20+ Handmade Christmas Card Ideas for Cricut

I love making homemade Christmas cards, and every year I try to make new ones with one of my Cricut machines. There are SO many great designs and themes to match your Christmas aesthetic. Plus, ordering custom Christmas cards can be REALLY expensive, and if you’re crafty, you can save some big money if you make DIY holiday cards!

I’ve gathered up some of my favorite card designs that you can make with a Cricut machine. You won’t have to use scissors and cut everything by hand – let the machine do the hard work and then you can spend some time being creative with colors and some glue.
