[Video]Anna Griffin Cricut Winter Wonderland Peace Christmas Card


Have you seen the fabulousness that is this Anna Griffin Winter Wonderland Cricut cartridge?  Check it out below:
It's on sale this week for $24.99 - so awesome - click HERE to get your own cartridge!

Take a look at the handbook for this cartridge:
I cut the "peace" at 2-1/2".  
Looking above, here's how you make these cuts:
1) To get the gold "peace" layer - press key 48, which is the base image.
2) red "peace" layer - press SHIFT, then key 48
3) shadow beige layer - press F1 function key, then key 48.

These key numbers and F1 refer to these spots on the Universal Overlay (see below):
I cut the card base from the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge at 5-1/2".

For the inside of the card, I stamped "Merry Christmas". 
I used the Close to My Heart Ornamental Cheer Stamp set - D1520 (see HERE to buy):
Here's a look at the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge bundle:

  38. What a gorgeous card it looks like you used some kind of crafting pouty for the back ground, but you didn't it's just dry embossing. Thanks for sharing and the booklet always helps no matter what.

  40. My favorite side dish is cranberry anything! I use the dried cranberries through out the year. One bite, one bite cranberries! Maybe if I ate them all the time I wouldn't enjoy them as much this time of year.
    Anyhoo, love the Best of cartridges they have such a good variety of items. Good for all occasions. I have one and love the chance to win one I don't have.
    Thanks again for your inspiration and a chance to win!

  41. We are all going to be at my sisters house for Thanksgiving this year. I am so excited. I am in charge of tap decorations. Thank goodness for my Cricut. Thanksgiving would not be Thanksgiving with out pumpkin pie and moms cranberry relish.

  42. Debbie from Fallston. I was just thinking about our Thanksgiving menu and my favorite side dish is Harvard Beets. We have had this dish in our family since I was a little girl, and what's really neat is I have the original cookbook by mom used for this recipe. It's even more special because my mom's sister, gave her the book and inscribed a note in it to my mother. Both of these special ladies are gone, but whenever I look at this cookbook and have Harvard Beets, they are right there with me! Your "Peace" card looked so great I just ordered the cartridge you used. Can't wait to get it.
