Make a DIY Christmas Card with the Cricut Joy and FREE SVG

I make handmade holiday cards for some of my close family and friends every year, and my Cricut machine is my favorite card-making sidekick. In years past, I’ve made DIY Christmas cards with my Cricut Maker, Handmade Cards with my Cricut Explore Air 2, and I’ve loved them all! It’s no secret that I love using the Cricut Blank Insert Cards to make EASY cards with my Cricut Joy, so I designed a “Merry and Bright” Christmas Card SVG so you can make one too!

I make cards ALL of the time with my Cricut Joy machine. I use them for birthdays, anniversaries, thank you cards, and more! With the wide array of Cricut Joy Blank Insert Cards, there’s tons of options. I just picked up an insert card set that includes glitter inserts, and I knew they would be perfect for Christmas cards!

How to Make a DIY Christmas Card with Cricut Joy

If you’re new to using SVG files with your Cricut machine, make sure you read my full post on How to Upload an SVG to Cricut Design Space.

If you’re a beginner, you can see the full tutorial here: DIY Cricut Joy Halloween Card. If you’re a little more experienced, you will be able to follow the highlights below!

Upload the Merry and Bright Card SVG into Design Space. Make sure that you have “Joy” selected as your machine (it’s in the top right corner). That setting will make sure that your card is sized appropriately for the machine you’re using.

Double check that the size of the image is 4″ wide. That will guarantee that the image will fit on your insert card.

Next, change the two line layers to “Draw” instead of “Cut.” Then, select the pen colors from the dropdown for each line layer. I used a green pen for the light string, and gold glitter gel pen for the lights.

Then “ATTACH” all of the layers:

Click the green “Make It” button, and select “Card Mat” on the next screen.

Make sure that the card size is 4.25″ x 5.5″.

Select “Insert Card” as your material. Follow the onscreen instructions to switch between the pen colors and the fine point blade.

When the card is finished, unload the mat and carefully peel up the front of the card from the mat. Slide the insert into the slots and you’re done!
