Voting has started in many states, Iowa included. Everyone needs to make their voice heard and VOTE. I don’t care who you vote for (well I do, but not here). I just want everyone to exercise their right and vote.
I made lots of copies of this card and sent it to my nephews who can vote and every young person I could think of. I remember voting in the Carter/Reagan election. Yes I am that old. And I haven’t missed a presidential election since. My rule is if you don’t vote you can’t complain.
You will need:
I did this Make Your Voice Heard card in red,white, and blue. It seemed appropriate. Obvious color choice, I know, but you can choose any color you want. The base card doesn’t need to be two sided but it does have to be at least 110 lb weight to hold up the rest of the card.
Cutting the card
Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing. I used a black gel pen. Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut? You can see the trick here. I used my font CMV ZigZag for this card so it would fill in. If you want to know more about my fonts, check them out. They all fill in.
The vote banner doesn’t seen to be an Access image but I wasn’t charged for it either. Maybe it is a free image for now.
Assembling the Make Your Voice Heard Card
The first thing to do is to recrease all the folds. The fold lines go like this:
Next assemble all the embellishments and attach them to an overlay. Then attach the overlays to the base card. You can stagger the colors how ever you want but each overlay fits into a specific sized space.
And your Make your voice count voting card is done. It fits in an A6 envelope nicely for mailing.
I know I said this earlier, but make sure you vote on or before election day.
