Wow, Christmas is almost here!

Hello, everyone!! Merry Christmas Eve!!

Here are a few more that I pulled out of the Christmas with the Cricut vault.

The first card is made using the new and FANTASTIC Designer's Calendar. I have to say I love this cartridge. It has so many possibilities, including things you can use to make Christmas Cards!

This card was something I had sketched a few weeks back when I got this cartridge. It was something I was determined to try.

The '25' is cut at 2 1/2 " and 'December' is cut at 1 1/4".

The circle and scalloped circle were cut using the mini monograms cartridge. The scallop was cut at 4" and the corresponding circle was cut at 4 1/2".

The patterned paper used was Bo Bunny 'Tis the Season'. All cardstock used is Core'dinations. The red paper layer has been roughed up using a distressing tool. That way, I could bring out its beautiful core! The cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder was used on the scalloped circle and was distressed.

Here is the sketch:

The second card I made using the Christmas Cheer cartridge.

The stockings were cut at 2 1/4".

The patterend paper used is guessed it, 'Tis the Season' by Bo Bunny. The ribbon and button are from Papertrey Ink. The stamp sentiment is from the 'Holiday Trinkets' stamp set from Close to My Heart.

Here is the sketch....

Have a VERY Merry Christmas!
