Pop Up Box Christmas Cards

The base, flaps and card mats were all cut with the Cricut Explore.

This card uses embellishments from Michaels, snowflakes that I cut up from the Dollar Tree.  The paper is from The Paper Studio-  "Christmas on Amesberry Street."

I'm really loving the red, black and silver combo.  The paper is from DCWV "Candy Cane Lane."  The cut outs are from the collection.  I used red and silver pipe cleaners for extra embellishing.

This is the ugly sweater card.  The base is from DCWV "Candy Cane Lane."  The ugly sweaters are from the Recollections collection "Say Freeze." 

This card is also from the DCWV "Candy Cane Lane" collection.  I just added some stickers I found found at the Dollar Tree.

Another  DCWV "Candy Cane Lane" card.  I again used the Snowflakes from the Dollar Tree as filler.

Final card from DCWV "Candy Cane Lane."  The embellishments are from some of my leftover scraps.

Have a great day.  Make it a crafty one.

Anna Griffin Christmas Card

I used the Anna Griffin Christmas Kitsch Cricut cartridge.  This card is a 5 x 5 card.  The paper used was the white shiny Recollections paper from Michaels.  You can find it where the individual paper sheets are sold.  The embellishments are cut from brown multi-colored scrap paper.  I used red Stickles to decorate the tree and the deer's nose.  Silver Stickles were used for the snowflakes and brown enamel pen was used for the deer's eye.

I love this Anna Griffin cartridge.  The cartridge also comes with matching envelope so you don't have to worry about trying to figure it out.

Have a great day.  Make it a crafty one.

First Shaker Card

This is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card.  Used the  Cricut Explore to cut, score, slice out the heart shape and write on the card.  I used a Cuttlebug Swiss dot embossing folder and some ribbon from my stash.

The acetate is from some packaging.  Getting the foam tape the right height and adding the glitter and sequins was a little tricky.  Now I know what to do, hopefully the next one is a little easier.

My folks have been married for 55 years!

Have a great day.  Make it a crafty one.
