Design Space Project: Bible Verse Valentine’s Day Card

I made Valentine cards again this year for our church’s homebound member ministry. When making 50 of one card, I need for it to be easy to cut and assemble! This card has a print then cut Bible verse on the front with a drawn background and a drawn inside sentiment.

Supplies I Used:

Preparing to Cut

This card has four layers and is A2 size (4.25″ x 5.5″ when folded).

  1. The base layer has the score line and inside sentiment. I used the red gel pen.

2. The gray layer is 5.25″ x 4″. If you are making multiple copies, four copies of this layer can be cut out of a letter size piece of cardstock if it is placed horizontally on the canvas. (Don’t change the material size.)

3. The red layer has a heart pattern drawn with the Cricut Opaque Gel Pens. On this layer, change the material size to 8.5″ x 11″ if using letter size paper so that Design Space will put four pieces vertically. Part of the pattern will get cut off at the bottom.

I ran into an issue with this layer. The pink gel pen wasn’t working near the top of the mat. I figured out that it was because my machine is on a cart, and the mat was hanging off the front. I solved this by putting a small clamp on the front of the Cricut so that the mat curved up and not down. This kept the position of the mat in relation to the pen the same.

4. For the sentiment layer, I used the Offset feature to create a background for the text. I selected the background and the text and flattened to make it a print then cut image.

Cutting the Card

Here is the link to my Design Space file. This project will cut for free with a Cricut Access subscription.

I used 3D Zots or foam squares to raise the verse off the card a bit.
