Pear and partridge card kit day 2!

Hello, friends!

Today I have the second card design from the Pear and Partridge Christmas card making kit. Just like yesterday's post (click here if you missed it) I will show you the card that is recommended with the kit and then my version. My version of coarse includes the Cricut and a little fancier stamping techniques.

First, the version from the kit:






Now my version using the Artiste cartridge.

Here are some additional photos and information on the kit.


This is what is included in the kit.


Thanks for dropping in! I will be back tomorrow with the third card and my version!
