[Video]Close to My Heart Artiste Peace Christmas Card

Today's Christmas card is all about the glitter!  I love glitter paper and Christmas cards just lend themselves to glitter, don't they? LOL!

This 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card was created entirely using the Close to My Heart Artiste Cartridge and cut out in a snap.  Another easily replicated card!
Here are the cuts I used:
The cut above was welded to make the card using the Cricut Craft Room (Don't know how to weld in the Cricut Craft Room? Check out this video).  

If you didn't want to do that, you could use a scallop punch along the edges OR just cut this piece and mount it on the card front.




And of course, I used the Close to My Heart Artiste Cartridge (click HERE for more info):
Check out the video below on how to make this card (click HERE if you can't see the video):

  9. I love all your tutorials - and can't think of what I need help on- every thing you show has tips on how to do it better and easier! I do like some of your fancy fold cards... always fun to learn - and maybe some 3D kind of objects - how to get them together! There has to be an easier way than what I have done! LOL!
    BEAUTIFUL CARD Joy!

  17. I love glitter paper and bought lots of it but never use it for some reason. Now that I see your card I am going to give it a try. Thanks for all you inspiration. Have a fun day!

  18. I think I need a refresher course on choosing the correct settings for cutting out various items with the cricut. Especially with the Monster Bash having so many intricate cuts.

  19. How about a video on different ways to use the cardboard cutouts that come with the CTMH cartridges? Thanks for sharing your techniques!

    I recently tried stamping a large stamp and had trouble getting it to come out even. I know I had the color put on right. I just couldn't get the pressure correct. Any tips on that would be appreciated. Thank you so much.

  45. Joy, where do you find your inspiration? Everything looks "just so". I would love a demo on using negative space or cutting chipboard w the cricut. I can never get the chipboard and the paper to match, even if cut at the same setting. Can you glue the paper to the chipboard and cut?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Another beautiful card! I would love a tutorial on cutting chipboard and ways to use the chipboard shapes that came with Artiste and Artbooking. Your videos are always informative and inspiring. Thanks for sharing your tips!

  56. I am really looking forward to Columbus Day weekend this year as I am going away on a Scrapbooking weekend. 15 friends have reserved a summer camp for the weekend...and we will be setting up on Friday for 3 days of non stop scrapping....stopping only to eat and sleep! We do it 2x a year. We take our Cricut machines, scrapping supplies...they have the tables and chairs...and we enjoy sharing and scrapping together. Linda Talso
