Today the design team at Exploring Cricut is having a blog hop! The rules for the hop were simple. We were to make a Christmas card. The only stipulation was that we needed to use our Cricut. Easy peasy, right? Right. Here's hoping you are getting some good ideas for what to do for your own Christmas cards. :)
So, onto the hop. If you came from Annette's blog, you are in the right spot! If you didn't, why not start at the beginning with Diana's blog.
For my portion of the blog hop, I used A Quilted Christmas Cricut cartridge. My card is 5"x7". I had in my stock A Merry Christmas paper pad from Die Cuts With a View and trimmed that to 4 7/8" x 6 7/8". I then used one of the Santa's from A Quilted Christmas and cut him at 5.5". I layered all the pieces together and used some ribbon to give the card some flare. The one thing I did not do was use the eyes that were cut out from the Cricut. They were incredibly too small so I went ahead and took a black marker and colored in the eyes. Much better, and much less stressful. :) Check out the pictures below.
Now, onto the rest of the hop, check out the lineup below and happy hopping!
