Watermelon Card

Create This Fun Watermelon Card

The Watermelon Card is easy to create using your Cricut, with cardstock and vinyl. I loved how the shiny holographic vinyl I used brought the words Hello Summer out on the card. The layered watermelon makes a great touch.

You can also use this design to create a shirt, a summer bag or a tumbler.

    The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the green Cardstock I used is medium weight, you will need to select "Medium Weight"..
    Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut. 
  • Please note when using regular vinyl that is not HTV (iron-on) you do not need to mirror it on the prepare screen. Don't forget when selecting the material type to select the correct type of vinyl you are using to cut out.
