Today I want to share with you the card and envelope I created for my niece’s wedding. I used the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 Cricut cartridge for the phrases, Stretch Your Imagination for the bride and groom and the heart frame, and Art Philosophy or the heart shape. I sized and arranged everything in Cricut Craft Room before cutting the shapes.
For the first time, I used the TBBM2 cartridge to write on the envelope and the heart on the inside of the card. It was really quite easy with the Craft Room. I used Sharpie markers in my Cricut Expression 2 by replacing the blade housing with an Adjustable Marker Holder by Chomas Creations. It worked very well! I did add a piece of scratch paper to the inside of the envelope so the marker would not bleed through the back side of the envelope. Writing on the heart was a little bit trickier. I added the heart and the phrase to the virtual mat in CCR so that I could adjust the size of the heart to have the phrase fit inside. Next, I moved the heart image off the virtual mat so that I could write the phrase. Since I used 2 different cartridges, this is the only way I have figured out to be able to make the Cricut cut the image. Otherwise, I’d get an error message saying the wrong cartridge is installed. Once I had the phrase written, I moved the heart back to the virtual mat and them moved the phrase off to the side. Then I removed the Marker Holder and replaced the blade housing so I could cut the heart. This may sound complicated but it really was pretty easy! Let me know if you would like a better or more detailed explanation of how to do this.
One other little touch I added was to emboss a piece of vellum with the Cuttlebug Cross My Heart folder. I adhered this piece behind the bride and groom on the front of the card. A bit of red Stickles on the heart in the frame and some pearl dots on the corners finished off my card.
Have a fabulous weekend!
