What you will Need: How to Make a Trip-Fold Valentine’s Card using Cricut

Step 1: Download and Upload the SVG

First you will have to download the SVG to your computer and then upload it to Design Space. If you are unfamiliar with how to do this, check out this video. Once it is in Design Space resize it to 9″ w x 5″ H.

Step 2: Convert the Score Lines

Highlight the dotted lines using the left layers panel. Go to the top operations menu and choose score from the dropdown. Highlight both the dotted lines and the card and click attach at the bottom of the layers panel.

Step 3: Make It

Go to the top of Design Space and choose Make. Once Design Space goes to the next screen choose on mat. Then choose medium weight cardstock and follow the directions for cutting out the file.

Step 4: Place the Cardstock on the Blue Mat

Using the blue mat place the cardstock as usual. When prompted load the cardstock into your machine.

Step 5: Attach the Scoring Wheel or Stylus

Before cutting attach the scoring wheel or stylus to your machine. The first thing the program will do is to score the fold lines.

Step 6: Attach the Cutting Blade

Attach the cutting blade and cut out the card.

Step 7: Fold the Card

Write your sentiment on the inside. Fold the card on the score lines and insert into an envelope and send. I have included an envelope SVG with this project. If you want to create it follow the instructions in this post.

I hope you enjoyed this simple Valentine’s project. If you would like more Cricut crafting projects subscribe to my newsletter.
