Snowflake Joy Card using Cricut Winter Lace Cartridge


I made this non-traditional looking Christmas card (5" x 7") using Core'dinations cardstock and Anna Griffin paper. The center snowflake is from the new Cricut Winter Lace cartridge - so many cute snowflakes on this cartridge!  I cut the snowflake at 2-3/4" (base and shadow) and then cut another shadow in white at 3" and layered them together using adhesive backed glitter paper.  That adhesive backed glitter paper was a dream to use (be sure and multi-cut).  I got the paper at Cricut Dan's booth this summer.


Above hopefully, you can see the sparkle of the inside paper.  It makes quite a statement.


Here's the inside of the card - the top medallion says "'tis the season" and is also from Anna Griffin.


I popdotted the square section and also the "joy" scalloped circle.  The "joy" stamp is from Papertrey Ink.

Here is a quick look at the Cricut Winter Lace Cartridge:


Have a great day!!  Be sure and check out my two cards from the Nursery Tails Imagine Cricut cartridge over on Everyday Cricut!
