My Project
Cricut, Christmas Cheer, Christmas Card

I was excited to use the oldie but goodie Christmas Cheer cartridge for this card!  I picked it up this summer at a warehouse clearance sale and am just happy to start using it for my Christmas cards!  I used the scalloped card cut at the back of the handbook and cut it at 7 1/2" so it would fit in an A2 sized envelope.  It has a matching envelope option, but I didn't use it :)  Anyway, the ornament is cut at 3" and I used some silver sparkle paper from DCWV Twinkle Glints stack.  The sentiment is from a Hero Arts Holiday stamp set and the embellishments are from Pez-A-Doodle (my DT sister Marti).  My mat papers are from Hobby Lobby open stock 12x12 paper and I rounded the corners with my Hobby Lobby large corner rounder.  I copied the mats for the inside, but cut a white scalloped mat from Elegant Edges at 4" in order to write a message.  Super simple to put together!!!  I have a video to show you how it all came together so I hope you'll watch!  I am also linking this up over at Craftin' Desert Divas and Little Scrap Pieces.  Thanks for checkin' in!!!
