A Wonderful Season - Christmas Card a Day!

For the first card today I'm using the Believe paper set. Each piece of patterned paper in the set is completely different on the backside. Here are the backs of two of the papers. You'll also need crystal blue ink and some sparkles.

Cut a piece of pattern paper 4" by 5 1/4", distress with chocolate or crystal blue ink. Cut a circle on your Cricut using the Art Philosophy cartridge 4" in diameter out of the blue polka dot paper. Distress and add to the top of the card.
Cut a card base 8 1/2" by 5 1/2" and fold in half. I didn't distress this one because I wanted the edges a crisp white. Attach the green and blue paper piece to the center of your folded card.

Cut a piece of white daisy cardstock 1/2" by 4" and distress. Attach to card and stamp A Wonderful Season of...." stamp from the set that comes with the Art Philosophy cartridge. Inside the card stamp "joy."

Cut out a snowflake on the cricut measuring 3 3/4" in white daisy cardstock. Attach to the large circle.

Now it's the fun part, take your blue and green sparkles and go to town decorating the snowflake and the "wonderful season" phrase. I find the easiest way to pick up the sparkles is by using a piercing tool to stick into the glue and lift. If you like any of the products shown here, please click on the links. Card two will be posted later today!
