Christmas Bendy Card

This Christmas Bendy Card is nondenominational.  We forget sometimes that everyone doesn’t celebrate Christmas.  Sometimes you just want to say Seasons Greetings.

Someone on Pinterest cut this card by hand.  I liked the design of this Bendy Card when I first saw it and wanted to customize it for cricut. 

You need:

        • Heavy cardstock for the base (red and green)
        • various paper scraps
        • Pen
        • Glue
        • cellophane tape

Cutting the Card

Cut the card base and the cricut will do the writing.  I used a a black pen.  If you want to change what the card says, that can easily be done before cutting.  The font in this card is CMV Zebra which is one of the fill in fonts I created for cricut.  If you change what the card says, cricut will change the font.  To find out more about my fonts, you can go here. 

I stuck with the Christmas color palate but you could change it to whatever colors or patterns you want.  The green just needs to be kept light and /or simple to not interfere with the writing.

Assembly

Start by gluing the cutout images to the appropriate base piece but be careful not to cover the slots where the tabs go.  The green tree go between the red and green layer.

Next. fold the big tabs over and with liquid glue attach them to the back of the biggest piece of the base card.  Be sure to let them dry before going to the next step.

Then take the small tab on the medium size piece on the left and insert it into the slot on the large base piece.  Fold it over and tape it with a small piece of cellophane tape on the back.  I tried gluing it and it just wouldn’t stay.  Next do the same thing with the small base piece and the slot on the middle piece.

And you’re Christmas Bendy Card is done.  Enjoy!

Bendy Card – Get Well Card

I liked the design of this Bendy Card when I first saw it and wanted to customize it for cricut.  It says get well to that special someone.

You will need:

        • Heavy cardstock for the base (lt blue)
        • printer
        • Pen
        • Glue
        • cellophane tape

Cutting the Card

The images on this card are easiest done as print then cut.  If you need help with that technique there is a tutorial as part of my Design Space – There is nothing to be Scared of video series.

Cut the card base and the cricut will do the writing.  I used a dark blue pen.  If you want to change what the card says, that can easily be done before cutting.  

Assembly

Glue the images to the appropriate base piece but be careful not to cover the slots where the tabs go.

Next. fold the big tabs over and with liquid glue attach them to the back of the biggest piece of the base card.  Be sure to let them dry before going to the next step.

And you’re done. Enjoy
