WEEK1: Fancy Card Friday with Christmas Noel

I hope you all have been getting oodles of inspiration this week!! Hopefully with Monday's simple cards and Friday's fancy cards, you guys will have more than enough inspiration to get started on your holiday card making venture!

Both cards I made for today is with the FABULOUS Christmas Noel. I knew as soon as I saw this cartridge that it was something special. These cuts on this cart have such a Victorian feel to them. I just love that about this cartridge.

The first card I made using the snowflake cut. I am such a fan of snowflakes and this one hits the mark! I cut it at 3' and used the shadow, blackout, layer, and original cute. I find that when you layer your cuts with all the layers possible it adds a tremendous amount. Especially with the solutions cartridges! The paper from last years SU! holiday mini catalog. The ribbon is also SU! and the snowflake is sprayed with glimmer mists. The sentiment is CTMH 'Christmas Melodies'.




The next card I made using one of the ornament cuts. This has got to be my favorite ornament cut of all time!! It is just so pretty!! I love love love this cut. I also layered it like the snowflake. It is also cut at 3'. The paper used is CTMH 'Aspen'. The sentiment is 'December Word Puzzle' by CTMH.





Make sure you are leaving comments everyday because it increases your chance to win this must have cartridge! Oh and don't forget to check back with us tomorrow because Joy has something really cool to show you for Crafty Gift Saturday!

I am loving this blog - one request -- could you show one snapshot of all your layers before you assemble them on the Cricut cuts -- I know in my mind you say cut all the layers but I need to see it once -- don't need the step-by-step assembly -- just a quick snap of the cut layers before assembly.

thanks and thank you for the hard work
