5 minute Christmas Cards

Sometimes I forget about the wonderful feature keys on the Cricut Cartridges.  Using the"card" feature on Joys of the Season is a terrific way to make Christmas cards in a jiffy.  My cards are very simple (hence the "5 minutes"), but you can dress them up and make something spectacular!  I sized mine on the Gypsy  (width-8.5, height-5.5) which, when folded will fit an A2 envelope.
Isn't this a great snowflake cut? I just added the sentiment with its shadow (same cartridge) and a snowflake dimensional sticker. 


I added a sticker sentiment, 3 punched berries, and some Stickles.

 
As I said, these are quick and simple.  When your project list is a long one, sometimes it's just what you need!
Hugs and Happy Crafting,
Larelyn

Beautiful, I always forget about all those features also. 5 minutes are you kidding, even if I know the papers and what I am going to cut it still takes me at LEAST 45 minutes. I am very slow LOL
