Took one of my favorite design papers from the paper pack, die cut the snowflake in place of the circle in the sketch and backed with a dark cardstock for contrast.  Cut a section of one of the PML Cards in the packet and framed with cardstock.  Added ribbon/bow and set a cute little owl on top of the bow...stamped a sentiment, framed and placed on the panel.  

On the inside of the card put a diagonal border of the same design paper and die cut a deer.

Merry Christmas

Using the Theme from The Paper Players "Snowflakes" and the Color Challenge from The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge "Blues".  

Putting this card together didn't take a lot of time "Clean and Simple"...and using snowflake border die it didn't need any other embelllishments.  The sentiment was dry embossed and then used sand paper, ligthty, to remove the color.  Added a glitter strip on the edge of the snowflake border.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Using a Christmas Die Cut from Cricut Design Space, and stamp set from CTMH, created a card for Fantabulous "Christmas Challenge"  After completing three of the four cards Bitten By the Bug 2 announced a "Christmas Words" Challenge today so my fourth card instead of a stamped sentiment chose the same sentiment in a die-cut from Cricut Design Space.  


Another Christmas Card, with no Sketch in mind, but to add to my 2016 Christmas Cards...loved the Brick Background paper which was cut and placed on card base a couple weeks ago; but just couldn't decide what to do with it. Pulled out the card base once again and chimney came in mind and off to Cricut Design Space to find something...purchased and modified this image. It all started to come together and was pleased with the design and made a couple more cards of the same.



Front of card was Santa coming down the chimney and on the inside Santa was traveling on to the next home.

For my project I chose to use a real decorative die using Gold and adding bronze glitter tape behind the Butterfly and adding a Bronze Border along the inside of the Manilla Card Base. To centers of some of the flowers added a few glitter dots with Liquid Glass and some bronze pearls.  No sentiment was included because I wanted it generic for a future occasion.

Season's Greetings

Another Christmas Card using the Heart2Heart Challenge "Create with City Sidewalks" paper pack or cartridge.  I chose to use the paper pack using three of the different design papers.  
Background design paper was adhered to card base.  Another panel cut with a second design paper, framed with colonial white cardstock and ahered with foam on background for dimension.   

Made three die cuts of the candles...two different colors for layering, and a third from design paper for piecing.  Berries were cut from cardstock, adhered to holly leaves and liquid glass added to give dimension. The sentiment was a die cut from Anna's Christmas Cards Cartridge.  



Inside of the card, along the bottom added a strip of cranberry cardstock, from stash a die cut of a holly and added three berries using red gllitter tape and hole punch.

Merry Christmas

The theme for The Outlawz - Sunday's CAS:  It's almost Christmas and yes, you've guessed it! This week, create a Christmas card in all white with 1 and only 1 red embellishment.  


Don't often do CAS cards, but wanted to challenge myself to this week's color theme.  

This card was made using All Dies...and submitted to another challenge Happy Little Stampers the candles and sentiment were layered to give the embossed look or a little dimension.





The berries were cut from red glimmer paper in Design Space... added liquid glass to create round berries.  Clear Wink of Stella on candles only (didn't photograph well).  



The border was a die and adhered to the card base. Inside was done with another partial die cut of the candles.

MY CHRISTMAS STASH: This is my fifth Christmas Card using the Atlantic Hearts sketches...watch for my next Christmas Card every Monday until mid December. 



Couldn't decide which reindeer to use on my card so three cards were made, each with one of the reindeers using different color combinations based on what the reindeer was wearing. Creating the first card took a little bit longer, but the next two were a breeze.

Give Thanks

I was going through my stash and came across a cornucopia which I put together last year but never finished a card...and when I saw that Bitten By the Bug 2 and Fantabulous Cricut had a "Give Thanks, Thanksgiving or Thank You" theme... I quickly put together a card with one of my favorite retired CTMH paper pack.

Holly Jolly Tag - H2H

While demonstrating how to use the Cricut Design Space to a friend we selected Elmo to show how you could change each cut to one color to use only one piece of colonial white cardstock for the cut, color each piece and assemble, and added some layers.  

Rather than make a card decided to make a Christmas tag using the Heart2Heart Challenge "Anything But a Card".  

Found a great sentiment on Design Space and added a few snowflakes previously cut and ribbon from my stash. On the back of the tag added a colonial white tag for a message or To and From.
