STEP 1 - PURCHASE & DOWNLOAD THE SVG CUT FILE
You can purchase the Lots of Luck Gift Card Holder SVG Cut File 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 inner card layer. Click the fold line and change the fold lines to score lines by changing the OPERATION from BASIC CUT to SCORE.
Attach the score line and the inner card by highlighting the GROUP the envelope is under and selecting the ATTACH option in lower right hand corner.
Repeat for the outer card and envelope.
Scroll down the list in the LAYERS panel and find the text layer. Click the text and change the text to draw by changing the OPERATION from BASIC CUT to PEN.
Change the pen color if you wish. Attach the text and the card layer by highlighting the GROUP and selecting the ATTACH option in lower right hand corner.
Click the GREEN Make It Button.
STEP 5 - MAKE YOUR MATERIAL SELECTIONS AND PREPARE YOUR MATS
You will see the layers for this card in the mat preview.
For this tutorial, I am using Medium Cardstock. Select your materials accordingly.
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, pen, 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.
First, layer the embellishments together.
Layer the green grass layer onto the blue cover panel.
Fold the inner card piece as shown.
Fold the card flat and burnish the folds.
Fold the outer card and burnish.
Add glue or adhesive to one side of the folded inner card layer.
Place in the outer card and press to adhere.
Repeat for the other side.
Add the cover panel to the front and layer the embellishments.
STEP 8 - FORM THE ENVELOPE
To make the envelope, begin by folding along the score lines and press the folds with your scraper.
Add glue to the bottom of the side flaps.
Place the card inside the envelope. With the side flaps folded in, bring the bottom flap up and carefully press to form the envelope.
Your card and envelope are complete.
