52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT18-19 – May 11th – Colours – Brown, Silver, Turquoise

I made my card that month using my Cricut Explore Air and a wonderful SVG files from A Little Scrap of Heaven called Jiggle Bell Friends. The files are sold as a bundle and I used the reindeer. All the papers are from my stash. I added highlights with a white gel pen and Copics. The snowflakes are stickers I purchased during Christmas from the Dollar Store. I added a pom-pom nose vs the SVG file one provided. The finished card is 5×7.

For my card this week, I decided to make a 3D pop-up card. I have had this SVG file from The Dreaming Tree for some time and decided it was time to put out my Cricut and make one. I purchased the Tis The Season Pop Up Cards SVG Bundle (it includes 3 separate pop-up card designs) and this particular card is called, Let It Snow Pop Up Card SVG. I had some problems cutting it out. My Cricut didn’t like the card stock I selected, and the pop-up feature was problematic! I preserved and the results were amazing.

Simply Create Too – Challenge #149 – May 3 to May 31= AG/No Twist

1 Simply Create 2 DT

Hello everyone and welcome to Simply Create Too May’s Challenge #149 Anything Goes – No Twist. I am sorry I am late posting but I was on holidays. When it snowed here in Ontario, Canada in April, I booked a Carribean Cruise. My card is from A Little Scrap of Heaven called, Christmas Pickle. It was an SVG digital cutting file that I used with my Cricut Explore Air 2. I used cardstock from my stash and for extra dimension, I added texture to the fur around his hat with an embossing folder and details to the pickle using Copic markers. The Christmas Pickle Story was a free download from the internet (Google Search).

52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT16-19 – April 27th – Stash: Printed Holiday papers

This week at the 52 Christmas Card Challenge we are looking for those pretty Christmas papers we stash away and never use. I made 2 versions of my card. The first version, I used a classic patterned paper with gold and black, but the end result, while pretty, don’t look like a Christmas card so I remade it using my favourite patterned paper by Carte Bella and suede paper by Paper Wishes. I am not sure if it is still being made, so I have my own little stash of it in various colours. To made my first card I used the standard setting provided with the High Heel SVG download by The Dreaming Tree. I downloaded the file to my computer, uploaded the design to Design Studio and cut out the pieces using my Cricut. The first card is A2 4.25 x 5.5. For the second card, It was just so darn pretty I had to create it in a 5 x 7 size. Vs using the 4 petal flowers included, I opted to resize the poinsettias from The Dreaming Tree, Poinsettia Planter/Christmastime Bundle to make the card more “Christmasy”. Note: Currently this card is being offered as a free download and they even have a full assembly video sailable. christmas shoe

This will be my final card I make as a member of the C.R.A.F.T. Design Team. It has been a fabulous 4.5 years and I will truly miss working with Jo and her wonderful team. The C.R.A.F.T. challenge this week is to distress our project. I used a SVG digital file simply called Ice Skate card delightful cut by Digital Delights by Louby Loo. I downloaded the project to Cricut Design Space and cut out the pieces. Before assembling the skate I distressed and inked each piece using the Tim Holtz distress blade tool and Distress ink. Vs using the circle holes for the skate, I opted to use my We R Memory Keeping Eyelet punch and used twine laces. I added a Merry tag by Kaisercraft.
