Artbooking Cricut Noel Cards - You pick which you like!

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 (4" x 8") 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!

  3. I'm in love with both of them Joy. The traditional one is so pretty, and the non traditional one is pretty. I think it would depend on who you are sending too as to whether you do a traditional or modern one! Hugs, Brenda
