Christmas Cards - Day 3 - Christmas Tree

Day 3 of my Christmas card share....and another Cricut Creation.  I really LOVE this cartridge!!!

This card was made using my Cricut Explore, but any Cricut will work, and the Christmas Kitsch cartridge.


Just like the card I posted yesterday, I embossed the front of the white card base with my Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder.  The front of the tree was cut from a luminescent card stock from Recollections that I got from Michael's.  I decorated the tree with gold Stickles and red Perlen-Pen by Viva, which is similar to Stickles but leaves smooth rounded drops.  I love the way it came out.

I think I will enter these challenges...

Christmas Cards - Day 2 - Christmas Stocking

Day 2 of sharing some cute Christams cards I have been making!  I wish I had started sooner so I could show you more.  I have been having fun :)

This card was made using my Cricut Explore, but any Cricut will work, and the Christmas Kitsch cartridge.


I embossed the front of the white card base with a Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder.  The card stock I used for the stocking is from a Recollections Christmas pack I got from Michael's last year.  I used foam tape to adhere the stocking to the card, and more foam tape to adhere the top of the stocking to give more dimension.  I used a tag die cut from the 10 Tags & Trims Cutting Die Set that I got from Paper Wishes and added a bow and jingle bell.  I am really loving these shaped cards from Cricut!

Christmas Cards - Day 1 - Frosty The Snowman

Christmas is almost here and I haven't been posting my Christmas cards!!!  What is wrong with me???  Well it's not too late so I'm starting today.

This card was made using my Cricut Explore, but any Cricut will work, and the Christmas Kitsch cartridge.


The papers I used on the card are digital from
 AMB Illustrations and is from the Christmas Digital Paper Pack AMB-512 .  I used Liquid Glass from CTMH on the hat ( I would put a link but my computer isn't cooperating...sorry).  I used a Sakura silver glitter Gelly Roll pen on the band of the hat.  I used black studs for his eyes and buttons.  This card is just adorable and so easy to make and fun to personalize.  I love this cartridge and you will be seeing more cards that I have made from it :)
