Today's 5"x 5" card comes from the super cute Creative Holiday Cards Cricut cartridge!
Check out the Creative Holiday Cards Cricut cartridge below:
To find out more about this cartridge, head over HERE.
For starters, this cartridge uses the universal overlay shown below:
As you can see in the handbook below, each card has the keys listed below it that you will need to press. Those keys correspond to the universal overlay shown above:
So, for our ornament card, we use key 31 to cut the card. Then, press the "F1" key then key 31 to get the inside layer. In the red oval, we are told what size to cut these at. I cut them at those different sizes to also make the front layers. The envelope is key 32 and cut at 5" - it matches all the cards on this page.
To get the ornament layers, I pressed key 37 and then F1 and key 37. Then to get the ornament overlays, I pressed key 38.
Above is the inside of the card.
The "HoHoHo" and the "Happy Holidays" is from the Close to My Heart Perfect Fit - Holidays stamp set (so much fun for just $9.95 - see HERE for more details):
