[Video]FAST CTMH Close to My Heart Cricut Merry and Bright Christmas Card

As soon as I saw this "merry and bright" stamp in the Close to My Heart Sparkle and Shine workshop on the go kit, I know I had to make a card with it.

Here's a peek at the stamp set that comes with the CTMH Sparkle and Shine workshop on the go kit:
These stamps match the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, so I thought I would cut all the parts of the card out using that cartridge (see below):



Here are the products used to make the card:

  1. I don't make xmas cards--too much work for something that 99% of the people will throw away. LOL I like sending (and receiving) photo cards. Thanks for the chance to win!

  3. i used to make my own xmas cards, decided it took way too much time and too few people appreciate it. This year will be the 2nd year we are sending photo cards - my new time saving tradition!

  4. Once again this time of year sneaks up on me. I did start going through my stamp sets pulling out some to use and the wheels in my brain were starting to spin with ideas. I have some time off work this week and scrapping time is planned.

  6. So far I have made 102 Christmas cards. They are so much fun to make. I know that at least half will be thrown away but other cards will be thrown away too. I make them, either sell or send them out. What they do with them after I will never know. I just know they enjoyed the card.

  9. Super cute card, Joy! Love to make Christmas cards! I have 62 done, and need to make a few more. I usually make 8-10 cards alike, then I get tired of them and find another card idea.

  22. I love the ticket shape of the card base. I think I'll try that, so thanks for the idea! I do make all my Christmas cards (about 85 of them) and I've only gotten 10 or so done this year so far. Need to get crackin'!

  23. Beautiful Card! Love it. I will use the idea for a vinyl design!

  24. I try to make my Christmas Cards, but I ususally run out of time & have to buy some at the store to finish my list. Best to be A-S than T-Z! I do my cards in alphabetically order every year, so the end of the alphabet is more likely to be store bought. But the Merry Christmas Card is one that I could mass produce, so maybe this year they will all be hand-made! Thanks again for the videos using the Cricut carts & the CTHM additions & stamps! What a great find!

  25. Loved your card! No, I have not started my cards. I meet with a group of ladies once a month to scrap and that is what I will be working on in Nov.

  26. I loved your ticket shaped Christmas Card! It has inspired me to possibly get the kit. Too fun and I would love to make it! Thank you for taking the time to make the video. Love to watch them and get ideas. Something different for this year to try! I so love to put on music, light a candle and get creative with my card friends! Nothing Better!
    Thanks again! Looking forward to the next video!
