LEARN TO MAKE ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS WEDDING CARDS USING A SIDE EASEL TECHNIQUE ON YOUR CRICUT CUTTING MACHINE!
Okay, everyone! I just love this one! It is so stunning!!
This card came about when I was playing around with how my easel cards pop up. I was turning them around this way and that way to see how they looked. Turns out, they look pretty darn cool from the side!
I originally saw this type of design on Pinterest when I was browsing wedding ideas and just knew I had to come up with my own version for our digital cutting machines!
Here was my “test cut”. I used my own wedding colors minus the gray. As you can see, it takes on a whole different look and feel using muted and subtle colors and paper.
This card comes with two versions for the “Congratulations” sentiment. For those of you who prefer everything to be cut out of cardstock, please select the “Cut Version”. Those of you who like to have your cutting machine to draw out sentiments, especially smaller and frilly text, please select the “Pen Version”.
I have even included a gift box for this stunning card to be placed in. I am unsure if I would mail this out but the box can be dressed up to create a beautiful presentation.
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.
