Christmas cards

My Christmas cards were a mixed bag this year. Some stamped and some embellished with my Cricut Expression. This card was created using the new mini Snowfriends Cricut cartridge. The card is 4 ¾ x 4 ¾. The snowperson was cut at 3”. The face was stamped with a Peachy Keen stamp and chalked. The background paper is My Mind’s Eye Signature Christmas Short Stack with Glitter. The tree is a Sizzix original die (the red one) outlined with stickles. The phrase is DCWV sticker.

This card was created using the ornament from the Joys of the Season cartridge cut at 3”. A piece of packing tape was cut to fit the back of the ornament so glitter could be applied to the cut-out part of the ornament. A piece of the ornament paper (in this case AC Specialty Paper Foil) was crimped and cut to fit the top of the ornament. The background paper is from a discontinued wallpaper book. HINT: All the home improvement stores that sell wallpaper periodically get rid of their sample books. Our Lowes even has a storage place for them near the wallpaper department; the books are marked “discontinued” and there is no charge to take them. They have some wonderful one-of-a-kind papers and are easy to work with. The letters were cut with the Sizzlet Alphabet Sunset.

My third card was stamped using a Whipper Snapper stamp, the paper is Mind’s Eye Signature Christmas glitter, the bear and penguin were chalked, the star was cut with a Sizzix Die (38-0155 Stars, Primitive), Stickles Crystal was used on the snow and the penguin’s hat. The phrase is a DCWV sticker.
