Let’s Make a Cricut Joy App Card in Under 5 Minutes
Open the Cricut Joy App and make sure you are signed into your Cricut Design Space™ account. If you have a Cricut Access Membership Plans then most of the designs are included. A quick tip is to make sure your Cricut Joy Blade is sharp and that your card mat is clean and sticky. If these are not, the card won’t cut as clean and you will have many pieces left in the card to remove.
Scroll to insert cards and click browse.
There are 1049 insert cards to choose from. Click the magnifying glass to search for what you are looking for. There are cards for a new baby or home, thank you, get well, anniversary, sorry, birthday and most holidays.
Choose the card that you want to create and tap start making.
You will see the card and then a preview of the card. If this is the card you want, tap next.
The Cricut Joy App is super smart and will choose the material for you, so just tap Make It.
Just follow the on screen prompts for loading the insert card mat, the pen or blade. Remove your card from the mat carefully and you have a greeting card ready to go. Insert cards are just the best and so is the Cricut Joy App. It’s my new go to for simple projects.
