Pooh Christmas Gift

Another A2 card. The card base is Bazzill. I love this cardstock because it is so sturdy. It is great for a card base. I like it overall, but it is more difficult to cut detailed designs on the Cricut. Pooh is from the Pooh and Friends cart and is cut at 3". His hat is from the same cart, but I used my Gypsy to make it fit his head just right. The Christmas gift is also cut at 3" and is from the Hello Kitty Greetings cart. I added a large gem in the middle of the bow for some bling. The holly leaf corners are from Winter Woodland and are 1". I added a little bling for the berries. The tag behind everything is from Gypsy Wanderings (one of the best carts ever created). I tied some green ribbon at the side. All the patterned paper is from the DCWV Holiday Collection Christmas Stack for this year. I used my glitter pen around the holly leaves for dimension. I also used yellow pearlescent chalk to make him glow (it is hard to see in the photos) and pink on his cheeks. TFL!

Tweeting You A Happy Birthday

Happy Saturday Everyone! This card is a Happy Birthday card for my "stash". I love the Gypsy. It allows me to use so many carts at once. And I am using more carts than ever! This is an A2 card. The cardstock base is Bazzill. All the patterned paper is from the DCWV stack called MiCasa. That stack has so many beautiful papers. The bird on the front is from Stamping Solutions (cut at 3"). The shape it is placed on top of is from Gypsy Wanderings (cut at 4" (I think)). Then I layered that shape on top of some of the glittered paper I used for the bird. The "tweeting you" is from Lyrical Letters and is welded together and sized to fit the card. I also used some ribbon and some bling for the eye to add some detail.
On the inside the "happy" is the Hello Kitty font. The "birthday" is from Simply Sweet. The "a" is handwritten. It is easy to make and I like the outcome. TFL.

Warm Winter Wishes

This is an A2 card created with my Gypsy, Winter Woodland, Christmas Cheer and Gypsy Wanderings. The snowflakes are from Christmas Cheer. The snowman and all his cute little accessories and the inside phrase are from Winter Woodland. The shape the phrase is on in the inside of the card is from Gypsy Wanderings. I added a cute little "blingy" snowman next to the big one and some other bling around the card. I also used Azure blue Cat's Eye Chalk all around. The paper is from the newest DCWV Christmas Stacks. Not sure where the ribbon is from. :)
