Cutting the Cut Out Love card
Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing. I used a red gel pen. Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut? You can see the trick here. I used a font called Daddy and Mommy and you can download it at Creative Fabrica. I know it doesn’t fill in but as you can see , it draws beautifully when welded. And I already did that for you in this card.
Assembling the Cut Out Love Card
Next, glue the vellum to the back of the heart cut outs on the front of the card. Then glue the front to the inside of the card making sure the cut outs line up.
