Cut Out Christmas Card DIY!

By Dana Fox

If you’re looking for a super simple yet personal DIY Christmas card this year, I’ve got the perfect idea for you!  The best part is that these cards can be customized however you like… from the graphic image to the words of your choice. You can use a family holiday photo, a joyous pic of your pet, or you can get abstract with it and do something like the first photo!

I used my Cricut to cut out the letters, but you can also easily do the same thing using a nice quality card stock and a sharp blade or exact-o knife. With the Cricut, all you have to do is line up your letters and press a button.

If you wanted to do this by hand, you could print your lettering out directly on the card stock in the position you like. Use a faint grey colour, and then just cut along the outside edges. When your letters are cut, just grab that photo and adhere it to the inside of the card. You could be a bit more precise and glue it down around the  edges of the letters, but personally I kind of like how the shadows of the letters give it a dimensional look.

Do you buy your Christmas cards, or make them yourself??
