Christmas Cards 2011

Being I believe everyone has already received my Christmas cards this year, I'm going to post to my blog early.  I actually made two cards this year; one for the adults and another for the kids. 

The first card (for the adults) is made using the Winter Woodland (deer), Create a Critter (tree), Paper Dolls for Everyday (snow hill), and Joys of the Season (snow flakes) cricut cartridges.  I couldn't find any regular holographic paper in the stores, so I used some gift boxes I had to make the cuts.  I found some snowflake ribbon which matched perfectly to the winter snow feeling I was going for.  To finish it off, I cut up some cotton balls and glued at the bottom of the trees to give it the snow pile affect and then glittered the mini snowflakes punched on the bottom of the card.

The second card (for the kids) is made using the 'A Child's Year' cartridge.  It was an easy card as it only required a couple of cuts.  The picture doesn't do it justice as the paper behind the santa/child is little dots that sparkle with glitter.  I just added the little poinsettia flowers with a few rhinestones and the Ho Ho Ho ribbon and it was complete.

Happy Holidays!!

Thanksgiving 2011

I'm a little behind in posting my cards for both Halloween and Thanksgiving this year.  But as they say, "better late than never."  This little turkey was so much fun to make and the kids enjoyed him.  I cut the card shape using the Wild Card cartridge.  The turkey is from the Create a Critter cartridge.  I placed the turkey on an Action Wobble and added him some Googly Eyes.  A little button on his hat and a couple of Gooble Goobles and he was done and so cute!!

Halloween 2011

This is the Halloween card I made for my family and friends this year.  It combines the use of many materials to include the Happy Hauntings embossing folder for the Haunted House in the background, cuts from the Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge (ghost, witch, and black cat on the fence), as well as a couple of the Martha Stewart punches.  The outside edge of the card was punched using the spider MS punch and then I added a little MS black glitter.
