Learn how to make a birthday card using Cricut Explore Air and Design Studio!
Recently I purchased a Cricut Explore Air at a discounted price using a coupon from Jo-Ann Fabric And Craft Stores with the intention of doing some beta testing on the Project Primrose site that Cricut set up.
The site is really cool because you can share projects you have created with other users – and see what they are creating.
You do have to request a profile before you can start to share projects but if you are super creative or spend a lot of time working with your Cricut, I do recommend checking into the site.

- 1 sheet yellow cardstock
- 1 sheet dark green cardstock
- 1 sheet medium green cardstock
- 1 sheet printed green cardstock
- 1 sheet peachy pink cardstock
- 1 sheet green cardstock
- 1 5 x 7 sheet of polka dotted brown paper
- Pre-made blank card and envelope
- I set the design up in the Cricut Design Space then opened the app on my iPad. Click here for the design template.
- I connected the iPad to the bluetooth connection on the Cricut Explore Air.
- I then cut the images, switching out the colors of the paper as needed.
- Once all the pieces of the design are cut out, glue them together and then glue the design to the front of the pre-made card.
- Allow to throughly dry.
- Now the card is ready to sign, place in the envelope and give.
Note: I used 12 x 12 sheets for all the paper except the polka dotted brown but 5 x 7 sheets are plenty large.
