Christmas Flower

Another simple card but I think it turned out pretty. Started with a card from the DCWV box of cards. It already had the swirls and red flowers on it. I just added the circles, die cut flower and some embellishments. The word peace is a stamp and of course I added some red and lemon ice stickles for some bling.
Cricut cuts:

What's So Funny Snowman

I just love this stamp from Peachykeenstamps. I decided to try a little different color combo so combined green for Christmas and blue and white for winter. I colored the snowman with copics and added some stickles. The white border was done with the Martha Stewart border punch. The snowflakes are from the new cricut cartridge, When it's cold outside. I am leaving the card blank inside because I am not sure if I will use this as a Christmas card or a thank you card after the holidays.

Hello Kitty Shape Card

Isn't she cute? This was a very easy card to make. The Hello Kitty Cricut Cartridge has an option to make the cut into a card. So, so easy to do. I added flock to her antlers and glitter to her hat band and collar. The card was cut at 7 inches. The candy cane is from the Christmas Cheer cartridge and was cut at 2 inches.

Snowmen Melt Your Heart

I had fun with this card. Used so many different embellishments for this one. The card measures 5.5x5.5 I used a face stamp from PeachyKeen stamps and decided my snowman looked like a little lady so I gave her a big hat and heart buttons. If you look really close, you can see she is all done up and even has blue eyeshadow!! I used the cuttlebug snow embossing folder and then used platinum ink to bring the snowflakes to life. The snowflakes and snowlady have stickles to make them glittery and I used some diamond dust around the bottom of the snowlady. The sentiment is a stamp from the clearly defined line by printworks.
Cricut Cuts:
Snowman: Doodlecharms cart cut at 2.75 inches
Snowflakes: A Child's Year cart cut at 1 and 1.25 inches
Circle: George cart cut at 3.4 inches
hearts: George cart cut at 1.5 and 2.25 inches
Hat: Paper Doll Dress Up cart cut at 1.25 inches
Branches: Home Decor Cart cut at 1 inch

Santa Card

I absolutely love how this card turned out. I started with a DCWV premade card. I added the white circle with the stamped image and the holly, branches and swirls. The stamp is from inkadinkado and I colored it in with copics and added white flock to his hat. Couldn't resist adding some bling so the berries are rhinestones.

Cricut Cuts:
Circle: George cart cut at 2.75 inches
Red swirls: Joys of the Season cut at 2 inches
Holly: Joys of the Season cut at 2 inches
Branch: Martha Stewart branch punch

Birthday Card for SIL

Another card made using the scalloped rectangle. I think it works great as a background accent for stamped and diecut images. Not sure I am liking the blue background for the girl. I added some stickles on the flowers but I don't think they show up great in the picture. The card measures 5x7.
