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.
