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 svgcuts.com

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.

If you have been reading this blog for any length of time then you probably know that I have a hard time throwing things out, I prefer to recycle, reuse or repurpose whenever possible. I had a pretty big stash of toilet tissue paper tubes waiting to be turned into wall art or Christmas ornaments.
