CardzTv is having her last Christmas in July challenge this week. You can use any colors you want but you must have a Christmas tree on the card. I am also entering this card for the Fantabulous Cricut Monday Challenge which was also a Christmas in July challenge.
I decided to use the tree from Create-a-Critter. I cut the tree at 2 1/4". using the real dial size button on my Gypsy. I also used the hide contour feature to hide the face on the top layer of the tree. I also cut the string of Christmas lights at 1/2" and the star at 1" which is also from Create-a-Critter. Again, with the star I used the hide contour feature on my Gypsy to hide the larger of the two stars as I only wanted one. The white card base is 4 1/4" X 5 1/2". The red mat is 4 1/8" X 5 3/8". The patterned paper is from a My Minds Eye Christmas paper pack I bought last year and is cut at 4" X 5 1/4". The other red mat was cut from Just Because Cards cartridge and I used my Gypsy to resize it to 3 1/4" X 5". I ran this through my Cuttlebug and embossed it with the Swiss Dots folder. The word Joy was cut at 1 1/4" from the Storybook cartridge. I shadowed it in white so it would show up on the red mat. I added some gold stickles to the star and matching stickles to each of the light bulbs to give them some shine and sparkle. Thanks for looking.
