Two Christmas Cards - A Quilted Christmas

I am way behind on my Christmas card making this year.  Just haven't been in the mood.  That's probably a bad thing to admit but it's the truth.  I decided to make a couple of cards today since the cartridge A Quilted Christmas was lying on my crafting table.  I used the first image on the overlay.  It is on page 29 in the handbook.  The hardest part about this cartridge is deciding on the colors of the image.  Here is my first card.

As you can see, I used dark red, bright red, green and cream cardstock.  I used a red gel pen for the holly berries and gold stickles for the flames on the candles.  I used Cricut Craft Room to create my different layers at 4.75, then cut them out and glued them together and put them on a 5X6.5" card base.  I added some Christmas ribbon I bought last year at Michael's at the end of the season.  All the layers make the card sort of 3 dimensional.

Another feature on this cartridge is an actual card feature.  It creates a card by cutting a silhouette of the image on the card and then cuts a lining to go under the silhouette.  This makes creating lots of Christmas cards very easy.  

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  God Bless You!!! Peggy


  1. Love them both. I love that we have the option of layers or really quick and easy.

  2. Very pretty! I have this cartridge out to play and was thinking of the same image! Love the way you did your card!
