Create a silhouette text card in Cricut design space 3

Posted on 20th October 2017
1- Open Cricut design space 3.


2- Create your design with text and shapes. Make sure every word and shape is touching each other at some point so it will weld correctly. I am using the font Lovely Melissa from

Once finished select everything and click weld.


3- Now you have a solid silhouette design to use for the card. Next we need to create a card base to cut the silhouette design from. Click on the shapes icon.


4- create a shape to suit your card needs. I am making a 5x7 card so my rectangle is 10 x 7 inches.


5- re click on the shape icon and click on the score line option. Insert a score line.


6- Resize the score line to the same height as your card. Select both the score line and the card base shape and then go to align and align center to make sure the score line is in the middle of your card.


7- Place your silhouette image over the right side of the card and move to ensure that it is even around all edges.


8- Click on the shape icon.


9- Create another shape to cover your image. I created a rectangle. make sure it totally covers your silhouette image except for a tiny bit of the edges.


10- Select the card shape and the new shape you just made, ensuring you do not select the silhouette image. then click on slice.


11- Remove the 2 shapes that have been created. This will create an aperture in your card.


12- Move the silhouette image over the card ensuing that the edges are overlapping the card aperture.

Once they are in the right place select both and click on Weld.


13- Your silhouette will now weld with the card to create the silhouette card. Next select both the score line and the card and click attach.


14- Your score line will now stay in place when you cut your card. Once happy click on make it.


15- You can see that the card will cut the aperture with the silhouette attached in one part.
