I love seeing so many pretty Christmas cards. Here's one you can make in about 30 minutes with your own favorite papers and a little adhesive foil. This Cricut Christmas card is one of my favorites… it's easy to make but looks so fancy! You can add extra bling by including some glitter or sparkle gems. You could also add tiny buttons or bows as ornaments on the tree. This is one of my favorite Cricut projects yet. Your friends and family will love this handmade card!
Fancy Christmas Tree Card
You can change up this pretty Christmas Tree card by simply changing the paper colors you use. If you'd like to simplify this project a little, just cut one tree and apply that to the card.
For a fancier idea, you can make the tree into an ornament that you include with the card, just add a little twine to the top of the tree and don't permanently attach the tree to the card.

Tip: to prevent tree layers from warping, press firmly and then place a book or other heavy object on top of the stack to dry.
