Holiday Card Project with NEW Cricut Mini from Provo Craft

Joy Holiday Card with Cricut Mini
I get so excited when the holidays come around. There are so many wonderful things about this time of year; the music, good food, parties and familiar traditions. There is one tradition that I always try and keep, which is sending out handmade Christmas cards to my family and friends. This year it is easier than ever for me to create a unique card when I use my new Cricut Mini machine, along with the free new online design tool Cricut Craft Room. I hope this card will help inspire your creativity, and by following the instructions provided, you too can create something beautiful to give at this time of year.
