It’s Rumana (from The Little Pomegranate) here on the Cricut Blog today and I’m really excited to bring you a tutorial on how to make my Ramadan and Eid cards.

One thing I’ve really appreciated in the last year is being able to send little tokens and notes of love to my friends and family- bringing us closer when we can’t physically be together. And with this being our second Ramadan in a pandemic I wanted to create something that would celebrate the intricacy of Islamic Geometry and put a smile on the receiver’s face.

I’ve created two cards, a card specifically for Ramadan and a second which is blank and could be used for any purpose.

Arch Card Tutorial

For my version I’m using:

  • Jewel Cricut Cardstock in teal
  • Glitter cardstock
  • Glitter gel pen in gold
  • Scoring stylus/wheel
  • Glue stick

Step 1

Download the SVG of the card from my blog and upload it to Design Space. Here is a good tutorial on how to add your own images to Design Space.

Step 2

Let your Cricut cut, score and draw your project. If you’re using the Cricut Joy, you can remove the score lines and score manually using a ruler and bone knife or scissors (make sure not to cut through the cardstock if you’re using scissors).

Step 3

 Fold your card in half along the scoreline

Step 4

Glue along the back of the cut-out design.

Step 5

Glue you glitter cut out in place, shiny side face down.

Congratulations! You’ve made a beautiful arched card!

Lattice Card Tutorial

For my version I’m using:

  • Jewel Cricut Cardstock in purple
  • Glitter cardstock
  • Scoring stylus/wheel
  • Glue stick

Step 1

Download the SVG of the card from my blog and upload it to Design Space. Here is a good tutorial on how to add your own images to Design Space.

Step 2

Cut and score using your Cricut following the instructions on Design Space. If you’re using the Cricut Joy, you can remove the score lines and score manually using a ruler and bone knife or scissors (make sure not to cut through the cardstock if you’re using scissors).

Step 3

Glue along the border/edges of the cut-out design.

Step 4

Line it up with the cut out window on the main card and stick it down to the front.

Step 5

Press it down to stick in place.

Step 6

Fold your card in half along the scoreline.

I hope you love the cards as much as I do. Don’t tell the others, but the lattice card might be my favourite one… Make sure you keep checking in because I’ll be back on the blog and on Instagram sharing more Ramadan and Eid Cricut projects,

Rumana
