Let's talk Christmas Cards with the Cricut!

Christmas is a little over two months away but you and I both know that time is going to fly.  Here are some ideas for some cards to make for this season.  I made these last year for my other blog, Everyday Cricut, and wanted to share them with my new readers over the last year.


You can easily make this Christmas card above in multiples (12 can be made really quickly)!  It uses a layered image from one of my favorite Cricut cartridges, Cricut A Child's Year.  See my post and video on how to do that by clicking HERE!


Have you tried the Joy Fold card?  The card above is of that style and uses the house image from Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge.  You can see more about how to make this (with video) by clicking HERE!


How about this side stair step card?  These are SO FUN to make!  Check out a step by step "how to" do this by clicking HERE!


Finally, I can never resist a "Joy" card and this one came together so quickly and easily using the pre-welded word art "Joy" and background tag from the Cricut Winter Woodland cartridge, another favorite.  You can see more on how I made this (including a video) by clicking HERE!

  10. Joy, thanks so much for reminding me about the great cuts from last years cartridges! And I had forgotten about the images for Christmas in the 'A Childs Year' cartridge too! I have a couple more halloween cards to get finished this week, but then I'm going to get to finishing my Christmas cards. Thanks again
    Hugs, Jess
