There are many different styles of cards you can make. from simple, single cut designs to multi-layered pop up box cards, the options are nearly limitless with a Cricut in your craft room. Here are a few ideas of the types of card you can create:
- Paper cut cards – Cricut is best known of cutting materials into various shapes. So start with a single paper cut design to create beautiful cards.
