How to Make a Foil Celebrate Card
If you’re new to using SVG files with your Cricut machine, make sure you read my full post on How to Upload an SVG to Cricut Design Space.
I’ve designed the Celebrate SVG File to fit any horizontal card. In the .zip file, you’ll find the “Celebrate” design with confetti by itself as well as with an included card design. You can use the included card design, or just create a rectangle in Cricut Design Space and place the SVG on top.
NOTE: When you upload a single line SVG, you have to change all of the parts that will be foiled to “FOIL” instead of “CUT.”
In addition, with the pre-designed card, you’ll need to change the line where the card will be folded to “SCORE.” Select the line, then change the Design Type to “score.”
When done properly, the fold line will be a dashed “Score” line, and the “Celebrate” SVG will look like gold lines. I chose “Fine” for the foil width for this card.
For detailed instructions for using Cricut Foil, visit the How to Use the Cricut Foil Transfer System post.
Place your cardstock on the cutting mat then attach the foil with the included tape. Follow the instructions provided by Cricut Design Space to use scoring tool, foil tip, or fine point blade to finish your design.

I love the Celebrate foil card, but I can’t find an actual link to download it! I’ve clicked everything I can find that’s a photo of the card, says Download, or anything else that makes sense, but none of them work. I signed up for your newsletter. Will the link come in an email? Your site doesn’t say that, so I’m wondering if I’m just missing the link somewhere.
Hi! Look for the big gray box at the end of the post 🙂
