CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • White card stock
  • Cream card stock
  • Christmas pearls and jewels
  • Star shaped Goosebumps
  • Sharing the Holidays stamp set; by Renee
  • Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist Sapphire a
  • Crystal Stickles
  • Foam squares large and small
  • Blue Shabby Embossing Enamel
  • Water Mark Ink

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Using your Cricut Imagine, with both the Just Because Cards and Enjoy the Seasons cartridges: cut 6" apple card using white card stock and print with snowflake paper. Cut 6" apple card (s) and print with the light blue paper on the white card stock. After doing the (s) cut; leave on matt and spray with Tattered Angles sapphire Glimmer Mist, after dry, spray with Tattered Angles silver Glimmer Mist. I find if I leave the paper on the mat and let it dry, I get less warping and curling with using the Glimmer Mist. You will also need a small piece of the light blue card stock treated with the Glimmer Mists to stamp your sentiment on.
Using the cream cardstock, cut oval using Plantin Schoolbook. I had to come up with my own template using Cricut Design Studio, template attached. After cutting leave on Cricut mat and spray with Tattered Angles sapphire Glimmer Mist, after dry, spray with Tattered Angles silver Glimmer Mist. Cut oval down middle by hand.
Using white cardstock, cut 5.7" tree layer 2 (so you have only the tree) twice (page 22 of Enjoy the Seasons manual) , cut 5.7" tree layer 3, stars only.
Attach one half of the oval to bottom of card, light blue sprayed paper to the front edge of card and one of the tree layer 1 cuts to the snowflake card base. Using crystal Stickles, put a dot on the end dots on the snowflakes on the card base, let dry.
Take 2nd tree layer 2 cut; attach Christmas Pearls and Jewels to "decorate" tree, I put pearls over the pre-printed ornaments on each tree and the small jewels in between pearls.
Using small foam squares, attach a Goosebumps covered star over every star on the tree you decorated. Using large foam squares, attach 2nd half of oval directly over first half and decorated tree directly over your undecorated tree, giving a 3D look.
On remaining piece of printed and Glimmer Misted blue cardstock, using VersaMark ink, stamp sentiment, using blue Shabby Embossing Enamel, sprinkle over stamped sentiment, tap off excess and set with heat gun. Trim close to sentiment, using trimmed piece, cut a duplicate using the printed, sprayed light blue card stock. Attach unstamped piece to front of card, using a double layer of large foam pads, attach stamped sentiment directly over unstamped corresponding piece.
