O Christmas Trees! card with Cricut Celebrate with Flourish



Today's fun Christmas 5" x 7" card was made by first taking a sheet of green cardstock sized at 10" x 7" and folding it.  I rounded the edges using a corner punch. Next, I layered various KI Memories papers and a striped ribbon for a background.  The pink paper was punched using the Fiskars threading water punch.  I love this bright KI Memories Christmas paper!



Using the Songbird Cricut cartridge, I cut the background shape for the trees (frame2) at both 4" (using the striped patterned paper) and 4-1/4"(white).  This cartridge has six shapes that are fantastic for making these backgrounds for your focal point die cut or stamp.

To make the trees, I used the Celebrate with Flourish Cricut Cartridge (available at Walmart) using Club Scrap and Core'dinations cardstocks, as well as DCWV glitter paper for the star and ornaments.  I overlapped them and for the center tree, I used pop dots to make it stand out.  Also to showcase the center tree, I used red ornaments and star.


My sentiment was from Papertrey Ink (PTI), which I mounted onto a die cut shape made using a die from PTI.  Inked edges help bring out the sentiment.


I decorated the inside using scraps from the project making a more complete card.


Join me tomorrow for another Christmas card, using more traditional colors (for the purists in the crowd)!

Have a great day!
