 Filigree Christmas Cards DIY: Cricut Explore Air 2
These cards are especially pretty and amazingly easy to make! They make a phenomenal statement and make the perfect Christmas card, table settings, tags for gifts or labels for the food table at your next party!
 Let's get started!
You will need:
Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine
Cricut Holiday Sampler Paper
Glue Pen
Envelopes
Calligraphy pen and ink (optional)
These Cricut Design Space™ images:
3 Filigree Christmas Cards

Once the cards are plugged into your project, just select the colors you want, if you want to change what I did.  Then click "make it".
Use a blue cutting mat and place the first color on the mat.  Cut it and continue in like manner with each color after that.
The sampler pack comes with 2 shades of red and 2 shades of green...plus a cream and aqua.  It's the perfect Christmas pairing.
Cut out each pattern as many times as you like.  This is a great way to send cards that look fancy and take little effort!  Yay!
I love the layered look of these cards.  The files are available to anyone that has Cricut Access.  I didn't design them, but I compiled them into one project.  You can find them individually if you prefer one over another.
The top layer is cut and there is a perfect underlayer for each card.
Use a glue pen (or even spray adhesive) to get all the little details to adhere to the underlayer.
Press together and let dry completely.
Fold in half and they are ready to pair with an envelope and ship.
Or you can take it one step further and add some calligraphy or hand lettering.


Other options include a gold paint pen, a brush marker or even have your Cricut cut vinyl script to lay over the top.
A simple handwritten greeting makes it more unique and personal.
