Christmas with a Difference


Was playing around with my Cricut the other day and cut out this envelope from the Christmas Cheer Cartridge. Didn't know what to do with it so it sat about for a few days before I decided to make a Christmas envelope and mini card. The papers used are BG "Figgy", ribbon from my stash and the flowers are what I bought recently at a garden centre. I bought loads of different bunches and just cut off the flower or leaf that I want to use. Makes a change from Prima flowers and works out so much cheaper! The insert is also covered with BG and stamped with Imaginisce and coloured with Sakura pens. Really enjoyed making this didi card, and think I will make a few more. This fits in with this weeks Lilley of the Valley Challenge which is Christmas Cards.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!

This is a great little card. I have a cricut but have never really played with it - I use it now and again to cut out circles etc, but really must sit down and play with it to find out exactly what it can do.

Have a great weekend.
