Day 6 – 12 Days of Christmas 2018

Welcome to Day 6 of my 12 Days of Christmas of 2018

Today I bring you two variations of easy to make handmade Christmas cards.  One is made using an electronic cutter machine (mine is a Cricut Explore) but you could use a Silhouette, Brother or any other cutter. The other card is made using cardstock, Mod Podge and glitter. Both cards are quick and easy to create (under 30 minutes).


I have access to thousands of free images with my Cricut Design Space membership but there are plenty of sites that offer free cut files, here’s a cute one from

The one I used for the cutout Christmas trees is called Christmas Tree Cute Card #M45FE2 

My Cricut Explore Air made things pretty quick and easy. I followed the prompts for the cuts and the instructions on how to put it all together and before I knew it I had a beautiful Christmas card ready to write and send. I liked it so much I decided to make a few more. Link to the Santa card image.

Link to the Reindeer card image.

I also really enjoyed making the Mod Podge glitter tree. Keeping reading to see how easy it is to make.

To recap, you need cardstock, Mod Podge and glitter. One 8.5 x 11 piece of cardstock will make two cards – just cut it in two and fold each piece in half.

I used an old paintbrush I had on hand to apply Mod Podge in a tree design and then sprinkled the entire thing with glitter.  If you don’t have a paintbrush you could use your finger (if you don’t mind being sticky) – this could be a great craft to do with the kids.

It was so easy I made several more, here is another tree and a Christmas bauble.

Whether you use a die cutting machine or craft supplies that you have on hand, a handmade Christmas card will always be A Wandaful Thing! I am still trying to decide which one is my favorite, how about you? Do you have a favorite? Leave me a comment below.
