It looks really complicated to make, but honestly, it's not that bad once you break it down into little steps - and I'll be showing you all the steps you need to make the card, from loading into your Cricut, setting it up in Design Space and cutting it, to folding it, sticking it together, and even how to open and fold it to make it work!

The instructions for making the card that I'll share are for the Cricut, but if you're using another cutting machine, they may also help you.

The instructions will also include the assembly of the card once it's cut, so you can use this tutorial whichever type of cutting machine you choose to use.

The instructions are in 3 different parts, as they are rather long, as I took pictures of absolutely every stage to make sure you had all the information you needed to make the never ending card. I'll guide you through every step of the way!

We'll be working through:

I also discuss choosing materials and show you how the card will work on this page, just below, so please keep reading to find that out!

The template makes a card approximately 12 x 12 cm size (approximately 4.75 x 4.75 inches) with an envelope that's a little big larger.

You can make everything from A4 or Letter-sized cardstock (multiple sheets).

What's a Never Ending Card?

Before we get started, you might be a teensie bit curious about what a never ending card actually is - I know I was!

The never ending card is an interactive, folding card, that works like a puzzle - pretty much a never ending puzzle...

It's a fun and surprising journey for your recipient as they discover more and more aspects to the card - keep folding and unfolding, and the card is never ending!

You start at the start, as we always should...

Simply open up the never ending card to see the second 'layer' of the puzzle...

I've designed the never ending card SVG template so that it can be used for a birthday - but there's no specific birthday message, so you actually use it for an anniversary, wedding day, other special celebration or just to send best wishes...

Just write in your personal message in the space in the final layer.

I'll show you exactly how to make the never ending card in the next tutorials - you can follow each and every step along with me, and you'll soon discover it's nowhere near as complicated to make as it looks.

I'm thrilled with my card, and I can't stop unfolding it and playing with it - I can't wait to actually send it to a lucky recipient!

Making the Never Ending Card - Start Here

You will need

  • Cardstock in several different colours - I've used 7 different colours for my never ending card SVG template, including a cream for the message square and a rich blue for the envelope (some more about colours and cardstock below)
  • A way of cutting the template - including a way of accessing the digital files - I'm using my Cricut Maker cutting machine and cutting accessories and Cricut Design Space
  • Paper glue (glue stick)
  • Magic tape or masking tape (optional)
  • Metal ruler
  • Double-sided tape (optional) - for sealing the envelope

Choosing cardstock for your never ending card

You can make your own never ending card SVG from whichever colours of cardstock you like - I chose these colours to give a lovely rainbow effect, and also to try and keep the steps very clear to help you make it without getting confused...

For this card I used Cricut cardstock (all from the 'Jewel tones' pack) for the card and card decoration, all except for the message square on the final side (which I wanted from a smooth card to write on) and the envelope itself. For the message square and the envelope, I used lightweight cardstock (160gsm).

I recommend the Cricut cardstock (or something similar) as you need quite a sturdy card for this make, which can withstand multiple foldings and unfoldings, which the Cricut cardstock seems able to. Also, because we fold and unfold the card we need a card that has similar textures on both the front and the back, which the Cricut does have (so that it doesn't feel like the card has a front and a back - every single side is the front!). (My general discussion of choosing cardstock for Cricut is here.)

This consideration applies to the base rectangles which make up the card (yellow in my make) - but I stuck with Cricut cardstock for the decoration cuts too, so that I knew all the colours would look great together! You could quite happily use Sizzix cardstock (or another card you like) for the decoration parts of the card.

Go with any colours you like. I've made every 'side' a different colour, but you could make it simpler with just two colours if you like, or go even more colourful! Do bear in mind, though, that on the third side (teal in my make) some of the second colour still shows (green in my make) - so try to make extra sure that these colours go nicely with each other.

And of course, don't forget that every colour you choose needs to go with the base rectangles (yellow in my make). That's why I think choosing colours from a set or pack (like the Cricut 'Jewel' pack) does help a little with this.

You will also need my never ending card template, which you can get from my Etsy store (here)...

Never Ending Card Making Instructions

Let's start with setting up the never ending card SVG file in Cricut Design Space - the file needs to be scored and cut, so we'll look at how to set that up correctly first...

Then, we'll look at how to make the basic card in this tutorial...

And then move on to the final part of the instructions, which is the decoration of the card plus making the envelope - the tutorial for how to do this is here...
