In this post, I am going to talk about how to make this greeting card using Cricut Design Space. One of the things that I've always loved is stationary. A personal note on a beautiful card or letter was so meaningful to me. This design is a perfect cross between a letter and card! You get the best of both worlds.
To create this design, you'll just need 2 card stocks and ribbon. One of the card stocks needs to be heavier to be able to withstand the pressure the ribbon requires to tie the bow. The ribbon I used is wide but very light to be able to thread into the smaller cutouts. It doesn't need an envelope with the big bow in front. The other great thing about this design is that it doesn't require any glue!
Once you cut the 2 card stocks, just place the lighter one on the outside. Then, thread the ribbon through the cutouts to tie in front and tada, a beautiful card/letter!
- Any light card stock for the outer layer
- Poster card stock for the inside layer, it needs to be thicker than the outside layer

- Remember to use light card stock for the outer part that has the cutouts.
- Remember to use poster card stock for the inner part- this helps keep it's shape once you thread the ribbon and tie the bow.
- Fold inwards on the scored side to make a clean fold.
- Remember when cutting to switch the card stock selection when you make the inside versus the outside so the Cricut machine will know the proper pressure to cut the different cardstock thicknesses.
