For this week’s Challenge at C.R.A.F.T., we are looking for a shaker card. I went a little overboard and created a Treat Cup card and filled it with candies that “shake”. The template SVG files are from The Cutting Cafe: Halloween Treat Cup Cards. There are three fabulous card designs: spider, pumpkin and ghost. If you don’t have a cutting machine, they also include a PDF that you can print a cut out by hand. I simply followed the directions, using my Cricut Explore Air, papers from my stash, candy and a little paint and viola! The card even comes with a special envelop box.

The 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge this week is to make a pop-up or cube card. You can find many videos/templates on YouTube, Pinterest and other search sites. You can also buy dies and svg files to easily make these cards. Since I own a Cricut Explore Air, I simply popped in my All Occasions Box Cards Cartridge and made a card that easily fits into an A2 size envelope. After I cut out the files, I assembled the card and added a couple of glitter stars, and Sue Wilson’s Creative Expressions Festive Collection Let It Snow Die.

This week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, our challenge is to use lace on our Christmas Card. Well, I have been hearing a lot about these new “Bow” cards and decided to check them out. Wow! they are simply gorgeous. Just Google bow cards for YouTube videos and numerous beautiful examples. I purchased the template from sandrasscrapshop.blogspot.nl *. I also received written permission from Sandra to make and display my card on the 52CCT website. She sent me the bow card template as a PDF file that allows you to use scissors and a SVG file that you can use the various cutting machines. I used my Cricut. *Please note: there are numerous fabulous projects available to purchase at Sandra’s Scrap Shop. I used various Christmas papers, lace, gems, snowflake buttons from my stash to create my Christmas bow card. I used a heavy cardstock to make the actual card attached to the back of the bow, but I think I will also attach a small loop so the person receiving the card can also hang it as a decoration. I hope you like my first attempt. I will be making more!

This week at Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge, we are looking for this famous Christmas sweet treat, the Candy Cane. I had my Cricut out so I decided to make a Christmas card using the Teddy Bears on Parade cartridge. I added a small candy cane from another cartridge and the little Santa’s helper is holding a gift and a candy cane.

This week’s Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge is seeing Bells. I decided to break out my Cricut machine and the Holly and Ivy cartridge. I resized the suggested image size so I could combine the wording and bells into one card. I used cardstock from my stash.
It is not so soon to start your Christmas card stash!
