National Tea Day Cricut Card

Celebrating 2 of my favourite things – tea and Cricut!

I’m really excited to be taking part in a gifted Collaboration with Craft Label to celebrate National Tea Day with a Cricut Card.

Look at the pretties Craft label sent me! The paper pad is SO gorgeous. Each page is fabulous quality and the designs have a fresh and modern feel.

In case you didn’t know it tea is, in fact, always a good idea 🙂

My Husband brings me a cup of tea every morning. I know, he’s a keeper. But also I feel that he probably thinks it’s safest to get me caffeinated asap in the morning, LOL!

Of course I had to showcase those yummy papers.

Patterned paper, Scrapbooking paper, card making embellishments.

To make the card, start with a 6×6″ card base.

Cut the patterned paper mat at 5.5″ x 5.5″

Wrap the ribbon around the front and stick it to the front of the card. I cut my ribbon just a little wider than the card, then add some adhesive tape to the back of the patterned paper and press the ribbon down. This saves on ribbon and gives a neater finish.

The nesting oval shapes are actually a cut file from Design Bundles.

Look at all those shapes you get in the bundle! Just one of the many reasons why owning a Cricut machine is so worth it.

How to create the card in Cricut Design Space

Once you have downloaded your files from Design Bundles, select upload to choose the file from your computer ensuring that you have unzipped it first.

Start a new project and choose ‘upload’ from the left hand menu or your canvas.

The layers panel on the far right will show all the ovals in that set so you need to hide the ones you need by clicking the little eye icon.

I changed the colour of one oval as I wanted to cut them out of different papers. To change the colour go to Operation (next to undo and redo buttons) and click on the colour box.

Here’s how to grab the file that I used for today’s project.

From Your Canvas in Cricut Design Space type New Home in the search bar. (Check out all those categories 🙂 )

New home card, Cricut Design Space, Cricut Access, Cricut Access premium, Cricut Maker, Cricut Explore Air, Cricut Mug press,  SVG's, Cutting files, Vinyl.

Change the size of the ovals

Select one oval and with the padlock icon locked change the height to the values in the picture below.

IMPORTANT

Select the ovals individually and select attach in the bottom right bar. If you miss this step, the stitched effect will cut separately.

Add the sentiment

Select Images from the left tool bar and type ‘Tea is always a good idea’ in the search bar. Click insert and change to the size shown before.

You’re ready to cut!

TOP TIP!

Getting the die cut phrase onto your card may seem like an impossible task. Fear not!

Grab some Cricut Transfer tape and use it to pick the whole sentiment up. You will need to burnish with your scraper tool in the same way you would if you were picking up vinyl.

Once you have it on your transfer tape, turn it over and add glue to the back of the letters. You will find it helpful to use glue that dries clear and has a small nozzle.

Now simply press it onto your project. How easy was that?

I used Tonic Studios – Craft Perfect Electric Purple Mirri card for my sentiment.

Let’s finish the National Tea Day Cricut Card

Glue the patterned paper with the ribbon onto the front of the card.

Add the larger patterned paper oval.

Add the oval with the sentiment with 3D foam pads.

Tie a a small bow and add with glue dot.

Add 3 butterflies from the butterfly confetti and finish with purple gems. My gems are from the £1 shop!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stay safe.

Love,
