There is a new free Christmas card cut file every day (for 50 days) if you log in to the Cricut Craft Room BUT only for the day. Here are a few that I liked and cut out. The files are so quick to make and there are many different ways you can jazz them up.
Log in and see what today's card is.
Have a great weekend and be sure to check out day 6 of Christmas cards on Monday!

Today's Christmas card is inspired by a movie. I'm thinking that Santa's elves are a lot like the minions from Despicable Me.
Thanks for stopping in!
Tomorrow's cards are created using the free cut files from Cricut Craft Room.

Cricut Craft Room - have you logged in lately? There are so many free cut files. This is one that I just needed to cut.
I will show some other free Christmas card cut files on day 5 (Friday, November the 29th) and how you can jazz them up.

I guess this card is pretty non-traditional. My inspiration was a tv show. This summer, our family watched Amazing Race Canada with our close friends. We had no idea that their neighbour and his son were going to be contestants. Therefore, we sat on the edge of our seats for the entire season watching episodes together. We were all so proud when they won! (I have to add that the neighbour competed and won with parkinson's disease) That is the story behind my crazy card. I made it for our viewing friends and may just make another for the winners.

I love making Christmas cards! Every year I say to myself that I should cut down on my card list, make one card design or *shudder* just buy cards. Well, I guess this won't be the year.
Without further ado, my first Christmas card - heavily inspired by Pinterest.
Here is the link for the tutorial I followed.
I am entering this card for a challenge at Scrappy Moms Stamps. They are challenging card-makers to make a card for military serving overseas. This is something I have never done before but always thought it would be something great to do. I have been searching up a Canadian address to send this card to. This is what I found:
Any Canadian Forces Member
PO Box 5140 Stn Forces
Now that I found my address, I realize, I missed the deadline for Christmas which was November 15th. Well, now I know exactly how to go about this next year and I can always send a "thank you for your service" card.
Please stop by tomorrow for day 2. My card is inspired by a television show. (?)

If you have a pre-teen daughter or grand-daughter you know exactly what I am talking about when I say Rainbow Loom. This crafting tool is a hot item this fall and my daughter and her friends have been looming like crazy. Therefore, I knew I needed to scrap it...
I took my inspiration from the box for the Rainbow Loom. My daughter generously agreed to loom an embellishment for the layout.
Here is a screen shot of my Cricut Craft Room project. I actually used the negative cut of my letters and glued the rainbow colors behind it.
Thanks for looking!
