We Three Kings

I make Christmas cards for our church's shut-in members every year and put them out for everyone in the congregation to sign.  So I make them 8.5" x 5.5" so there's room for lots of signatures.  I was trying to use up some stuff I had, so I used glossy CS for the outside and retired (a VERY long time ago) Bliss Blue for the inside.  The cut is from Quilted Christmas.  I used the card feature and sized the image to fit on my card front.  Then I hid the contour lines for the edges and the score lines so I was left with just the image.  

I didn't use any adhesive on this card.  I pierced two holes on the fold lines and threaded some silver cord through them and tied a bow.  The inside is embossed in silver and says "Have a blessed Christmas"--ODBD stamp.  This was a pretty simple card thanks to the Cricut, but I think it has a pretty good "WOW" factor.

Thanks for looking!  Have a wonderful day.
