Exploring Cricut ~ A Christmas Notecard ~

Happy Friday and welcome to another fun project for Exploring Cricut!

I realize that Thanksgiving is still a few weeks away, but in order to get an adequate number of Christmas cards done...  I have to start EARLY!  Today's project is a simple note card using one of my new favorite cartridges, A Quilted Christmas.

 
This cart has a TON of card base ideas! I opted to used the card base shown on page 74 cut at 5 inches (red CS). I then cut the shadow in white. The reindeer may be found on page 64. There is another standing fellow but I kinda like this leaping guy... He is cut at 4.5 inches using the Deer2, Layer 3 and assorted accessory cuts. I added a bit of dimensional foam to make him pop off the page and a rhinestone flourish bit leftover from another project. Super easy!

Thanks as always for stopping by and until next time... blessings...
