Sometimes you need to acknowledge a difficult past but also look to improve it in the future.
How to make this card with a Cricut using print then cut:
First, you’ll need to download two ZIP files from the Free Files folder to create this card.
- (If you don’t have the password for the free files, fill in the form at the bottom of the page and it will be emailed to you.)
# 1 – the SVG for the card base and envelope, which is design #69 – Envelope and Card Base.

Materials needed to make the card:

- Blue LightGrip mat
- Scoring tip or stylus
- a printer (this is my printer and I love it)
