A Quilted Christmas - Chimney

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Recently I purchased Cricut A Quilted Christmas cartridge and finally found a little time to play with it. This cartridge has some wonderful images on it - hard to choose which image to start with- but I chose the first image on the overlay. Love Santa coming down the chimney! 
Visiting Card Creations By Lorraine, I noticed that Lorraine had an excellent video on how to make a shaped card using this chimney image. She is so talented and inspiring! I wanted to give this shaped card a try! Thanks so much Lorraine for sharing your lovely creations and videos with us!

This image is on page 29 in the handbook and I cut the images at 5" using Cricut Craft Room. The chimney on shift has some very tiny little berries which did not cut well so I used Stickles for some random berries. On layer 1 shift, I used Hide Contour in the CCR to be able to cut the holly in green and the boots in gray. Layer 2 shift shows small cut pieces that may go on the candle flame, but again this is so tiny. Using the hide contour feature I cut only the white for Santa"s waistline. Gold Stickles were used on the candles.

Other supplies include the Martha Stewart punch for the fern greenery. Thanks Lorraine for reminding me that I had the punch! The Poinsettia flower is Making Memories that has been in my stash for several years. 

I had so much fun making this shaped card and like the results! Thanks again Lorraine for the inspiration! Now I may be able to make more shaped cards without the use of the Gyspy, Design Studio or CCR.
Now head on over to Card Creations By Lorraine and check out Lorraine's amazing talent! I am sure you will be inspired!

Thanks for your visits and comments.

  3. Hi Glenda,
    Thank you so much for your kind words. I am so happy I could give you some card making ideas. I just love seeing all the different decorations that have been added to this mantal. Yours turned out great. I love the little poinsettia that you added to yours. Thank you for adding my link to your post. I'm sure there are others that would love to make a shape card without a gypsy or CCR.
