final card

Making this HUGS card with Valentine’s day in mind, it can actually be used year-round. I intend to use it for a friend that is recovering from surgery. The finished card is 4″ x 6″.

Hi, I am Janet from Try it – Like it – Create it, and I will be sharing projects with you twice a month along with a free SVG file.  


The card stock used for the card base is Basis in neutral. I am working with a pre-cut and folded card. CutCardStock has a ton of different colors of Basis to choose from. The colorful card stock comes from an assortment pack of Pop-Tones.

I used my Cricut Maker to cut the letters. Strategically aligning the colors, I was able to cut all the letters in one pass.

With a bit of glue and attention to alignment, the card was easy to finish.
