High Heel Greeting Card By Dreaming Tree – Cricut Tutorial
I love this little high heel greeting card from Dreaming Tree. I have lots of girly friends and family members who would love to receive one of these cards for their birthday. A great bonus is that the SVG files to make this card are totally free from Dreaming Tree 🙂
High Heel Greeting Card
If you prefer video tutorials to written tutorials, you can find the Dreaming Tree tutorial video here.
Before I begin the tutorial, I just need to let you know that in the first image below, it shows a white piece of cardstock. When it came to using the white card, I decided I needed a stronger colour and changed to a dark purple cardstock. I’d already cut some files before I decided on the change so I couldn’t retake the photo!
For this tutorial, you will need:
- Cardstock in a design of your choice for the shoe – I used glitter cardstock
- Co-ordinating cardstock for the shoe embellishments – I used adhesive foil
- Cardstock for the flower embellishments, the card insert and the envelope embellishment
- Card/paper of your choice for the envelope
- Cutting machine – I used a Cricut Maker
- Cricut cutting mats – I used a green and a blue mat
To see how I got to the cutting stage for this tutorial, check my previous tutorial – How To Download, Unzip & Upload SVG Files
1 – After you’ve clicked Make It in Design Space, you’ll be taken to the Prepare screen.
Choose your material by clicking on All Materials.
I’m using Glitter cardstock.
When you’ve set your material, you will be taken to the following screen and on the Cricut machine, the Load button will be flashing.
Load your card onto a mat – I used the green mat because it holds the glitter cardstock well – then place the mat under the guides on the machine and while holding the mat in place, press the load button.
Press the Cricut Go button when it flashes.
When your first piece has finished cutting, carefully remove from the board and set aside.
Load the next piece of card onto the mat. I used Adhesive foil and the blue mat. Remember to change your material settings.
Load the mat into the machine and press the Cricut Go button when it flashes
Unload the mat and remove the embellishments carefully, from the board.
Load your envelope card/paper onto the mat and then load into the machine. Press the Cricut Go button when it flashes.
Unload the mat and carefully remove the envelope and excess card/paper from the board.
Load the mat with the card for the next piece then load the mat into the machine and press the Cricut Go button when it flashes.
Load the mat for the final time and load into the machine.
Remove the card from the mat and fold along the score line.
Glue the high heel piece to the card ensuring it all lines up along the edge then glue the embellishment piece onto the shoe piece.
Using a piece of dowel or similar, shape the flower embellishment petals by holding the flower and dowel together then pulling the flower down between your finger and the dowel while slightly bending the card as you pull it.
Glue the flowers to the card.
Stick the flower middles onto the flowers.
At the bottom of the heel, you’ll see two tiny cuts. These are there to help you with placing the heel piece in the right place.
Glue the heel piece into place.
There are also tiny cut marks to show you where the sole needs to be placed.
It should look like this:
Add gem embellishments.
Fold all the score lines on the envelope piece then apply glue to the inside envelope flap.
Glue the envelope flap piece into place.
And that’s your card and envelope complete 🙂
