How to Deboss Cards with Cricut Explore Machines
I’ve been using this hack to deboss for years, starting with my Lord of The Rings Napkin Rings from several years ago. But just recently decided to try it with Cricut Cards and the Cricut Card Mat. So let’s get into it!
What you will need:
Cricut Explore Machine of your choice (I’m using my Explore 3)
My Butterfly Thank You Card project in Cricut Design Space
I created a quick video to show you the process, check it out below…
Let’s walk through the steps:
If you would like to create your own project using this hack, follow the steps in my LOTR Napkin Rings tutorial. To make this Butterfly Card, open the design in Cricut Design Space, and resize it to fit your card size as needed since I have already made the necessary adjustments for this to work for you.
The key is to make sure any image you want to be debossed/embossed is selected as a scoring action.
Send the design to your Cricut Explore machine, you will need to make sure you select the Cricut Card Mat as your mat.
If the designs end up on two separate mats, simply move one to the other mat. Double-check your card size and proceed to cut. For the materials, I selected the Cricut Cutaway Card.
Load your Scoring Stylus, and move the white wheels to the center of your machine. Apply the insert card on the first panel of the card mat and the card on the second and load it into the Cricut. Follow the prompts to deboss and insert the pen when prompted.
When the Cricut is done debossing, drawing, and cutting, carefully remove the insert and card from the mat. Apply adhesive to the front of the insert card and line the design up with the butterfly cut-out, press down to adhere. I like to use the butterfly cut-out to decorate the envelope, I fold it in half and adhere it to the envelope.
And that’s it! What do you think? I love how it turned out. I hope you try the project out and if you do, please tag me on social @michellespartyplanit, I’d love to see your cards!
