Anna's Window Frame Card Cartridge- Window Frame Card is cut 5.5" wide x 11" high from the plaid paper. Frame is cut 4. 6" wide x 5.882" high from the gold dot paper.
Anna's Christmas Greetings - These are Print and Cut images. Sentiment "Joy to You" is cut 2.75" wide. Poinsettia is cut 1.25" wide. I cut two of the roses with one being cut using flip feature.
For the inside of the card--- Celebrate the Season. Image was placed on the cutout from the gold dot paper.

 As mentioned, this is my first try cutting the card. It is folded at the score line which lets the numbers stand up. I cut two of the inside liners for the card from the yellow. The second one is placed on the back side of card to cover the area where the numbers were cut out. Looks ok to me!

Thanks for your visits and comments!
