Cricut Project: Christmas Greeting Cards

It’s been two years and this COVID19 virus is not yet over so I’m glad that my sanity is still intact. I’m thankful for crafting because it keeps me busy when I felt physically, emotionally, spiritually, and even financially challenged. Bill Malone said “Hobbies are great distractions from the worries and troubles that plague daily living” 

And it is true, in order for me to lower my stress level, I limit my social media browsing and news intake. Instead of sulking because I am stuck at home, I find a hobby that will distract me from my daily worries. So since the start of 2021, I’ve focused on my new hobby and I started exploring my Cricut Maker and doing one project at a time. 

Crafting is a bit expensive hobby because I need to spend on my craft supplies and graphic elements. But for my sanity sake, I invest in my Cricut hobby because it makes me happy. So last Black Friday Sale, I bought a lot of digital files and napasobra ko sa add to cart so I guess my files will last until next Christmas Seasons. Hehehe! 

To justify my spending, I try my best to use those files. And because it was a holiday, I made Christmas cards. Nowadays, we normally send digital cards or text messages for our holiday greetings but I still make an effort to send Christmas cards to my mom who is miles away from us. “Sending Christmas cards is a good way to let your friends and family know that you think they're worth the price of a stamp.” - Melanie White 

I purchased these Merry Christmas Greeting Cards Templates last Black Friday Sale so I was crossing my fingers that I can do this project successfully. I tried making cards last March but it was not successful so after wasting a lot of cardstocks, I stopped the project. It took me several months to try it again and I’m so happy that I made it. “If at first, you don’t succeed, try, try, try, try, try again” Michael Chang 

The Merry Christmas cards templates are so easy to use and it is suitable for Cricut, Silhouette Cameo, or even hand cutting (print). The designs can be cut using different materials like paper, vinyl, stencil, and others. In my case, I used white and colored cardstock. I uploaded the design on Cricut Design Space, changed the size of the file to fit my cardstocks, and clicked Make It. The setting is cardstock intricate. 

I only need a few cards but I cut all the designs so I can practice more. I also created a square box for my card insert or backing. My cardstock colors are limited so I only use 3 colors. My son used the Let It Snow card and I sent it to my mom.
