Some Cricut Christmas Cards

Hey, all! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year! I made these cards before Christmas but haven't had time for blogging what with everything else going on. I made so many cards for other people this year I didn't get my own made--how's that for screwed up priorities? LOL! I made 20 cards for our shut-ins at church, 15 for our staff appreciation gifts, plus a bunch for paying customers (woo-hoo!). So one of my New Year's resolutions this year is to make 1 Christmas card a week this year so that I will have a large stash and I can be ahead of the game next year. I wrote it down and stuck it on the fridge, so we will see what happens!

This first card is made using the Winter Frolic cartridge. I think I cut this cute little mouse at 3". I embossed the body and the scarf and covered the bow with Stickles and stamped on the package. The tag and sent. are from PTI's Tiny Tags. Paper is SU, except for base (Gina K Heavy Base Weight cream). I used a little black rhinestone for the eye.

This one was basically a CASE of a card that was on the front of the Nov issue of PaperCrafts. I absolutely love this stamp by Flourishes--one of the best Santa's ever! I used the Elegant Edges cart to cut out the layers and stamped Santa in Cherry Cobbler. Papers are SU except for GK HBW cream for base again.

Here again I have used the Elegant Edges cart--I just love it! I embossed the frame. The stamp set is long retired by SU--Solemn Stillness, embossed in Silver. Colors are Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze. Base is PTI white.

Thanks for stopping by, even though I know everyone's probably sick of the holidays! One more Christmas card post tomorrow and then it's back to our regularly scheduled programming.
