Merry Christmas Card

Today I have for you a simple and quick Christmas card. I got the idea for this card from a magazine where I saw that they had stamped a simple Christmas tree shape on patterned paper. Of course I looked at that and said, I can recreate that with my Cricut and this is what I came up with. All of the patterned papers is from the My Minds Eye 12 Days of Christmas 6" X 6" paper pad which is two sided paper and I used both sides of the paper on my card. I started with a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" cream colored card base. I cut a mat from some red paper, which is the reverse of the middle tree, from the paper pad at 4" X 5 1/4" and then cut a mat from the Merry Christmas paper at 3 3/4"X 5".  My trees are cut at 3 1/4" using the base layer of the Christmas Tree on the Celebrate With Flourish Cricut Lite cartridge and the reverse of the two red mats. My small red mat is cut at 2 1/4" X 5" and I used a scalloped border punch on it. I then cut a blue patterned paper, which is the reverse of the Merry Christmas paper. This was cut at 1 3/4" X 5" and I used the same scalloped border punch on it. I added the trees with foam dots and finished them with some Golden Rod Stickles on the stars and I painted the tree trunks with some Cowboy Glimmer Glaze. This card is colorful and went together quickly so would be easy to produce multiples.
