Christmas card 2010

Wow, have you ever had a good idea for a craft project and then when it came time to actually do it you realized it was a lot more work than you thought? That is what happened to me this year with my Christmas cards. I have now embossed and glittered more than I thought I could. But of course once I made the first card and decided I liked it, I had to go ahead and make them. :) I think these cards are worth it, although I may rest a week or so before I start another craft project.-ha

I wrote Merry Christmas with a Cri-kit metallic pen.

Here are some of the cut files. I did most of the files in SCAL.

If I made mistakes or if you have any questions, please let me know.


Christmas Card 2009

I did not have a blog this year so I thought I would post some pictures of last year's Christmas card.
I used transperancies cut into squares and foam tape to make windows. I put micro beads and giltter inside the "window" shaker. 

Then I framed the window with scalloped frames from a Cricut cartridge and added snowflakes. Most of the snowflakes were from Cricut. The jeweled flakes were from Oreintal Trade.

I made a charm from one of my Cricut font cartridges, turned it sideways, stamped Merry Christmas, and put a snowflake over the charm opening.

I think they turned out really well. I know everyone had fun shaking it. :)

Haven't blogged for a while. I had 2 surgical proceedures and have been working on Chritmas cards.
