Christmas Cheer, CCC Challenge #55

Well it's almost Christmas so why not join us for a Cricut Cardz Challenge. The challenge for this week, starting on Wednesday, December 15th, is to make a Christmas card with a mini banner on the front using any cartridge or colour.

I started with plain white A2 card and mounting a backdrop of cranberry cardstock. I found a scrap of paper from last year's Christmas collection that is green, pink and red plaid. I placed it at the bottom of the card and took some co-ordinating plain green cardstock and passing it through my Cuttlebug to add the Swiss dot embossed pattern. I cut the "JOY" mini banner from the Christmas Cheer Cricut cartridge. I had some green satin ribbon with white polka dots and Merry Christmas printed on it so I added it to cover the seam between the two papers. The final touch was to add a white snowflake that I punched out using my Martha Stewart snowflake punch.

Let's see what you can come up with given the requirements above and post it for all to see at Cricut Cardz Challenge. Bye for now.
