Hey party peeps, Happy National Craft Month! Last week I shared with you that I received the Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine and that it had been on my wish list FOREVER. Well, today I’m excited to show you How to Make a Card with the Cricut Explore Air™ 2. I admit, I’m a Cricut newbie and this was my very first project. In fact, this is the first time I have ever used or owned a Cricut product and man, I am hooked! It’s super easy to use and I was able to make a card in only a few minutes. Let’s get started.
MAKE AN ENJOY CARD WITH THE CRICUT EXPLORE AIR™ 2
Setting up the Cricut literally only took me a few minutes. Check out my post HERE where I show you how to set it up and everything it comes with. One of the best things I like about the Cricut is that it has an online interface that walks you through every step of thousands of projects available online at Cricut Design Space.
GIRLFRIEND TIP: I could literally spend hours looking through all the fabulous projects you can make, but since it was my first time using the machine, I decided to make the sample project that comes with the Cricut. Inside the box are sample papers and supplies you will need to make your first project. It’s a card that shows off just how fast it’s cutting and writing capability is.
STEP 1 – Get Online!
STEP 2 – Load the Cardstock!
STEP 3 – Load the Pen!
GIRLFRIEND TIP: The Cricut Explore Air™ 2 comes with a black pen when you purchase it. You can also purchase separately a wide variety of pens in various thicknesses and colors which opens up more creativity in creating your own projects.
STEP 4 – Cut & Write!
GIRLFRIEND TIP: Okay guys, once you hit the GO Button, so THIS is where the magic happens! The Cricut Explore Air™ 2 cut out the edges of the card and die cut the inside shape, cut frame holders and wrote the word ENJOY on the cardstock in a few minutes, all at the same time.
STEP 5 – Unload the Mat & Pen & Remove the Card from the Mat!
GIRLFRIEND TIP: Removing the card from the mat is super easy. Since this was a cardstock card, it was easy to lift it away from the mat. Don’t forget to put the plastic cover back on the mat once you’ve removed the card from it.
STEP 6 – Assemble Your Card!
My creative brain is on overdrive right now! Now that I’ve completed my first project I have a TON of ideas for projects I want to make. With this assortment of vinyl, iron-on, vellum, cardstocks and more that Cricut sent me I am SET! AND…Riley’s birthday party is coming up in a few weeks and will be using my Cricut Explore Air™ 2 to make a few projects for her party! Check back next week where I’ll share with you those projects.
