Warm Holiday Wishes - Joys Of The Season Cricut Cartridge

I FINALLY got started on my Christmas cards!! Always a little late, but they arrive on time and that's what's important, right? For this card, I used my "Joys Of The Season" cricut cartridge. It started as a little experiment and I ended up really liking the finished product. The Santa Face is from a retired CTMH stamp set called "Christmas Greetings" and I added some stickles and some fun flock to him to dazzle him up!! The snowflake is from a Martha Stewart punch and I just added some glitter to dazzle it up as well.

Want to try one yourself? Here's what I did:

On the bottom right of your Joys Of The Season pad, you'll see "foundation" with the ornament shape. This is the only button I used, but I added in different 'function' keys. So, to make the ornament card, you hit 'shadow', 'shift', 'foundation' and I cut it at 4". If you 'auto fill' you'll get 2 out of a 12x12 pg, but if you turn that pg once it's finished, you can actually get one more card. Now, to do the circles, you hit 'ornament', 'foundation' and I cut those at 3.5". Auto fill on a 12x12 sheet gives you 9 circles.

Now it's your turn! Have fun and stay tuned for more Christmas card samples coming your way!

This is such a cute idea! To bad all our Christmas cards didn't come like that..then we could hang them all from the tree!
