Christmas In July Blog Hop
Welcome to the Christmas in July Blog Hop! The theme for this week is Cricut Christmas - Anything Goes. If you arrived here from Laura's Blog, then you're in the right spot. If not, you'll want to start at the beginning at Paulette's Blog. We've got some talented Cricut crafters lined up and they can't wait to show you the Christmas project they created! So make sure you visit each blog in the hop and leave a comment. Not only because we all love comments, but because each blog you comment on will give you an entry in the prize drawings! Our wonderful blog hostess,Paulette is giving away a prize! This week's prize is a Christmas Village cartridge. After the drawing for this week's cartridge, all the entries will be added to the entries from the first 3 weeks and a winner will be drawn for a Christmas (Noel) Solutions cartridge! So be sure to follow, comment and hop!
My project for this week is a Christmas card that is really out of the box for me. I have a hard time combining patterned papers, but I did it on this card.
This is an A2 size card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). The base is ivory cardstock. The red layer (on the front and inside) is 4" x 5 1/4", the green snowflake cardstock (front and inside) is 3 3/4" x 5". The ivory layer on the inside of the card is 3 1/2" x 4 3/4". All solid cardstock is Recollections and the patterned cardstock is The Paper Studio from the Ornamental Christmas paper pack.
I used the Close To My Heart Art Philosopy cartridge to cut the tag an stocking. The tag was cut at 4" and I used the hide/contour feature on my Gypsy to hide the stocking cutout. The stocking was cut at 3". Both the tag and stocking can be found on page 67 of the handbook. I then added a button to the tag.
Here is a picture of my Gypsy screen, as well as a picture of my mat with the paper on it.
Thank you for stopping by my blog to see my project. Your next stop in the hop is Lisa.
