Christmas Card Ideas - Week 2 Magic Monday

Today's Christmas card idea comes from the new Cricut Scandinavian Christmas Cards seasonal cartridge that was released on Thursday.  Check out the cartridge below:


As soon as I saw this cartridge, I knew I had to cut the "Joy" word art!  I thought it was just beautiful.

Then, I decided to make this 5" x 7" card:





Here's the card recipe:

1) Fold a 7" x 10" sheet of craft cardstock in half to form a 5" x 7" card. Ink edges with brown chalk ink.
2) Ink edges of a piece of red cardstock cut at 6-3/4" x 4-3/4" and then adhere to front of kraft card.
3) Cut "Joy" image at 4", all layers with colors as shown.  Adhere all pieces together.  Lightly ink edges.
4) Adhere "Joy" to a piece of designer paper cut at 6-1/4" x 4-1/4".  Ink edges of designer paper.  Add this to card front using pop dots.
5) Ink piece of cream colored cardstock cut at 6-3/4" x 4-3/4" and adhere to inside of card.
6) Using glue dot, adhere button to bow.  Adhere bow to card using glue dot, as shown.

Products used:  Cricut Scandinavian Christmas Cards cartridge, Basic Grey paper, Core'dinations cardstock, button and ribbon from Papertrey Ink.

  22. For so many years I absolutely hated soup. I always associated soup with being sick so it just gave me a "gross" feeling when I tried to eat. It was only the last couple of years that I have started eating soup and now I love it. My favorite is Chicken Tortilla soup. Love your card, especially the colors you used!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  67. Our home loves beans .... we always have a ham hock around and lots of different kinds of beans ... lob them all into the pot, toss in an onion or two, a load of garlic and let'er go. Reduces to a thick consistency and is then ready for some cheese on top and thick slice of crusty bread ... actually two slices. The second one is for the sop'pins in the bottom of the bowl.
