Hi Everyone! Kris here!
I cannot believe it is November already….where has the time gone? It feels just like yesterday when I was making a Hello Summer door sign.
I have a cute and kid-friendly project for you all today. November is the time when my daughter and I start to design our handmade Christmas cards. Last year we made Christmas cards around the theme of Christmas trees. So we browsed online for Christmas card ideas and she found a card with a poinsettia on it that she loved, she called it the Christmas flower.
So what perfect SVG file to use from Printable Cuttable Creatables? The Christmas Flower Poinsettia SVG Cut File and Clipart.
Let’s get started!
The supplies you will need:
- Cutting machine
- Scoring tool
- Cardstock of various colors
- Christmas-themed cardstock (optional)
- Precision glue pen
- 3D adhesive foam
- Sticker pearls or rhinestones
- A Christmas stamp (optional)
- Ink for the stamp (optional)
Printable Cuttable Creatables SVG Files used:
- Christmas Flower Poinsettia SVG Cut File and Clipart
- Single Line Christmas Holly Circle Frames SVG file
- A2 Envelope SVG Freebie
The first step to making these cards is we took the A2 Envelope SVG Freebie file and uploaded it to Cricut Design Space and cut out an envelope using 8.5×11 cardstock and the scoring stylus for the Cricut Maker. This then gave us an idea of what size of the card to make.
To the outside of the envelope, we added the Single Line Christmas Holly Circle Frames SVG File and personalized the inside with the recipient’s name. We also switched it to the drawing feature in DS instead of foiling. You could totally add this SVG file to the inside of a card as well and use the foil tool…..the possibilities are truly endless when it comes to all of the wonderful SVG files here at Printable Cuttable Creatables.
Next, we uploaded a square to DS and unlocked it to change it to the size that we wanted it to be. Our rectangle measured approximately 8.25 wide by 5.5 tall. We then added a scoring line and attached it to the middle of the card.
Once you have your envelope and card cut out, now comes the fun part of cutting out the Christmas Flower Poinsettia SVG Cut File. We cut our poinsettias in various sizes.
We did not use the yellow center part of the poinsettia as we like things sparkly for Christmas so we added a rhinestone to the center of our poinsettias.
We also layered the flower from the leaves using 3D adhesive foams.
One thing I would like to note for this project is, I usually design on my desktop and then cut/print from my Cricut using my tablet. But take a look at these two envelopes (the recipient’s name is hidden for privacy) ….both of these are from the same file with absolutely no editing or changes done to them whatsoever.
The left envelope was cut and drawn from DS opened on my desktop, and the right is created from DS opened on my tablet.
So I just wanted to let you know that from desktop to tablet, there might be a slight difference. I think going forward, from now on I’ll strictly do all my Cricut stuff from my desktop!
I hope that this was helpful to you and I hope that you enjoy getting crafty this holiday season with your little ones!
