liquid Pearls to the heart die cut.
- I had a strip of black cardstock and a piece of patterned paper leftover and added them to the inside of the card. I also stamped “For the New Mr. and Mrs.”
If you have a Cricut, I hope you use it! It was so much fun putting together a Cricut wedding card when I needed it! The best way to learn, is to try different things. It might take a little time to figure out the different features and layers, but you won’t be disappointed!
