Greeting Card Materials:
Let's Go Party Invitation Instructions
1. Prepare your card
To get started, gather all of your materials so you have them accessible. Select your paper of choice. In this project, we are using light and dark pink cardstock, pink marble paper (or any pink texture or pattern paper will do), and pink and yellow glitter paper.
To prepare your card, fold your light pink card stock in half to create a 5x7 or 4x6 folded card size. Then cut your pink texture or pattern paper slightly smaller than your final card size to create a natural border. Then, glue paper onto the front of your folded card.
2. Cut designs with Cricut
If you have a Cricut machine, you can use the Let's Go Party Cricut files to create your die-cuts for your pink party greeting card design. If you don't have a Cricut machine, you and hand-draw some of these elements and use scissors or an exacto-knife to cut.
3. Create the shaker card
Making a shaker card in this step is optional, but also a lot of fun! If you choose to make a shaker card, first cut your cellophane to size. For example, if your Cricut circle is 4x4, cut your cellophane to a 5x5 square, 1 inch larger than your circle diameter.
The goal for a shaker card is to simply make a layered "sandwich." Layer your sandwich top down, like this:
- Round Ziz-zag frame (top)
- Cellophane (middle)
- Solid pink circle (Bottom)
Next, using your glue runner, glue the zig-zag frame to the cellophane. Sprinkle a little glitter onto the cellophane, inside of the zig-zag frame. Lastly, add glue to the edges of the solid pink circle and place it on top to adhere your "sandwich" pieces together.
4. Assemble the card
Now that your shaker window is created and all your Cricut elements cut and glued together, it is time to finalize your design! First, glue your shaker window to the center of the card. Then, place all other elements loose on top of your card to ensure the layout and look you want before you start gluing pieces down. Once you are happy with the placement, glue all your elements down using a glue runner as it is quick, easy, and mess-free.
6. Add the party location
An easy way to add the location details of your pink party is to use an address stamp! Not only can you add an ddress stamp to be used as the return address for cards or invitations, but consider using it for RSVPs or including the location details within your invite!
