Let the Adventure Begin Wedding Card Tutorial

by onepaperstreet

Hey Everyone! I made this super fun ‘Let the Adventure Begin’ wedding card a little while ago and wanted to walk you through just how I did it. The idea came to light when a good friend of mine said that she needed some wedding cards, for a few upcoming events! I wanted to do something fun that incorporated this pastel blue paper, and when I started looking through my Cricut images for inspiration, I kept coming back to this adorable old car with cans streaming down from the back of the car. I just knew I had to use it! Keep scrolling down to find the materials I used and to read the tutorial walkthrough.

Let the Adventure Begin Wedding Card Walkthrough:

Step 1.

Cut a slate gray sheet of cardstock to be 8.5×5.5 then fold it in half to make an A2 sized card base.

Step 2.

Grab a sheet of Neenah Solar White cardstock. The white cardstock will be used for the background of this design. I chose to use my Cricut machine to write the words “Let the Adventure Begin” on the cardstock. After that, the Cricut machine trimmed the cardstock to be 4×5.25 inches in size.

Step 3.

Use the Cricut Design Space project to create the car cut out and the cans. I chose to use light blue cardstock and some silver metallic paper for these items.

Step 4.

Use some adhesive glue to stick the cans to the car. I chose the fine point Zig 2 Way Glue Pen. Once the glue is dry, add 3D foam tape to the back of the car, so that it can pop off the page when you place it on the car.

Step 5.

Last but not least, I added a white insert inside this greeting card. This gives people a place to write since the card base is a dark slate gray. I mounted it to the card using 3L Scrapbook Adhesive brand mounting squares.
