I love making cards with my Cricut!

My Christmas card project is well underway! I made five cards this past weekend with my Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine. Plus, l earned a few things in the process.

Shop sale items via my link at Cricut.com and join in the fun.

Things I learned

  • I was delighted find out that when you increase the number of project copies, Design Space puts multiple images on one mat. That saves you time and paper. If I had gone through the Design Space for Beginners videos, I probably would have known this trick.

The project is small enough that this image fits five times on 12 x 12 paper.
  • The other thing I learned is that I love making cards. It’s a nice feeling to love an activity. I don’t think I ever got this feeling when I was making jewelry.

One more thing

  • I tried to embellish the trees with glitter. I wanted to try embossing, but my only embossing supply is a heat gun. The glitter experiment didn’t go so well.

Various attempts at using glitter. Not good.

I decided to buy some supplies on Amazon. The quest continues!
