Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge #47





Hello Friends! Wow, it's Friday already!! I can't believe how fast time has flown! Well, Friday is my favorite day. . .mainly because I can stay up late. It's the only day I don't have to get up early for anything the next day. Ahhhh, Fridays are LOVELY!!! Actually, there is another reason that it's a good day. . .today is challenge day at Christmas Stampin All Year Long! Yay!

Debbie of the Paper Garden is our host this week and she came up with an awesome challenge! The challenge is to create a card using "die cuts"!! She must have been reading my mind because well. . .me and my Cricut are best friends and I really wanted to create a Christmas card using my Cricut. This challenge is perfect and oh, so fun!!!

Be sure to stop by Christmas Stampin All Year Long and check out all the FABULOUS cards the design team created!!! Hope y'all will play along this week!!



The other day Michaels had a sale on their Cricut and I bought the "Wild Card" cartridge. Oh. . .I LOVE, LOVE this cartridge. It's the perfect cartridge for a card maker because the files focus primarily on card shapes and fancy envelopes. It also has tags and other fun shapes that compliment your card.

I cut the scallop shaped card base using the Wild Card cartridge and the snowman/Christmas tree design was cut using myscrapchick.com file "My Snowman Collection". I love this set! It has a lot of cute snowman files as well as different card frames. . .perfect for Christmas cards!!!



All I did was stamp the background with snowflakes, shaded the edge of the snowman image and the white background. and paper pieced the images together. That's about it! Be sure to check out the awesome cutting files at myscrapchick.com! I love them all!!!

Anyway. . .I think I'll cut my post short. . .lately, my posts seem to be getting longer and longer! LOL! Okay. . .stop by Christmas Stampin All Year Long and say "hello"!! We'd love to hear from you!!

Hope you all have a beautiful Friday!!
