Woodsy Christmas Ornaments Card

Hello everyone.  With less than two weeks until Christmas, the Bitten By The Bug 2 Design Team is offering you some last minute Christmas ornament crafting inspiration this week.  Our wonderful DT sister, Maureeen, challenged the DT to use a Cricut Christmas ornament (bauble for your Brits), or to use Cricut Cuts to make an ornament!  

I have been spending time with my Cricut Explore lately so I created a Christmas card using two Cricut cartridges and an SVG cut.  I used Cricut's Winter Frolic for the tree limb, Cricut's The First Few Years cartridge for the labels, and Miss Kate's Cutables for the ornaments (Ornaments with Flourish). 

I wanted my card to have a festive yet woodsy feel to it.  I used green prints, herringbone prints and dark greens and browns to achieve the woodsy feel.  And for the festive element, I used bright solids to create my ornaments.  I finished the card with doodles and a Close To My Heart sentiment stamp.  

I know this is a busy time of year, but try to take a bit of time and join our Cricut Challenge this week.  Drop by Bitten By The Bug 2 where Maureen introduces this week's challenge.  Check the rules on our sidebar, then join us in this week's challenge by linking your project under this week's post.  

I know the Close To My Heart Rolling Tote sold out quickly last week.  We are expecting another shipment this week so do check my CTMH on-line store daily this week!

Thanks for dropping by today!!
