Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog # 139 – Holiday Wishes

Happy Cyber Monday! Thank you for taking a moment out of your cyber shopping for those great holiday deals to join in the challenge fun over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog!  In step with the holiday season officially in full swing as of midnight this past Thursday, the challenge is to make a  holiday card!  Make sure you use  at least one Cricut cut and head on over and see what the design team has in store for your inspiration and link up a fabulous holiday card yourself!

For this card, I really wanted to break into some amazing holiday designer paper by Authentique (Yuletide and Jolly) I happened upon at my local scrapbooking store. I cut the card down to 5.5×4.25 inch (it fits in an A2 envelope).  I then cut down the next layer by a quarter of an inch and used a Chomp-A-Dile 1/2 inch to round out the edges.  I inked the edges of both the base card and first layer with Close to My Heart- Topiary.

Using Storybook cartrige,  cut two rectangles at 3 and 2.75 inches. I again rounded out the corners with a Chomp-A-Dial and inked the edges. The sentiment was from My Pink Stamper- Christmas Wishes.  The ink was Close to My Heart– Holiday Red. I finished this sentiment tag with Pop Dots for layering and twisted the waxed twine around the top layer.

For the candy cane, I used Gingerbread cartridge and cut the first layer only at 3 inches. I cut it 3 times and then using Pop Dots, I layered each candy cane. Using the Crop-A-Dile, I punched two holes into the top layer and then added the poinsettia brads.  I then added waxed twine bow using a Glue Dot.

Thank you for stopping by and head on over to Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog and link up an inspirational project! Thanks for sharing a piece of “getting into the Holiday Spirit” pie with me!
