We Love You This Much Card is a simple, DIY card craft kids can make for
Father's Day or any occasion to show they care about someone special.
I love simple crafts I can do with my kids. They think my Cricut is magic. I can see why. You push a blinking button and magically this machine writes and cuts for you! AMAZING! I love watching their reactions when we craft together.
This card is a simple card craft kids can easily help with. Allow them to pick the colors for the paper and pens, push the button to GO and then help to glue it all together. Easy on you and so fun for them!
We made this card for Father's Day but it can be used for any occasion. Simply change the colors or the message to personalize it for what you need. Make it a Valentine's Day Card, or an I Miss You card, or even a Thank You card.

How to Make the We Love You This Much Card
Follow these easy steps to make the We Love You This Much card using Cricut Design Space.
Open Cricut Design Space and click the + to create a new project.
In the Design Panel on the left, select "Upload."
Click Upload Image, then Browse, and navigate to the We Love You This Much file on your device to upload it to Cricut Design Space. Here you can change the name and add tags. Click "Save."
Once you have the file uploaded, select it and click "Insert Images" to bring it onto your canvas.
You'll see all of the layers in the Layers Panel on the right side of your screen.
The first thing to do is to Ungroup the layers but clicking Ungroup at the top of the Layers Panel. Ungroup everything so each piece is its own layer and nothing is grouped together.
Next, select the 11 vertical lines on the gray rectangle by holding down the Shift key as you click each one in the layers panel. Change them from cut lines to score lines by changing the Linetype in the top toolbar to Score.
With the new score lines still selected, hold down the Shift key and click the gray rectangle and click Attach at the bottom of the Layers Panel. This will ensure that the score lines are scored on the gray rectangle as seen on your canvas.
Next, add your text. Select the Text from the Design Panel to the left of your canvas and type THIS MUCH!. Select a Writing font. I'm using Bicycle for Two which is a Cricut Access font. Change the height of the font to 0.75 in the Edit Toolbar at the top of your canvas.
With the text still selected, click the Advanced button and click Ungroup to Letters. This will separate the text into individual layers for each letter.
Next, add each letter to a square on the gray rectangle starting with the second spot. Trt to center the letters horizontally in each box.
Then select all of the letters and the gray rectangle by clicking and dragging your mouse over everything. Once it's all selected, go to Align > Center Vertically. This will ensure the letters are centered vertically on the gray rectangle.
With all of the letters, score lines and gray rectangle still selected click Attach at the bottom of the Layers Panel. This will ensure that the letters are drawn on the rectangle. You'll see everything located under the Attach layer in the Layers Panel.
Now, let's add text to each hand. Select the Text icon from the Design Panel on the left of your canvas and type We Love You... (or We miss you, We care about you, etc.) Make sure to select a Writing font. I used the same Bicycle for Two font as before.
Resize the text to fit on the left hand. I changed the height of mine to 3 inches. Don't worry that it doesn't quite fit, we're going to fix that next.
To make the text fit better, click Advanced > Ungroup to Lines. This will make each line of the text it's own layer. You can then move it around to make it fit better on the hand.
Next, select the layers of the 'We love you' text and the left light blue hand. Click Attach at the bottom of the Layers Panel. This will ensure this text is drawn on the left light blue hand.
Add, text to the right hand in the same way you did the left hand. For the Father's Day card we added Happy Father's Day but you can add any message you want or write your kid's names.
The only difference with this text is that instead of ungrouping the text to lines, I centered the text using Alignment > Center in the Edit Toolbar, and resized to fit in the hand. Then selected the text and the right light blue hand and clicked Attach.
Now you're ready to cut the design. Click Make It in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
There you have it!
