How appropriate to post pictures of my Christmas cards on this cold and snowy Nebraska Sunday! Every year I am less and less a fan of winter weather, but I have to admit that it is really beautiful outdoors… The first set of cards I made using old Die Cuts With a View paper, some tags and labels from Recollections, ribbons from my stash, and dimensional stickers from K & Company. I love the “old fashioned” feel of these designs!
The next design uses paper from the Authentique “Wonder” collection. I stamped and heat embossed the tree, then added Stickles. I mounted the tree on a shaped frame and shadow cut with my Cricut. I also embellished the card with enamel dots and added a ribbon.
The next cards are made with “Winter Wonderland” paper from My Mind’s Eye and some dimensional Santa stickers from Recollections that I mounted on two layers of scalloped circles. I used strips of washi tape from this paper collection as well. I think they turned our fun and whimsical!
The next card was a bit frustrating, but I like the final results! I cut the angel from the Cricut cartridge A Quilted Christmas. The cuts are fairly intricate and I had to poke out a lot of little stuck on pieces from my angels. I used glossy paper from my stash.
The final cards were very fun to make! I used the Cricut Craft Room to weld the ornament cut to a rectangle. I placed strips of glitter tape from American Crafts behind the cutout for “stripes” on the ornaments, then added a ribbon bow on one design and a gold thread bow on the other design. I also used my Cuttlebug to emboss the white layer with a snowflake folder. The background paper was from Die Cuts With a View and Recollections. I think these cards are very festive! Thanks for looking! Laurie
