Be Mine Valentine’s Cards

LEARN TO MAKE EASY AND ADORABLE CARDS FOR YOUR VALENTINES USING YOUR CRICUT CUTTING MACHINE

Valentine’s Day is coming up fast! I wanted to share with you this crazy easy yet adorable Be Mine Valentine’s card!

Now, this quick cut card is only two layers and doesn’t involve a pen or scoring wheel/stylus. Of course, I included an envelope file for you to use which will need to be scored so keep that in mind!

Also, if you don’t have a cutting machine, you can still make this card! I have added a PDF version that you can just print off on your home printer!

In this tutorial, I’ll give you my step by step instructions and tell you what materials I think work best when making this project.

TBH Crafters Club Members can download the SVG cut file for this project in the File Library.
