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!

A Quilted Christmas - Snow Girl

 Welcome to Glenda's Cards

Happy Thanksgiving!
You may wonder why you are seeing a Christmas card. Lately I have had little time to craft and with Thanksgiving fast approaching, I decided to work on Christmas cards as time permits.

Today I am sharing another cute image on Cricut A Quilted Christmas! Card measures 5" x 6 1/2" cut from Recollection purple cardstock. All other papers are from the scrap stash.
Cricut Cartridge:
A Quilted Christmas - Page 37 Snow Girl is cut at 5" using the main images, Layer 1, and Layer 2 images. Of course, I had to make this a little Red Hat snow lady using the red and purple color theme!
Cuttlebug: Dots used on the red patterned mat.
Martha Stewart: Used the cut out snowflakes from Aspen Snowflakes edge punch.
Corner rounder used on the card and layers. Feather and rhinestone from stash.
