Create a project inspired by Christmas

And we are giving away a $25 Amazon gift certificate, courtesy of FCCB Design Team! This prize will be given if there are 10 entries or more. 

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

I love getting together with friends to make Christmas cards, and a week ago I had two lovely ladies over to make some cards using a One Sheet Wonder pattern from My Chic'n Scratch. She provides details on how to cut your papers to make all these cards and a cute folded box! By using circle and scalloped circle diecuts from Cricut Craft Room Basic Shapes I created a focal cut to stamp my greetings on from the Nativity 1 and Nativity 2 stamp sets by Pretty Cute Stamps and used a Season's Greetings stamp my friend had from a set she got at Hobby Lobby.


I added some Distress Ink shading around the edges of my circle cuts before layering them on the scalloped circles. Then I popped up the stamped circle with foam dots. Some pretty sequins from the SpiegelMom Scraps store decorate the front of my card - adding a bit of Christmas bling!

I am trying to use up the Christmas papers I have on hand this year, and this was the perfect project for this! I was able to use some papers from an older CTMH collection as well as some from my favourite Heidi Swapp Believe paper pack.  This was such a nice project to work on together. I was easily able to cut the pieces for myself and my friends and we all had a wonderful, crafty day!

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you're enjoying these weeks leading up to Christmas and not stressing too much. When I start feeling overwhelmed I just remember the real reason for the season, and suddenly it doesn't seem as important to fit everything in, buy that extra present or spend more than I should on holiday shopping. ❤️️ Be sure to head over to the Fantabulous Cricut Blog to see all the other lovely projects our Design Team has come up with - and enter your own for a chance to win an awesome prize!
