Santa Is Watching

Hello friends! Welcome to my Christmas project for The Merry Christmas Challenge Blog, where every challenge, every week, is an Anything Goes Christmas challenge.  I am on the tinsel team - we like to sparkle and shine(!) - and will be posting every-other Wednesday.

I recently tried something new on my Christmas cards - I tried adding Cricut cuts to embellish vintage images on a card.  I have to say that I am enjoying this change!  In fact, I have printed and cut three of my vintage image cards in mass quantities in order to assemble them this weekend at a card making get away.  I plan to finish assembling the majority of the cards I will be mailing out.

Today's vintage image, and any other vintage images I may use, was found on Pinterest.  I have actually created a board of vintage Christmas images and Christmas cards.   

In addition to my sweet vintage image, I used the following Cricut cartridges to create the elements used on this card:

Close To My Heart Art Philosophy for the ornament card shape
Anna's Elegant Embellishments for the pink doily mat
Anna's Holiday Home Decor for the poinsettia (currently favorite poinsettia)
Wrap it up for the red paper ribbon

I used a light gray ink on the edges of the card, flowers, and ribbon.  I used White Opal Liquid Pearls on the doily.  I finished the card with pink seam binding ribbon.

If you have not already done so, you should definitely drop by The Merry Christmas Challenge Blog and check out the Christmas cards created by the rest of the design team.  And please feel free to link your Christmas card creation to the blog!
