Before cutting your cards, you will need to make some modifications in Cricut Design Space. The modifications are the same for all 5 Christmas Card SVG designs. Once you upload the Christmas Card to Cricut Design Space, start by ungrouping all of your layers.

Select the layer with the black frame and then select the 2 lines that are grouped together. Change the operation from “cut” to “score”. Then, attach the score lines to your black frame layer.

You will also need to change “Merry Christmas” from “cut” to “pen” in the operations menu. Then attach your pen layer to the card. You can also delete this layer and add your own custom message with your Cricut pens.

Once you make the changes in Cricut Design Space, go ahead and cut out all of your pieces and assemble your Cricut Christmas Cards!
