I was given the adorably sweet “I like you more than Ice Cream” greeting card to create. This project is a great starter project for using the Maker. It is simple, has easy to follow instructions and who doesn’t like having greeting cards on hand?!
The only hiccup that I encountered was the photo showed an envelope liner, but the project did not come with one. I’ve adjusted my instructions to account for that. I did let Cricut know about the missing element, so hopefully they’ll be able to get that fixed.
In addition to the Cricut Maker, you will need:
Cardstock in the following colors: Cream, Pink, Red, Tan and Polka Dot
Black Cricut Pen
Spray Adhesive (optional)
Double Stick Tape (optional)
Find the project in Design Space and click MAKE IT. The project is already set-up for you, so make sure your connected to your machine and have all your materials, because we’re getting started RIGHT NOW!
Place the cardstock that coordinates with the cut on the screen onto the mat andi insert into the machine. Follow the machine prompts to change the cardstock, and insert the stylus and pen into the left side of the adaptive tool system.
Now that all of the card elements have been cut, it is time to assemble.
Use foam dots or a glue stick to attach the ice cream scoop to the inside of the cream card.
Attach the cone with spray adhesive or a glue stick to the front of the cream card, next to the words.
Attach the cherry using a foam dot.
Fold the card and the envelope along the score lines. Use a glue stick or double stick tape to secure the envelope.
That’s all there is to it! Now you have the first of many Cricut Maker made cards to add to your stockpile for when you need them!
