Joyful Sounds Christmas Card - Cricut Birthday Bash




So, how about purple and light teal for Christmas?  I LOVE IT!

Today's purple card is from the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge and is made up of the card shape itself and then the ticket shape mounted on top of the card.  See below for the actual cut shown in the handbook on page 30:


I cut the card at 4-1/4" and the final dimensions of the card are 4-1/4" x 7".  The ticket shaped section was cut at 4-1/4" and also at 4" so I could layer the pieces.

The paper is Cosmo Cricket's Mitten Weather line and I used the angel and snowflake chipboard shapes from the Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather Ready Set Chip collection.  I popdotted the ticket section to give some dimension.  The ribbon and stamped sentiment are by Papertrey Ink. The card base was cut using Core'dinations cardstock - a perfect color match!



Inside I added some cream cardstock, a strip of coordinating paper and a stamped sentiment from Papertrey Ink.  You can see all the pop dots used on the front of the card...

I extended the angel on the front so her wing peeks over the edge of the card. I did that because I knew I would have to make an envelope to fit the card due to its size, thus I could accommodate shapes extending beyond the boundaries of the card base.  Below is my envelope with the front decorated.


The tag shape is also from the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge and I decorated it with another chipboard snowflake.  I will be handing this card to another teacher at Christmastime so I can add dimensional items like this.  I left the rest of the front blank and will add in the "to/from" later.

I swear I look so foward to recieving emails everyday from Everyday Cricut with such beautiful inspirational creations. I am brand new to blogging and am really excited to be a follower of this one! P.S. I love non-traditional colors for christmas cards, the teal blue and white remind me of the colors of the weather of winter and not just the Christmas holiday in it's self!

Great job on your card! I love that it's not the "typical" holiday colors...I think this alone would make it stand out. But, then, you add in all the beautiful details & it would be impossible for it to not stand out. I am DETERMINED to make all my cards this year, which I did last year, but here's the catch, I'm going to enjoy making them & I'm going to get them done EARLY!! I became a follower so, please, keep the inspiration coming!!

I just received my cricut (early christmas). Thanks for your great site- i am learning slow but sure!

Jess said...

I have been poking around this site and I am dumbfounded! My dad always tries to get me something for Christmas that I would never buy myself. I am a quilter and I was watching commercials pre-xmas and this Cricut commercial would not get out of my head. I knew I just needed one! Now, for 3 days, I am trying to figure it out and this blog is amazing! I am in love and I haven't even made anything! Can't wait to make all my cards for the year and begin some great applique quilts! The things you make and post on here are wonderful! Thank you for this wonderful blog!
