Christmas Cards Part 2

Hi Everyone!  

Here is the second batch of cards I have made for this Christmas Season.  Some are really simple and quick to make and 2 will need a Cricut to create.  I made Snowmen from the Joy of the Season cartridge.  One of the things I really love about the Expression is that you can use that fill the page option or if you know how many exactly you need use the Quantity Option!  I wanted to make 12 Snowmen and was able to just enter 12 and the size I wanted to have the snowmen and I was ready to go.  Very nice!

Card 1 - 3 Snowmen


3 snowmen cut 4 inches.  I did color in the eyes with black marker, the pieces that were cut with my circut were just TOOO small!  The ribbon behind is a wired velvet ribbon sold on a large spool.  It is a really nice ruby red that you really can't see well in the picture.

Card 2 - Poinsettia 


Quick and easy!  this card has a pre-made Poinsettia with a little bell and wired ribbon (I ran into a good sale at a local surplus store) and connected the ribbon to the green paper and adhered it to the card base.  


Card 3 - JOY


Ok.. I really cheated here.. I was going through my scrap pile and found 3 green squares that were left over from another project... I had stickers from a paper pack... and there you have it a card!  Instead of using Sticles on the squares, I used the Quickie Glue Pen by Sakura to draw my Faux Stitches and then glitter for a bit of bling on the card. The background layer is from DCWV as were the stickers. 


Card 4 - Gatefold Snowman

   

Another quick card, a simple gate fold with a band across that has DCWV paper from their Christmas stack from last year cut to show only the wording, my Snowman from Joy of the Season and Green cardstock from AC Moore.  I drew on the snowflakes with a red and purple glitter pen.
