Angel card made using the A Quilted Christmas cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Today I have a card made using the *NEW* A Quilted Christmas cartridge. It is June, so I was so not in the mood to make anything Christmas. Instead I thought I would show you just how versatile this cartridge really is. This angel cut was just too pretty  not to use. I thought she was just the perfect thing to use to show versatility of this Christmas cartridge. Also, I cut one of the borders and was pleasantly surprised on how beautiful it came out. It has far more layers than a usual border, so I was not sure how that would work out.

Here is the Cricut Craft Room File: https://www.box.com/s/b048eb847a0bc35a39fd
Here is the Gypsy file: https://www.box.com/s/f35572d3976558ac4c25




The stamp set used is from Close To My Heart and is called Angel Sent. You can order it by clicking the name of the stamp.
This is how I stamped the inside of the card.

 Thans so much for stopping by today!
