As convenient as it is to purchase a greeting card at the store, I prefer to make my own. Whether it be painting, paper quilling, or printing - my favorite is using my Cricut Explore Air! I received the machine from my loving parents and my intention was to use it for stencils to make wooden signs. I quickly found myself changing course and making greeting cards. I get to incorporate my illustrations and either have them directly cut or drawn onto the selected application. Watching the machine cut and draw is absolutely mesmerizing and so exciting to watch art come to life.
