[Video]One Look, Two Christmas Cards - Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut Cartridge

Today's Christmas cards use the Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge for the background overlays pieces, as well as the font. 

I started off planning to just make the teal and pink card but quickly decided it would be fun to do both kinds (traditional and modern/funky) and see what you guys thought!
Using the Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge, I cut the images above.  The font was used in the red/green card.  What's nice about this size of card is that they fit into a business sized envelope.
For the teal/pink card, I used the font from the Close to My Heart Artiste cartridge (click HERE to buy).  I liked its blocky, modern feel (sizing above).  You probably don't need to use real dial size with the Artiste cartridge but for consistency, I did.  No harm, no foul.
Using the geometic rings Cuttlebug folder, I embossed the background circles on the red/green card.
I have a glittering technique shown in the video below so be sure to check it out!

  1. I always like red and green for my Christmas cards, so the red and green one is my choice.

  2. Both are great but I tend to go with the traditional green and red colors. I have
    received cards that are not traditional and like them but just find myself going back
    to the traditional when I make mine.

  15. I love them both! But I think for the less-traditional colors I would use a different greeting - something more wintery than Christmas-y?

  28. It is never to early to start crafting your Christmas cards. If Hobby Lobby can have Christmas out in August then I say craft those cards. Sign them, address the envelopes and put on the stamps then December 1st in the mail ahead of the crowd. I like the red and green but I prefer red with silver.

  29. I love the colors of the vertical (red & green is classic) but I like the layout of the horizontal.
