With each of these I did a little touch-up to make it more 'mine'. On the reindeer I added diamond stickles to the design on the banner; It changed the color of the underlayer and added some contrast. I also added a stick-on star, also coated with diamond stickles.
The little shepherd is also pictured below. I added a touch of stickles to the rim of his hat and added the computer printed sentiment.
The star looked really plain to me until I outlined each triangle with stickles. It's not really visible in the photo but in person it is quite majestic looking.
The 'merry Chrismas' card beow is made with the poinsetta edge from 'A Quilted Christmas'. The sentiment was cut from the Phrases cartridge.
After all the cut-out cards I wanted to do a 'real' Santa; he's from the same cartridge. The letters are from Suburbia (I love that font!)
Each card has a computer printed sentiment inside. I found a book online, "Say It With Style 2" edited by Tnaya Fox. It is FILLED with sentiments for using in cards, all occasions, and I found some lovely ones to use for Christmas.
I hope this inspires you to get a head start for the season. I hope to sell some at an upcoming sale in our apartment complex. Have fun. Keep creating. And, keep looking in at Exploring Cricut.
Have a great week.
