Cricut Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons "Beautiful Leaves" Card


All this week, I am showcasing the new Cricut Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons and Reminisce Accents cartridges!  Both of these cartridges have some beautiful cuts and unusual word art/fonts that are really fun!

I made this 4-1/2" x 6" card using Coredinations cardstock and DCWV papers.  I cut the leaves on page 56 on the Cheerful Seasons handbook at 2-1/2".  



I pop dotted the red glitter leaf to give it some dimension.

This Cricut Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons cartridge can only be purchased through a Creative Memories consultant and wonderfully, my friend Diane from Capadia Designs is a consultant.  You can purchase the cartridge through her at this link:  Cricut Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons cartridge.


 The circles were cut using the Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge at 4" (base and shadow), 4-1/4" (base),  4-1/2" (base and shadow), 4-3/4" (base) to create all the layered circles. I embossed the yellow circle with the Victoria leaves embossing folder (a favorite)!  I got this sketch idea from Mojo Monday.  They have fantastic sketches over there - check them out!


I created a matching envelope using my Scor Pal and stamped the side with some new Stampin Up! stamps I got from the Holiday Mini catalog.


Inside, I added some paper and stamped sentiment to finish off the card.  Stamps are from Papertrey Ink.

  1. LOVE this card! The colors used couldn't be more perfect and I think that is the most realistic maple leaf cut that I've seen from a cartridge yet. The yellow ribbon is the perfect finishing touch!

  9. Hi Joy!

    Your card is beautiful! There are so many pretty cuts on these cartridges and I love all of the details you added inside and out.

    I wanted to let you know that the link isn't working correctly - sometimes I think they change the CM site without warning!

    This link should work - it did just now when I checked it...

    Cheerful Seasons

    Thanks - I can't wait to see your other projects!
