You can purchase these new opaque pens in sizes to fit both Cricut full-size machines (Maker and Explore series) and the Cricut Joy. Opaque Gel Pens have a medium tip (1.0mm) and come in pink, white, yellow, orange and blue. The pens are water-based but permanent when dry.

Customize the design to your liking, adjusting sizes, colors, and text as desired. Make sure the design fits within the dimensions of your Cricut Insert Cards.
Load the Cricut 2x2 Card Mat with the Cricut Insert Card. Make sure the card is properly aligned and secure.
