Sweetest Wishes Candy Cane Card with Cricut Gingerbread Mini

Have you heard that another set of Christmas Cricut mini cartridges are being released?  They are all super cute...check them out HERE!

I used the Cricut Gingerbread Christmas Mini cartridge - here is a look at the back of the cartridge:



I decided to make a 4-1/2" x 6" card to give myself some room to work.  I cut the candy cane at 2-3/4" and it was such an easy cut with only two layers.  I had some of the new SEI Kris Kringle paper that went perfectly with the candy cane - it's SO CUTE!!



The stamps are from Papertrey ink and the label is from Spellbinders. I pop dotted the candy cane section.



Here is a quick shot of the inside:



Join me later today for the announcement of the winner for the Pink Expression!  Tomorrow, you can check out more new projects!

Have a great day!

  21. Adorable!! My Granddaughter has asked to cut a Gingerbread Man the last two times we played with my Cricut machine. I promised her I'd look to see if I could find one that we could cut. I found that one of the carts I have has a Gingerbread Man image, but it's not 'traditional' looking, like this cart is. I might just have to pick this one up and surprise her for Christmas, LOL! :)

  31. This is super cute! Now with so many new Christmas mini's, why don't they put them all on a full sized cart? I love looking thru all my handbooks at the cuts and don't have that with the mini's, so don't buy as many of those carts.
