[Video]How to Finish Your Christmas Cards Quickly!

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!).

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.

Watch the video below to see how to make this card (click HERE if you can't see the video):

  6. Oh wow! I LOVE this cartridge! I'm a HUGE Halloween fan... in fact, I recently bought an inflatable skull and blew it up in the backyard... and my husband screamed! My daughter that we'd scared him, but what he said was, "What scared me is how your mother keeps buying more stuff for Halloween!" LOL... anyway, I love this cartridge... and I would put it to good use! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  61. My favorite cookie isn't really a cookie...but kinda. Bake brownies in mini muffin tins & push a rolo into the center as soon as they come out of the oven. The brownie will rise up over the candy ever do slightly then you get a bite of melty caramel when you sink your teeth in. Yum. I have the frosted card kit & need to get busy. Thanks for sharing!!

  62. This is a hard one. I never had a cookie I didn't like, but if push comes to shove, it's oatmeal raisin. I can taste them just thinking about them. Nice card, again, as usual.
