Mother’s Day Insert Cards

LEARN TO MAKE PRETTY MOTHER’S DAY INSERT CARDS ON ANY CRICUT CUTTING MACHINE

Mother’s Day is fast approaching so I thought I would get a head start on making some cards for the moms in my life. I just love how this Mother’s Day insert card turned out. The design is so sweet and so pretty!

As for all my insert cards I design, it can be made using any Cricut, or other brand, cutting machine you have! In the download, you will find two folders inside. One for Maker/Explore and one for 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 Cricut Joy New Years Insert Card tutorial!

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.

Everything has been set for you.

STEP 3 - CHOOSE YOUR PEN COLOR

You will notice a little icon next to the text layer in the LAYERS panel. This is because the color I chose in my design software wasn't compatible with Design Space.
