Today I’m sharing the “sister” project to the birthday balloon card that I featured earlier this week. This card, though nearly identical to the previous card, uses a different supply list to cut the felt to make this card have other textures than only the card stock. The felt and baker’s twine help to give this card a fun 3D effect that looks like it costs more than it really does.
- Cricut Maker machine
- Cricut Rotary Fabric Blade
- Cricut FabricGrip Cutting Mat
- Cricut card stock in white and (2) other colors
- Glue stick or craft glue
- Card blank – I used a brown card blank but any color will work.
- Baker’s twine
- Hot glue gun and hot glue stick
I made this card after being inspired by this card at Jennifer McGuire Ink. I didn’t have any ink on hand as she uses in her project, but with a little designing in Cricut Design Space, the partial balloon was simple to make.
For more information on using the Cricut Maker along with the Cricut Rotary Blade, see this informative post here.
One of my favorite aspects of making cards is the ability to personalize aspects of the card. For instance, if your recipient like a certain color, use it in the project.
Open up Cricut Design Space. Use my already prepared design file to make this project quick and easy. Access the file by clicking here. Click “Customize” rather than “Make It.” When the design canvas with the project appears, make sure that the size of the card design will fit on the front of the card blank. The design should fit on the front with a small border around the design that shows the card blank.
Follow the instructions in Cricut Design Space to cut all the pieces as prompted.
Once all of the pieces are cut, use the glue stick to carefully assemble the card.
- Glue the white background to the front of the card.
- Glue the balloon piece at the top of the white background.
- Use the hot glue gun to glue the baker’s twine coming from the bottom of the balloon.
- Carefully glue the “Birthday Wishes” in the desired spot on the card.
