Milk and Cookies Cricut Greeting Card

Handcrafted Milk & Cookies Cricut Greeting Card

In last month’s blog article I share with you The Top 10  Requested Greeting Cards That Speak Volumes for Missionaries. If you haven’t read the article please take a moment to read it. In this months blog article I will share with you an adorable thinking of you Cricut greeting card that is just delightful to handcraft and share with the children in your life.

When I created this greeting card in Cricut Design Space, I didn’t have a die cut of a cookie so I created one out of die cuts I already paid for from previous cartridges. It is really simple to create a die cut of your own through Cricut Design Space.  To make a chocolate cookie die cut all you need is a large circle with several tiny circles then weld or punch the scalloped edge to the circle. You will see from the Design Space File that it is a print then cut file. If you don’t want to print this file and you would rather cut you are welcome to do so.

With just a few supplies you can make your own stationery for any occasion to Glorify God.

Handcrafted Milk & Cookies Greeting Card

Cricut Design Space

  • Cricut Design Space Cut File
  • Cricut Explore, Cricut Explore Air, or Cricut Maker Machine ( Cricut Design Space)
  • For the smaller pieces I used a two- way Zig glue pen.
  • Xyron adhesive machine ( Xyron creative or the Xyron X for tiny embellishments)
  • Printer with color ink for Cricut Machine Print then Cut feature
  • Yellow or orange card stock ( card base )
  • Pale yellow or light orange card stock
  • Light blue card stock
  • Medium blue card stock
  • White card stock
  • Peachy Keen Stamp of  your choice
  • White gel pen
  • Glossy accents

Directions:

Using your Cricut Die-cutting machine cut out all the card stock according to the Design Space directions. Once all the card stock is cut; begin adhering each piece according to the placement in the die cut. For the milk bottle I used Glossy Accents to make the straw shinny and stamped a cute Peachy Keen smile stamp face on the white card stock. In my opinion Peachy Keen Stamps are perfect embellishment for die cuts on children and youth greeting cards.If you don’t have all the supplies listed, have the liberty to play with your design.

Remember you make awesome cards!

Pro Stationery Tip

When working with glossy accents, make sure to assemble all the pieces together before adding glossy accents to your project . It is also a great idea to allow the project to dry from an hour to over night depending on the size of the project and how much glossy accents is applied.
