[Video]Frosted Christmas Card-Warm Winter Wishes

Today's card was made using the new Close to My Heart Frosted Christmas Card kit.  There are no Cricut cuts on this at all (I know, shocker!).

There are two Cuttlebug folders used on this card that are not included in the kit - the Swiss Dots and Snowflake folders.

This is one of the cards you can make using the kit and I show you how in the video below:
I love this kit because for $24.95, you get all the materials to make 15 cards (5 cards of 3 designs) plus the fabulous, fun large "D" sized stamp set (see below).

Check out the large stamp set that is included (shown below). It has a value of $17.95 and cannot be purchased separately - you can only get it in this kit.
I love the Christmasy sayings on this stamp set and the way the cards use all of the stamps.

Here are the 3 card designs:
Here's what is included in the kit (instructions, 15 envelopes and card bases, cardstock, patterned paper, stamp set shown above, glittery twine, and sparkly gems):
The only other items you may need to have in addition to the kit are cocoa, cranberry, olive and twilight ink pads (see HERE to get those).

You can purchase the CTMH Frosted Card kit HERE.

  8. I just got this card kit a few days ago & I'm so excited to get going on my Christmas cards! It's harvest time (grapes) here in the Napa Valley (Northern California) & we live on a vineyard, so our property will be bustling all weekend long. I'll be tending to our house & the dogs while hubby busts his you-know-what, lol. Thanks for another awesome giveaway!

  26. Love this Halloween cricut set! Would love to win it! I discovered your blog recently and have just signed up to follow it! Love your ideas! I am a CTMH consultant too but can always use ideas from others! This weekend still reminds me of when I was 14 years old and babysitting during the Columbus Day storm in Portland, Oregon! I was sure the house was going to blow over.. trees were falling all through our neighborhood (big huge fir trees) and I was pretty scared! This weekend I'm gonig to go out and photograph some of the fall colors, plus craft of course!
