How to Make Bunny Silhouette Insert Cards

LEARN TO MAKE EASY BUNNY SILHOUETTE INSERT CARDS ON ANY CRICUT CUTTING MACHINE FOR EASTER

Today, I have a super easy card to create for Easter.

Like my other insert cards, this can be made on any cutting machine. In the download, you will find two folders inside. One for Cricut Explore and Cricut Maker and one for Cricut Joy.

Note: The version for the Cricut Joy is only the design so it would be best to use Cricut’s Insert Card Packs available at most craft stores! For more information on how to use this design with a Cricut Joy, please take a look at my Gingerbread Cookie Insert Cards!

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.

This project was part of Happy Crafty Easter 2023.

You can purchase the cut file for this project in my shop here.

Instructions

STEP 1 - PURCHASE & DOWNLOAD THE SVG CUT FILE

Purchase the SVG Cut File for the Bunny Silhouette Insert Card in my shop here.

STEP 2 - UPLOAD THE SVG FILE TO CRICUT DESIGN SPACE

If you aren't familiar with uploading SVG files into Design Space, take a look at my quick and easy tutorial here. Using your smartphone? Click here for my step-by-step guide on uploading SVG files with the Cricut App.

STEP 3 - UNGROUP CARD LAYERS

The file will upload into Cricut Design Space grouped together. You will want to hit the UNGROUP button to separate the layers.

STEP 4 - CONVERT FOLD LINES TO SCORE LINES

Scroll down the list in the LAYERS panel and find the envelope. Click the fold line and change the fold lines to score lines by changing the OPERATION from BASIC CUT to SCORE.

Attach your cardstock to the Cricut StandardGrip Mat using the Cricut Brayer.

STEP 6 - LOADING YOUR MATS AND CUTTING YOUR MATERIALS

To load the mat into the machine, press the double arrows button. Do make sure that the mat is positioned under the mat guides.

You will know the machine is ready to cut your material when you see the flashing "C" button. Press that to start the cut.

Follow Design Space prompts to change out the scoring wheel and fine point cutting blade.

Once the cut is complete, make sure to peel the mat away from the cardstock rather than the cardstock from the mat. This will prevent any curling of your design.

Repeat Step 6 for until all layers have been cut.

STEP 7 - ASSEMBLE YOUR CARD

Now that everything is cut, we can start to assemble the card.

Fold the outer card along the score line and burnish the fold with your scraper.

  1. I looooove all of the cards you make! This one is so quick and easy. Thank you for sharing your amazing creations!!

  2. Would love to make this, but I have a Joy and have no idea how to adjust the pattern since I can’t score. I’ve seen other people say to put a large rectangle over the back of the card and slice it, but this has never worked for me. I would love some advice! P.S. I just started following you on YouTube and Facebook. Your stuff looks great!
