Happy Hollyday Card using Cricut Gingerbread Seasonal Cartridge

It's Friday!  OMG did any of you watch the Sing Off--if not it is must see family TV--these folks can SING!!
Enough of my side tracking mind--and back to the topic at hand--PAPER CRAFTING
I love today's card--it is simple yet one of my most favs I have done.

My printed kraft paper I got at Archivers--they had a whole assortment when I was there last.  This one happens to have Holly on it--I used solid red cardstock for the over all base and sent it through my trust cuttlebug with a sizzix holiday folder.  I layered the holly strip and added some sticky red ribbon I have had for ummmmmm years!
I cut the holly at 3 1/4 inches, using green for the base and the same red as the ground for the layer.  I found these great buttons in an assortment from paper trey ink and added a bit of twine.  Poof--now you have holly berries!

You know I did the inside!  Using the same red as the front and some colonial white CTMH cardstock I matted the inside.  In the corner I stamped in green a stamp that goes perfect with this card.  A few red pearls and you have a super quick and very finished card!  Oh wait what about the envelope.  Since i did a lot to this card--the envelope needed to be simple--so I used the same stamp and centered it on the back of the flap--
This one is ready to mail!  I do hope you have a great weekend!  I will have a few projects for next week so make sure to check in--they are not done--well even started so I can't give a preview--I am going to just pull some paper and make it work (why do I hear Tim Gunn in the back ground).  Have a great weekend--I must get to crafting
Make it a great one-

PS--there is an amazing January set from CTMH that you will all want--a must have--Getting my product this weekend so right after Christmas hold on cause these new items are AWESOME!!!!

  2. Very nice card,simple but eye catching.

  3. How beautiful!!! I love what you've done! TFS! :)

  4. Sweet and simple but just the thing as it is getting a little late for cards. I love the inside of the card and the envelope. You have made me realize that no card is complete without the inside and the envelope done to match.

  5. Great card. I have this cartridge so must make a few cards. You are so right about The Sing Off. Beautiful voices.--Ryansmaama

  6. This is a creat card! The simple step of stamping the envelope really ties the set together! Nice work!

  7. Bryan,
