I hope everyone had a happy Monday! This another Christmas card I made. It is actually one of my faves. The pics really don't do it justice. It is really chunky and fun! Anywho, I used my Expression for everything. I decided that when I am cutting anything with glitter that I would rather use my Expression rather than my Imagine. It is just a personal thing. But with the Imagine having ink tanks and everything, I just figured better safe than sorry. And since I have and E I thought, why not be safe.
The solid paper and glittered (green) cardstock are from Core'dinations. The patterned paper is last year's DCWV Christmas stack. It is double sided. So for the tag I used one side for the base and one side for the tag with the window cut. What is sandwiched between the tags is 5 Christmas trees from the Joys of the Season cart all glued together. On top of that I put a piece of acetate to make it feel like a window.
The card itself is from Just Because Cards. As is the scallop border and the green, glittered and embossed cardstock behind the tag. I embossed the green paper with my Cuttlebug and the newer 5x7 Polda Dots embossing folder. The ribbon at the base and top of the card is just stuff I have collected over time. The gems are from the $1 spot at Michaels. I used my glitter pen here and there. This one was definately outside the box for me and I really enjoyed it! TFL!

Here is a Christmas card I made for the challenge over at www.MyPinkstamper.com. The challenge is to make something Winter related. So, I made a Christmas card. I used the When It's Cold Outside, George and Basic Shapes, and Wild Cards cartridges for the Cricut to make this card.
The card size is 5.5. All the circles are made with George. the "snowflake" shape is from WICO (When It's Cold Outside). All the shapes on this cart are made to look like snowflakes, but have shapes with in the snowflake. This one is Santa and his reindeer. The card is from Wild Card. I can't remember which cart I used for the "Merry Christmas". I use my Gypsy for all my cutting on my Expression and I forgot to write that one down:) All the paper is from last year's DCWV Christmas stacks.
The gems are just some from my stash. The fabric in the middle is just that, a strip of fabric. On the inside I used my traditional glitter pen and white dots here and there. TFL!

Hi Ladies! Here is my next video. It is using the Cricut Imagine and Counry Carnival cart. Definately a keeper! I show how to make the bonus card and envie on this cart and I also show how to change the border around your cuts. The colors are much more vivid in person. I did the best I could with my video. This one is better than my last. And I will continue to try to improve in the video area. They sure are fun to make! TFL!
