cricut joy™ chicks easter card

Are you super excited about this new machine? The Cricut Joy™ is a great segue into the DIY world of crafting! It is great for long designs (like skylines or panoramas), repeat or small and so much more!
Step 1

First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.
TIP: Be sure to let the system know you are using the Cricut Joy™. In the upper right corner, click the dropdown box to choose Cricut Joy™.

Step 2

Make any changes as desired and create a name for the outside of the envelope.

Step 3

Now, click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner and then click ‘Continue’ in the lower right corner of your screen.

Step 4

In the preview screen, move the name on the mat so the machine writes the name in correct place on your envelope.
TIP: Follow the prompts for each layer of your design as the machine will prompt when you are to add the pen or the cutting blade.

Step 5

Select the material for your envelope and place on the mat where planned in the preview mat.

Step 6

Place the mat in the loading area and your machine will pull it in to start your cut.

Step 7

Change the material and add an insert card to a card mat to cut the top layer for the card.

Step 8

Change the material again and place the deluxe paper onto a mat. Cut the design from each adhesive deluxe paper.

Step 9

Peel the backer paper from the paper and attach to the card front.

Step 10

Add a dimensional foam dot to each corner and a couple in the center on the back of the scalloped card layer. Attached to the front of a card base.

Step 11

If you have cut out the chick for your card front, glue a wiggle eye in place.

Step 12
Add a small chick to the front of your envelope.
