Merry Christmas card - Christmas Card a Day!

Make sure to check out the clearance items that were just added to my website, click on the shopping link to the right and then "while supplies last."

No need to always use the traditional Christmas colors when making your cards. How about sweet leaf, sky and white together? Take a look! Cut your card front 5 1/2" by 4 1/4" out of crystal blue cardstock. Dry emboss with your embossing tool and the groove in your trimmer 1/16" from the sides of the cardstock then sand to bring out the white core. You'll want to distress all pieces with sky.

Cut a piece of the beautiful Believe polka dot pattern paper 5 1/4" by 4", distress and glue to center of sky cardstock.

Cut a piece of white cardstock 4 1/4" by 3" and dry emboss lines about 1/2" apart, no need to sand. Attach to center of the card.

Cut out a 3" present and ribbon using your Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge with sky and sweet leaf cardstock. Attach together and glue onto card as shown.

Cut a strip of the green star patterned paper from the Believe set 3" by 3/4", distress and attach 1/8" from top of the white cardstock piece.

Stamp Merry Christmas using the Christmas Love stamp set using sky ink onto a white cardstock piece cut 2 3/4" by 1/2" and attach to green patterned paper.

Add some sparkles at the ends of the Merry Christmas word and then attach the whole card front to a white cardstock card base that you've cut 8 1/2" by 5 1/2" and folded in half. If you like what you see here, click on the links above to get your own card supplies. See you tomorrow!


  1. Cute card. I love the embossing on it.

  2. This is such a FUN card! Personally, I think I'd add some more glitter. Maybe on the present. But I love it!
