Cricut: Design Inspired: Rifle Paper Co. Holiday Cards

Design Inspired: Rifle Paper Co. Stationery with Cricut Explore Print Then Cut FeatureDid you see THIS post? Well, I suppose I just can’t get enough Rifle Paper Co. because I’ve got another project inspired by their beautiful designs…and just like the last time, I’m using my Cricut Expore to get the look I want.

Just like with all the Explore projects, the process here is so simple. I used the Print Then Cut Feature to create bunch of floral image stickers using THIS digital image set from Creative Market.

I also used iron-on glitter paper to cut out the sentiments that I would use on the cards. Just like I showed you in THIS post – you can actually use Cricut Iron-On with paper! It adheres perfectly.

Last up, you’ll just need a few cardstock card bases in whatever color you like. Rifle Paper Co. is known for their dark cards, so I chose a few deep, rich colors for this project.

  1. Peel off the Print Then Cut images from the Sticker Paper. I LOVE the Cricut Printable Sticker Paper! It’s thick and sturdy.
  2. Adhere the floral image directly to your card base. For this project, the Print Then Cut Feature is perfect, since it cuts the images with a full bleed, which means you don’t have a white edge around the image. Once adhered to the dark card base, it blends right in.
  3. Complete your floral design
  4. Place the gold glitter iron on greeting directly on to the paper card, then use an hot, dry iron to adhere it. Once it’s adhered, you’ll be able to peel back the clear backing to reveal your final project.

These Rifle inspired cards are super easy to make with your Explore! It’s tough to achieve a similar look with traditional dies and stamps, since those images typically will have a white edge all the way around, which can be distracting against a dark eggplant card like I used in this project.

Because these are so easy – just stickers and ironing – I made a second design against a burgundy card base. Loving how this one turned out.

  1. this is so inspiring!! I would really love to know what font you used for the “inspired” title. If it helps (if Ronna happens to see this), the words on the front of the card look like the fonts “bombshell” or “Isabella (on creativemarket.com)”.

  2. I’ve wanted to paint on dark paper for awhile now. I’m also inspired by Rifle paper. Cutting out the flowers and placing them on a dark paper, solves the problem of the paint showing up. Can’t wait to try!
