Just a few oldies, but goodies...

Hello everyone, I thought that I would post some of my favorite cards I made over at Christmas with the Cricut.

This first card was made using the Pink Journey and Joys of the Season cartridge. Can you believe that the paper I used is from that same pack of Basic Grey we have used all week. It is so versatile!!! I also used core'dinations cardstock as well.

I used my copics and air compressor to airbrush the white cardstock a pale blue. I love how it turned out!

The ovals were cut at 2 1/2" and 2 3/4 using the Pink Journey cartridge The tree was cut using the Joys Of the Season cartridge at 3".

The stamp sentiment is from Close to My Heart and it is called 'Just for the Holidays". The felt corners are from Close to My heart.

Here is the sketch:

The second card was made with the same pack of paper pack and also core'dinations cardstock.

The "snowflake" like cut was cut at 3" and layered with the main cut, shift cut, and shadow cut.

I also used my cuttlebug 'snow dots' folder on the core'dinations paper and sanded it down. I also distressed all the edges of the paper with my Close to My Heart edge distressing tool.

The sentiment used was called "Holiday Trinckets" and is from Close to My Heart.

here is the sketch:

Have a great Christmas Eve Eve ;-)

Love that first tree card. The shape looks so simple but is so intricately cut and so elegant. Nice job.
