12 Days of Christmas with Joans Craft World

On the fourth day of Christmas…

Handmade Christmas Cards do not have to be hard to make.  As a matter of fact this card was so simple to make but came out really good.

All I used for create this Christmas card was black cardstock, white glitter paper from doodlebug design, inc, and some greeting cards that I purchased with a background design already printed on the front.

I used my Cricut Expression machine to cut the images.  The sparkly moon was made using the circle image from Mini Monograms Cricut cartridge, and Santa with his sleigh and reindeer from Christmas solutions cartridge.  I put the moon on the card using the pink ATG gun and then for the Santa I used a Zig 2 way glue pen since it is really delicate and I think a tape runner would have definitely torn the paper.

That’s it.  I’m done and it looks perfect!


Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!

I have tried, many times to make the Santa sleigh. I can not get the whip to come out. It is either cut and the curly end or by Santa’s hand. I make sure the needle is shape. I tried slowing the speed, increasing/decreasing the pressure. Everything I know what to do. Can you help? Thank-you for all your great ideas.

Do you remember what size you cut the Santa and sleigh? I love this card and with your permission I would like to scrap lift it please.

Thank you and of course you can scrap lift – The Santa and sleigh is cut at 1 3/4 for this card – Make sure that you use a sticky mat it will make it easier for the smaller pieces not to tear when you are removing – Just take your time and have fun 🙂
