Day 28| A Christmas Cricut Card Tutorial

October is soon coming to an end, which means that I am posting my final 31 Days of Christmas Card project.  To be honest, I debated dividing this week’s video into two separate tutorials, but, instead, chose to gift you with a full-length Cricut class tutorial showing how to engrave our Shaker Acetate windows with your Cricut Maker.  I have also added a bonus tutorial, but, before I get into that, I want to remind you to check out all of the Creative Design Team’s 31 Days of Christmas Cards projects. 

Throughout the month of October, our team has been posting a variety of Christmas card projects for you to enjoy.  If you have missed any of this month’s video collab, you can view the entire collection here.


Like I said, this week’s project is basically just one big Cricut class. Teaching people how to use their Cricut machines is a passion of mine. My weekly Cricut classes bring me such joy and being able to share a few techniques on my YouTube channel allows me to share my love of all things Cricut with you, too.  Today, I am sharing a few ways to dress up your shaker cards using the engraving tool and the foil transfer tool.

two shaker christmas cards with cricut engraved acetate

I honestly wish you could see these two cards up-close and in-person. The engraved acetate turned out simply beautiful.  To create those etched images, I used the Engraving Tool on my Maker machine to etch onto our Rectangle Acetate windows. 

The Rectangle Windows are new to our line of shaker products. We now carry rectangle, square, heart, and star shapes in both the thin cut dies and shaker windows to allow you to create all sorts of fun shaker cards.  Now that you know that these can be etched with the engraving tool, the possibilities are endless. 

In the photo above, you can see a bit of the etching that was engraved onto that acetate window. I also used the new Foil Transfer tool to add some silver snowflakes onto the Pearl Paper frame. 

In the video, I show you how to create both of the cards in Cricut Design Space and how to assemble each one.  After you have watched the video, you can continue to read about both of these cards that I created. 

Don’t forget to hit the subscribe button so that you don’t miss out on our upcoming November collab.  We have some great holiday crafting projects planned for you next month. 


Let’s take a look at each of the cards in a little more detail.  The Tidings and Joy card was created using Pearl paper, some CTMH Cricut images, a sweet Scarlet Glitter bow, and a large acetate rectangle with engraved snowflakes. 

After engraving the acetate, I cut the rectangle frame from Pearl paper, attached all the pieces together and filled the shaker with white glitter and White Bitty Beads. 

The images on the front of the card were cut from Scarlet & Evergreen cardstock using images from our Season of Joy collection. This image was cut out multiple times so that I make the sentiment thicker and layer more pine boughs being the words. 

Not only did I experiment with engraving on acetate, I learned how to use Liquid Pearls for the first time.  Where have these been all my life?! I have been hesitant to try them because I was told that they were difficult to use and took forever to dry.  My crafts are usually created last-minute, so I don’t always have time to spare. 

I am so glad I chose to give them a try. They were so much easier to use than I had thought they would be and they were dry within 20 minutes.  As I was adding the Carnation Red berries, I was remined of my cake decorating days when I would spend hours adding little pearls of frosting to flowers and cake tiers. 

The bow at the top of the card was cut from Scarlet Glitter paper using our Small Bow thin cut die.  After assembling the bow, I attached a little white pearl in the center and the card was complete. 

On the second card, I decided to add a little bonus tutorial.  Not only did I etch the acetate window, I decided to show you how to use the new Cricut Foil Transfer Tool.  This new tool can be used with the Explore and Maker machines and it works just like most foil transfer systems except that there is no heat required. 

The Foil Transfer system is used more like a score tool or engraving tool with three interchangeable tips – fine, medium, and bold – which are used with the Cricut Foil Transfer sheets.  When you are creating your project in Design Space, you will need to change your Line Type to “FOIL” then select the tip(s) you are using and choose your color of foil. 

On my Peace on Earth Card, I used the Fine Tip with Silver Foil to create snowflakes on our Pearl paper. I just love how simple and subtle this pattern is. 

Once I had added the silver snowflakes, I knew that I needed to use our new Blue Belle color.  I am a bit partial to blue at Christmas time, so being able to create a beautiful blue and silver card just make my heart happy.

The flower on the card was created using the thin cut dies in our Comfort & Joy stamp set along with the stamen die in our 3D Flower thin cut bundle. I cut the images from Pearl Paper and Vellum, then layered it all together to create a beautiful white poinsettia. 

Both cards turned out so much better than I had hoped and the etched images add so much to each of the cards.  I wish the photos were able to show off that amazing detail. I plan on posting a little mini-video on Facebook and Instagram to show them up-close. 


I hope that today’s project inspired you to dust off that Cricut machine and create something new.  We still have four more Christmas Card projects for you, so make sure that you are subscribed to each of the Creative Design Team channels so that you don’t miss out on a single one.

Day Fourteen: An Eclipse Slimline Christmas Card

Have you been enjoying our 31 Days of Christmas video series?? I have been amazed at all the unique projects our team has created and, each day, I am surprised by the cards they have made.  Yes, just like you, I have no idea what each of these lovely ladies are going to make, so I get to enjoy each of the process videos along with you. 

Make sure that you are subscribed to each of these channels so that you don’t miss out on any of our future videos. If you hit the notification bell, you will also be notified each time a video is added.


Today is day fourteen of our Creative Design Team video collab, and I am excited to share what I have made.  I chose to use non-Christmas products with my Cricut to create an Eclipse Slimline Card with a little gift pocket inside.

This year, I have not been able to purchase any of the new Christmas products, so I chose instead to use what I have – some Lovely papers, a few year-round stamps, my Cricut, and our amazing Fancy Border thin cuts.  Many of you have items in your stash that you could use for this type of card and my hope is that you pull out of few of these supplies and give it a try. 

To create the front panel of the card, you will need some letter dies or a cutting machine.  In the video tutorial I show you how I used Design Space to create the front panel and cut it out with my Maker. The wreath image I used for the “O” is not from a Christmas collection, but, in fact, is from our year-round Florals and Flutters stamp set

I stamped the wreath image in Evergreen and Sage inks, then cut it out using the matching thin cuts.  I then added some little red beads, a vellum bow, and a sticker from our Comfort & Joy sticker sheet.  How cute is that little bow? I just love all the little stitched details and how soft it looks. 

The lace on the card was created using our Fancy Borders thin cuts.  I also used one of these borders to create the scallop edge on the inside pocket of the card. 

Those lovely border dies are so much fun to play with and have so many possibly.  I am working on another project right now using these dies. Speaking of lovely — that is the name of the paper I used.  Our Lovely collection is a year-round collection that you can use for any occasion. It is full of beautiful patterns and colors that I know you will enjoy. 

In the video tutorial, I show you how to create the card base, form the pocket and assemble the card.  I hope you enjoy learning how to create this project. 

I truly hope that you have been inspired by our 31 Days of Christmas Cards series and that each of these videos has helped you to get a head-start on your holiday crafting.  If you have missed any of our past videos, you can view them here on my playlist
