Christmas Card- Exploring Cricut
Welcome everyone!  Glad you could join me today for the this weeks Design Team daily project at Exploring Cricut.
I used Cricut Cartridges Creative Memories - Tis the Season and CTMH - Art Philosophy. I made a Christmas Card.
 . My card is 5" x 7". I cut the base at 10" x 7" using blue polka dotted card stock. I cut out the following layer at 4.75" x 6.75". I rounded all of the edges and cut out the center layer with my Cricut using CTMH - Art Philosophy cartridge at 5" and put thru my Cuttlebug and used the Darice Snow Flake Embossing folder.
 I cut the banners at 4.5" on the blue polka dotted paper and the white at 4.25". I added two sparkly blue brads from my stash. I used foam tape to add dimension to the banner.
 . I added ribbon to the center striped layer and then attached it to my card layer. I added the top layer with a few pop dots and then added the banner.
 . I used my white gel pen to add snow to the trees and then used my Memento markers to make the highlighting. I then pop them up with pop dots and added a bow.

Inside I stamped my sentiment in Memento Teal Zeal ink. I added a bow and finished up the card. I hope you have enjoyed my Christmas card.

What I used:
My Cricut Craft Room
Cricut Cartridges - Creative Memories - Tis the Season and CTMH- Art Philosophy
Zip Dry Adhesive

Stamp Set - Close to My Heart stamp set
Card Stock - Core Impressions Textured Paper (Card base), Recollections 12x12 and Cricut Textured White
