Easy papercut Christmas Card

YOU WILL NEED:

Cricut Explore™ machine, Cricut Design Space™ software, 12" x 12" standard grip cutting mat, 12" x 12" Coloured cardstock in two coordinating colours, Cricut Scoring Stylus, Cricut tool set, PVA glue

This elegant card design looks top notch and will add a designer look to your handmade festive salutations yet it is is super simple to whip up with the help of a Cricut Explore.

The Cricut Explore is a great design and cut machine that produces crisp shapes and creases that are great for a wealth of amazing projects. The sleek piece of kit is combined with an easy-to-use online design space that lets users create an array of items from home décor for interior design fashion designs, party decorations or cards and gifts.

Cricut Explore is available from Create & Craft, selected Hobbycraft stores, Amazon.co.uk and other well-known craft retailers and etailers at £249.99 including VAT.

Connect the Cricut Explore™ to your computer, log on to your Design Space™ account. Select ‘cards’ from the categories menu and locate the ‘Christmas Tree Card’ project.

The project makes a card measuring 8.25"x 4.25". To create the project as designed, click ‘Make it Now’. To resize the project, click ‘customise’.

Resize the images as required by first highlighting the image and then dragging the corner point. The size appears in a black text box as the image is altered.

Score and cut the card and insert from your chosen cardstock, inserting the scoring stylus into the accessories port of the dual Cut Smart system when prompted. Use the scraper tool to apply the cardstock to the cutting mat to ensure good contact.

Carefully remove the cut images from the cutting mat using the spatula; this will minimise the damage to the image and mat.

Fold the card along the scored line. Glue the insert to the inside of the card front.
