DIY Calligraphy Marble Place Cards

I absolutely love the look of organic weddings so I decided to create an easy DIY that would match this wedding theme. I have seen these marble place cards floating around the internet and decided to use my Cricut to make a budget friendly version. By using your Cricut machine you can save money on a calligrapher and make a ton of these place cards quick! Read on below to learn how to make these marble place cards using your Cricut! Psst… don’t have a Cricut? Head to my Instagram post today for a chance to win your own!Supplies:
Cricut Explore Air
4″ Marble Tiles
Gold Vinyl
Cricut Tools
Adhesive Cutting Mat
Transfer Tape
For this project we used a calligraphy font to give it a handwritten feel. Simply type up your seating chart in Photoshop and upload it into Design Space. Drag your file open to 2″ by 3″. This is the perfect size for 4″ marble tiles. Add your gold vinyl to the cutting mat and move your Cricut dial to vinyl. Load your cutting mat and press the flashing Cricut button to begin cutting! Once your Cricut has finished cutting out your place card design use the weeding tool to carefully remove the negative space.Place transfer tape over your gold vinyl and use the scraper to re-enforce the design on to your transfer tape. I often find it is hard to get all of the vinyl to stick to the transfer tape when the letters are thin and delicate so this tool is invaluable!Place your design over a marble tile and smooth on using the scraper tool. Carefully remove the transfer tape to reveal your finished place card!

Below are a few examples of other wedding details that would look gorgeous with these place cards. Silk linens, farm chairs, and lots of greenery would make these marble place cards pop and complete the organic look! Get even more Cricut wedding day ideas HERE!

  3. I have been obsessing over this idea for my wedding but thought about the cost of a calligrapher or stress of me calligraphy-ing. I just got a cricut and THIS. MADE. ME. SO. HAPPY!!!!!

    I’m assuming you used a vinyl like Oracle 651? Because I notice you’re not sealing it. I was wondering I thought about turning them into coasters and putting the table number on the back on the cork board I would use.

    • Hi Kathryn! The Vinyl is by Cricut and linked in the blog post. I highly recommend it! There’s no need to seal it.

  4. These are great! Do you think it would be too hard and intricate to do these on 3 inch tiles? To fit the table number and name I wasn’t sure.. thank you!

    • Hi Mary Anne! 4 inch sounds large but it is actually pretty small. 3 inch tile could work but it may look a bit cramped and you want people to be able to read what’s printed easily.

  5. Hello! I’m new to the Cricut world and purchased the machine because I was inspired to make these amazing place cards/coasters for my wedding. So thank you for posting! Is Photoshop necessary or would I be able to use a different editing software?

    • Hi Joyce! Wow, that’s so exciting! Welcome to the world of Cricut. I promise you’ll get obsessed! I believe you need Photoshop or Illustrator to create custom SVG files. And if you plan on making a lot of projects in the future it will make sense to download one of these programs. Can’t wait to see your projects!
