My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 99 Tis the Season

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is time for another inspirational challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Challenge 99 is "Tis the Season" - create a card/project which represents what you celebrate during this time of the year. My card celebrates the Holy birth of Jesus, the greatest gift of all, and what it means to us.

Using Cricut A Quilted Christmas cartridge, I chose to use one of the card features-this cuts the silhouette out of the card. I like the manger scene. The image is Joseph on page 51. The card is cut 5.5" from Recollections red cardstock. The images cut out very well at this size with the finished card measuring  5.5" x 4 5/16". Using the card feature on shift will cut the liner for the card.
I added the star from Cricut Christmas/Noel. It is cut at 1.5". 
The star and card liner are cut using a gold shimmer paper from a pack of Holiday Time Designer Paper. My photo does not capture the shimmer of the paper very well.

Visit My Sheri Crafts to see the inspiration by the design team and our guest designer. For more details on the projects, please visit the individual blogs. We love your visits and comments on our blogs!
Now it is your turn to play along with us! We look forward to seeing your cards/projects! Remember several Ooh la la awards will be given!

Thanks for your visits and comments!


  1. Such a BEAUTIFUL Christmas card, Glenda!!! I know what you mean about not being able to capture the shimmer, as I just made a card with shimmer spray and it's sad that you cannot see it in our photos, but I can totally appreciate how pretty yours looks in person!

  2. Such a beautiful scene on your card! It is quite lovely Glenda! So peaceful, and wonderful!

  3. You chose a beautiful cut, Glenda! And adding the star to it is perfect!

  4. Glenda,
    This is such a lovely card. I love this cut. The papers you used are just perfect. I ordered this cart a week ago. I cannot wait to get it so I can use it. I think the cartridge is one of the best Provo Craft has come out with in a while.

  5. This cut makes a beautiful card. Wonderful paper. Hope things are getting better.

  6. Beautiful silhouette cut! Gorgeous card!
