About this deal
As you prepare your machine, you'll need to select the material you plan to cut. For this project, I used Cricut's rose gold adhesive foil. After the rectangles have been hidden, select all of the names and attach them to the canvas. This will ensure you keep the current spacing between name sets. You don't have to do this, however I find it easier to have this spacing once I've removed the excess vinyl and added the transfer tape. Adjust the layout of the first and last name how you'd like it to appear on the place card. Then select both the first and last name and then select weld.

To match my wedding colours, I used the following sage green acrylic paint which I can highly recommend. These flat acrylic paint brushes were also brilliant for painting. Save money by DIYing your wedding To apply your vinyl, simply use transfer tape or masking tape (my preference). You’ll want to use the Cricut scraper tool and gently lift to ensure a successful transfer. This may take a few goes.This does two things. First, it will ensure the vinyl doesn't cut the space between each letter. This is an important step when cutting cursive letters. Second, it will ensure the layout of the first and the last name is maintained when you send your project to your Cricut machine. You may choose to paint the entire sheet, or leave areas bare. You can decide whether you want to only do one coat for a rustic feel or apply another.

Next, you’ll add a small blob of acrylic paint. I tend to use this blob to dot around the entire sheet and then paint from left to right evenly.Now that you've designed the lettering for the acrylic place cards, it is time to send the design to your Cricut machine to be cut.
