Hello everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
I have a couple of things to share with you today. First I would like to show you an easel card that I put together for the Santa Slacker's Challenge going on over at the Cricut Message Board. This week's challenge was to create a card featuring an ornament. I decided to use this challenge to do a bit more exploring on my new 'Tis The Season cartridge. My own personal challenge is to spend more time with each cartridge and learn just what it has to offer. As I continue to explore this cartridge, I am finding more and more features that I love....
* Patterned paper - g.c.d. - Home For The Holidays paper stack
* Ornament - 'Tis The Season cartridge, image found on page 57. Cut at 3.25 inches, cutting the bottom layer twice and adhering with pop dots.
* I added silver Stickles to the "metal" portion of the ornament and used Martha Stewart's Limeade glitter for the green sections.
* A Martha Stewart punch was used for the fun green border along the bottom. I also covered it in Limeade glitter.
* The sentiment is also from 'Tis The Season. This is the first time I have used the Phrase Feature on this cartridge and I really like it! This phrase is found on page 41 and is cut at 2.5 inches. I cut the bottom layer twice and added pop dots between the layers. More Limeade glitter on the green portion of this cut.
* The hot pink gems are from Recollections.
Here is a side view so you can see the layers....
I have to say I am really loving this 'Tis The Season cartridge!
