Candy Cane card made using Christmas Cheer cricut cartridge.

Hello, everyone! This is Melanie and today's Christmas card is an oldie, but goodie. This was last year's 2nd Simple Card Monday. I just love this card because it is so easy to make a ton of of them to send out to all of your family and friends.




This cartridge was one of the first I ever bought. It has some super cute cuts on it and I think it is one that you will want to add to your Cricut cartridge library.

The cardstock is a mixture of Close to My Heart, SU!, and Bazzil. The stamp used is by Close to My Heart and is called 'Wonderful Season'.






Have a great day!!

What a great video! I think I found you guys around week 7. That is an awesome red ink, it's too bad they don't make that one anymore.
