I typically do not make Christmas cards, but I do when I’m shipping packages! I always like including a handmade card with a Christmas gift that’s traveling across the miles. Today, I’m making Circle Christmas Tree Cards with my Cricut Explore Air 2. With one cut, I can get two cards!
- Cricut Explore Air 2
- Cricut Standard Grip Cutting Mat
- Card stock
- Plain card stock cards and envelopes
- Craft glue
- Optional: Transfer tape
If you want to just grab my cut file for this, my Cricut Design Space Christmas Card Cutting link is here! Or, I’ll show you how to make your own in the next few steps.
Open up Cricut Design Space and use “Insert Shapes” to create a triangle.
Fill the triangle with assorted size circles.
Insert a rectangle. The rectangle should be a bit smaller than the card front on which the tree will go.
Attach all the circles together and remove the triangle.
Use “Insert Shapes” to add a star for the top of the tree and a square for the bottom. Attach these shapes to the attached set with the circles. Place the rectangle over the “tree” and make sure that the “tree” fits well inside.
Make sure all shapes are attached before cutting.
Once the card stock is cut, pull the rectangle piece (which now has the circle holes in it) away from the individual shape pieces. Glue this portion on the front of the card.
To make the second card, glue all the little circles to the front of the card. I decided to experiment with transfer tape to see if this would help the process go easier.
The result? I wouldn’t use transfer tape on card stock as a rule. While the majority of the card turned out perfectly, the transfer tape did pull off a little bit of paper on a few of the circles. I did press down firmly on the transfer tape (probably too firmly). It did help make gluing the circles a LOT easier, though.
And that’s it! Two cards with one cut!
