Memorial Day Invitation

Well, it’s Monday yet again! I’ve had quite a weekend of doing just about absolutely nothing. Of course, I did get my 10,000 plus steps on Friday after my exam and on Saturday for “Goal Day.” Anyone else get theirs too? Anyways, today, I’ve put together a quite “Memorial Day Invitation” but of course it could be used for anything. Let’s get started….

The first thing I did was insert my “Whale Drawing” into a new project in Cricut Design Space. Then, I added a second one and used the ‘welding’ button to make it whole. On the first whale, I added a text box saying “come on over for a whale of a time.”

Next, I added an envelope where I then added a sending address and from address, both of which will be written by the Cricut.

I was finally ready to let my Cricut Explore do its thing. First, as you can see, it wrote my “…whale of a time” saying and then drew my whale drawing and cut it out.  Second, it made the scoring marks for folding the envelope, then wrote my addresses in their places and finally cut it out.

There you go! How I made my “Memorial Day Invitation.” Hope you enjoyed! I wanted to show the main part of the invitation and not the obvious. To have the rest of the invitation info such as time and date, you can duplicate whatever shape you are using, then use the mirror image function to flip it horizontally. This will allow where once cut out, it can be attached with adhesive to this part of the invitation; making it two-sided.
