All Spruced Up

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I enjoy making Christmas cards! Can you tell! It seems that I need to start earlier in the year with Christmas card making than waiting until December. Here is another card using a Cricut cut that I have not used before. Finished card measures 5" x 6 1/2" cream card stock. Patterned papers are K&Company.

Cricut Cartridges:
Holiday Cards 28- Christmas Tree Cute Card is cut 7.85" wide x 5.5" high from Recollections red cardstock. I hand cut the inside layer from a K&Company patterned paper. Hand cut areas of solid paper were also used for the backing of the stars and the white areas. After looking at the finished card, I decided I wanted a larger card. Yes I did! I cut the front off the card and layered it on a 5" x 6 1/2" cream card. This gave me more space to fill with more pretty papers! I frayed a piece of green dot paper for the bottom layer of the card.
Winter Frolic - All Spruced Up is cut 3" wide.

Martha Stewart Swirling Lace edge punch is used on the green tree patterned paper. I added pearls and a cream crinkle ribbon bow for the finishing touch! I am pleased with the finished card even if it did take extra steps to achieve!
