Cricut Cartridge Opposites Attract – One of My Favorites!

Cricut Cartridge Opposites AttractRecently someone asked me which one of the font cartridges was my favorite.  If I had to pick one, I think I would chose the Cricut Cartridge Opposites Attract.

However, I should put a disclaimer here - it may be my favorite today, but tomorrow I may have other ideas!  Provo Craft has provided us with so many good font designs, it is difficult to pick just one.

On top of that, sometimes it just depends on my mood, as well as the project I'm working on.  I know, wishy washy, but hopefully I'm not the only one that feels that way!  Nonetheless, Opposites Attract is one of my favorites.  I find myself reaching for it time and again.

The lettering and designs on this cartridge are by Cecilia Harris.  If her name sounds familiar, there's a good reason for that.  She is the artist responsible for the die cuts on George and Basic Shapes, Beyond Birthdays, Jasmine, and Making the Grade.

When I was younger, I used to try to reinvent the way that my handwriting looked.  I would write with a slant for awhile, and then forego the angle to write my letters vertically.  Silly, I know, but I had to keep myself entertained during those long, boring science lectures!  However, I think that's one of the reasons why I love this cartridge so much...

Opposites Attract provides three fonts in one.  First, you can use it to make flowing cursive upper and lower case lettering.  Hit the "Opposite" creative feature key, and your Cricut will cut striking block letters, which you can then layer with the cursive die cuts for eye-catching contrast.

Using the creative features, the cursive font can also be embedded in trapezoid and circular shapes.  The upright creative feature gives the flowing script an entirely new, vertical look, and both the cursive and block fonts can be further accented with the shadow creative features.

As you can see, the Cricut Opposites Attract cartridge provides heaps of versatility, and it really is a fun one to play with!  Now that you know my preferred cartridge for making lettering die cuts, I would love to hear which ones are your favorites.  If you would like to share, just leave a comment below...

    I bought the Opposites Attract because I love the cursive writing over the printed words. After using it several times I cannot figure out how to meld the letters to make one cursive word. On the title of the box it shows the word ‘attract’ melded and I cannot figure it out. Please help!! I love the idea and look of this cartridge otherwise.

  2. Hi Cheryl,

    You cannot weld the letters together unless you have the Design Studio software. However, when you use them, you can glue them together so they appear to be one connected word.
