Create a New Project

Click on “New Project” to open a blank canvas. This is where you’ll design your baby shower invitation.

Select Invitation Size and Shape

Choose the dimensions and shape for your invitation. Standard invitation sizes are usually 4×6 or 5×7 inches. Adjust the canvas size accordingly.

Design Your Invitation

Design your invitation by adding shapes, text, and images. Incorporate baby-themed elements such as baby feet, rattles, onesies, or strollers to align with the baby shower theme.

Customize Colors and Text

Select colors that complement the theme of the baby shower. Add the event details like date, time, location, RSVP information, and any other relevant details. Experiment with fonts and styles to achieve the desired look.

Import and Incorporate Images

If you have specific images or designs in mind, import them into Cricut Design Space and integrate them into your invitation layout.

Arrange and Resize Elements

Arrange all the elements on the canvas, ensuring they fit within the chosen invitation dimensions. Adjust sizes and positions as needed.

Attach and Group Layers

If you have multiple layers for an element, attach and group them to ensure they’re cut or printed correctly.

Preview and Make Necessary Adjustments

Preview the design to ensure everything looks as intended. Make any adjustments if needed.

Load Material and Cut/Print

Load your chosen cardstock or material onto the Cricut cutting mat. Follow the instructions on the Design Space to cut or print your invitation.

Once cut or printed, carefully remove the invitations from the cutting mat. Assemble the different parts using adhesive or glue.

Add Personal Touches

Consider adding embellishments like ribbons, buttons, or glitter to enhance the visual appeal of the invitations.
