To make a card with a different image or sentiment, simply click “New Project” at the top of the screen. Then choose any SVG image or sentiment you love, I am going to be using this Good Days are Coming SVG from my free SVG library!

To start, I used this guide that I have previously taught to make my card in the same shape as the SVG and what is great is you can use ANY SVG for this technique.
I added in another offset layer to my free SVG file and my original thought was that I would run this through my embossing machine, however I totally forgot to check the sizing. What happened when I cut everything out was that this offset ended up being too big and wouldn't fit into my embossing folders. So if you do wanna use an embossing layer make sure you're checking how big you're cutting out your pieces.
I ended up cutting out my letters on heat transfer vinyl and again made another mistake! Don't forget that I make the mistake so you don't have to, make sure you mirror your heat transfer vinyl when you're using it!
I made sure to add in a sentiment with my pens, I'm always trying to use all of the functions that my Cricut has. When adding a sentiment you're gonna wanna use a writing font and in this blog post you can find 15 free writing fonts. Make sure whenever you're done writing whatever sentiment you want inside the card you're placing on the proper side of the card and attaching to the backing.
Do you have everything written and assembled the way you want you can go ahead and cut.
This part is super easy I definitely started with my offset heat transfer vinyl letters for my SVG. The reason that I did heat transfer vinyl was because these letters were super thin and now I know that they are also going to be lined up perfectly onto the card if you want you can always cut these out with regular vinyl or paper it really just depends on the look of the card that you want.

Once I had them ironed on, go to the rainbow portion of my card, I decided to go with glue for this card because I didn't want it to be too bulky and sticking out. You can check out my favorite craft glue: Bearly Arts and use code DINOMAA for 10% off your next order.
Finally I folded the backing of my card and made sure that the sentiment was written inside. Then I attached my offset with the SVG on top!
This is by far the easiest way to make a quick encouragement card and show your gratitude and love toward someone. DIY card making with Cricut doesn't need to be hard! You can make a beautiful card with simple steps!
