Spirit of Christmas

Well, all I can say is FINALLY! I have been slacking in the card making area. It's so much easier to sit on the couch and let the baby play in the living room than take him down to my scrapbooking room. I know, I know, it's no excuse and I should go down while he's napping. Well, that's what I did today and to my surprise I finished this card that had been a work in progress. I cut the white circular/flowery/ornament things (I guess I'm not really sure what they are, huh? LOL) on my Cricut using the Storybook cartridge (and might I just add... love it!). I then mounted them on red and green paper and trimmed around the shape. The background paper is from CTMH (as is the ribbon) and the brads in the centers I believe were Karen Foster. I used the Fiskars Treading Water punch along the edge and a white pen for the dots along the outermost edge. I mimicked the dots on the inside left side of the card as well. In case it's hard to read, the outside reads "May the Spirit of Christmas" and the inside says "warm your heart all year long". This stamp came from the set Festive Thoughts by CTMH. I think this one is going to my Nana. I have yet to mail my Christmas cards. I better get moving!!! Happy Holidays :)
