Merry Christmas - Day 1

Hello Everyone! I hope everyone is getting excited for Christmas. I finally got around to making a set of Christmas cards for my co-workers. I'll be featuring a new card each day this week leading up to Christmas.

I picked up these photo-holding cards from Paper Source when I was in Chicago earlier this year. I thought it would be a great frame for some of the cards I made. All of the cards I feature use stamps from Pink Cricut and images from the Winter Frolic cartridge.

This first one is Snowman 5 cut at 5 inches. I really like the use of the purple...he still looks like a cool dude without being too Christmas-y! To highlight the frame of the card I used a marker to dot along the edge.

This guy is really cute :)

On the inside of all of the cards I used this stamp from Pink Cricut that has a cute saying "Wishing you Sparkle, Wishing you Cheer, For a Bright and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year".

Check back every day this week to see what other cards I came up with (including a one for Wednesday's new Cooking With Cricut challenge)!
