It's Beginning to Look Like Christmas

Hello one and all!  This week's challenge at Exploring Cricut is to create a card, layout, or other paper craft to celebrate Christmas.  For my project I created another Christmas Card.
For this project I used the Sparkle & Shine paper line from CTMH along with Ruby, gray and juniper cardstock.  I added a silver and white ribbon.  I stamped the three trees with the stamp set Trim the Tree (CTMH) with Juniper ink, the two in back are in 2nd generation.  I then added a sparkle outline to the front tree.

Daily Project

We're just a few weeks away from Christmas and I thought I'd share a layout for today's daily project that brings back pleasant thoughts of summer.  Granted this particular activity was a TNT outing to McDonald's for ice cream after delivering candle jars to the shut ins.

Cricut Cuts:
Nursery Rhyme:  title:  1.71" then welded
Sweet Shop:  ice cream cones:  3.12"

I used liquid glass on the cones to make them stand out.

Pattern paper is from Memory Works
Cardstock is from stash

Christmas Cards Challenges

Welcome all!  This week's challenge at Exploring Cricut is to create a Christmas card.  For this challenge I combined my Cricut cut with stamping.
I used paper from the Sparkle and Shine line from CTMH along with Ruby cardstock also from CTMH.  The silver ribbon is from stamping up.  The stamp set used is Mary & Babe from CTMH, which was embossed in silver.
