Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I”m making Emoji Valentines for my grandchildren.
Above is a screenshot of the cards in Cricut Design Space. The files are just the emojis, so I had to turn them into cards. For the round pirate and girl kissing, I duplicated the black base and added a score line along the left edge. The poop emoji was a little more involved. I duplicated the black base, did a horizontal flip on the new shape, lined the black pieces up and overlapped them slightly along the bottom, welded them, and added a scoreline. NOT as difficult as it sounds, lol.
Here are the cutout pieces. I used Close To My Heart cardstock in Lemon, Black, Ruby, Chocolate and White Daisy. The designs are 4.25” and are Girl Kisses Emoji, Pirate Emoji, and Poop Emoji from Rob & Bob.
Turning a circular shape into a card is a little tricky. If you overlap the circles and weld them, it changes the shape – it’s no longer a circle. So I glued the yellow layer to the black layer and added a scoreline along the left edge. On the left is the front on the Scor-Buddy – you can see the scoreline. Then I glued the top base piece to the bottom base piece and folded along the scoreline (on the right). Voila, a card . . .
Here are the assembled Kissing Girl Emoji and Pirate Emoji cards. Aren’t they adorable????
And . . . the Poop Emoji card, lol. My grandson is obsessed with the poop emoji, haha.
I added some Shimmer Mist to the heart on the Pirate Emoji. The envelope was created with my We R Memory Keepers 123 Punch Board and the WRMK Envelope Generator app on my phone.
The bow and heart on the Kissing Girl Emoji card was shimmered up as well.
Finally, here’s the Poop Emoji Card. These cards came out so cute, didn’t they?? I love making my own cards – I can personalize them for the recipient based on their interests. Oh, and they’re fun to make, too . . .
