The current Cricut Cardz Challenge is to make a project based on one of our favorite Christmas Carols using any colors and cartridges you like. The current challenge at Paper Cutz is Jingle All The Way, to make a project using a Jingle Bell image. So my card will be entered into both challenges.
I started with white card stock cut and scored to make a 4 1/4” X 5 1/2” card base. I added a dark red mat, then a dark green mat then the patterned paper mat which is from My Minds Eye 12 Days of Christmas 6” X 6” paper pack.
My Jingle Bells image was cut at 3 1/2” from the Creative Memories Tis The Season Cricut Cartridge. I cut all the layers for the image. For the Jingle Bells I had a thin metal sheet here in brass so cut the bells with that. It is actually very thin and I used a pressure of 4 and blade depth of 4 and I think I could have backed off the pressure one more. Because the metal is so thin it was not possible to get the images off the mat without wrinkling them so the bells look a little worn but I love how they turned out. To finish the card I added some snowflake buttons and Christmas Red stickles to my letters to help the stand out. I adhere the whole image to my card front with some foam tape.
Thanks for visiting.
