We made these custom plates by adding personalization, an adorable Adhesive Gold Matte Foil spade and the sweetest little Hot Pink Cricut Vinyl bow!

Start by going into Design Space and create a new canvas.

Then add an image and search for spade!  We chose the first option and ungrouped our image to be a single spade.

Then we simply set our settings to vinyl and cut!  Make sure to carefully remove the vinyl from the cutting mat.

Then, on a new blank canvas, add your choice of name and cut.  We used the buttercup font for this pretty detail.

Lastly, we repeated the previous steps for the bow detailing at the top of our plate!

We cut our Hot Pink Cricut Vinyl accordingly and adhered it to the rim of the dessert plate.
