Silhouette Christmas in August?

Hello everyone!  I am going to take a break from the Cricut Artiste cartridge today and share a Silhouette Cameo Christmas card with you.  I found this fun nine tile cut at the Silhouette store and thought it could be adapted to be an adorable Christmas card front.

After cutting the basic pieces and assembling the tiles I matted the tiles on the dark green square.  I wanted a white matting behind the dark green so I added the white rectangle with a fun lower edge.  I dressed up the card by adding two buttons with red and white twine.  I used a shimmery heavy red cardstock for the base card and attached the card front to the card.  And that was it - a fun and easy Christmas card!!

One more word about Christmas cards - I tend to made several styles and themes.  I like the traditional nativity cards I had previously shared in the THIS post, as well as the fun style of another tri-fold card I shared in THIS post.  The three different styles of cards are intended for three different groups of recipients.  I will be crafting some really pretty poinsettia cards in the coming weeks and they will be for yet another group of recipients.    Also, I tend to make multiples of each card!  I made four of these fun Christmas tile cards, eight of the nativity cards and six of the fun tri-fold cards!  

In the coming weeks I will be sharing more Christmas cards.  If you see something that you like, feel free to save the photo and make your own version of the card.   I hope to create something that appeals to each of you!
