Cricut: The Official Blog
Sunday, November 22, 2009
Happy Monday! What an exciting week this will be for me and my devoted Pink Expression. I have the honor of being a Guest Designer this week for the Christmas with the Cricut blog, which you can check out HERE for a wealth of creative Christmas ideas and some incredible giveaways this week! A huge thank you to Tammy, Melanie and Joy for selecting me, and for everything these talented ladies do!! Also, the other Guest Designer for the week is the insanely talented Mandy Ferg, so be sure to stop by her BLOG as well.

Welcome to Simple Card Monday! And there's even a video below!


If you know me very well, you just might know that I have a tough time keeping things "simple". So this card is about as simple as I could get.

I used the Winter Woodland and Everyday Paper Dolls cartridges, and that's what I'll be using throughout the week. Wow - talk about 2 amazing cartridges! I'm trying not to drool on my keyboard here!

To make this card, start with a horizontal red 5x7 card. You'll also need a 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 java (dark brown) mat, and a 4 1/4 x 6 1/4 pink snowflake mat. This pink snowflake paper is from the JoAnn's Peppermint Forest stack - yum! Ink the pink mat and glue to the java mat. Wrap your ribbon around this pink/java combo, and then glue this to the red card. I also inked the red scalloped circle, pink letters of title, white snowflakes, dog, hat and scarf. Careful - inking is addictive!

I cut the scalloped circles from the Winter Woodland cart at 3 3/4" (pg 32 in booklet). The lighter scalloped circle is Core'dinations cardstock, so I embossed it in my Cuttlebug with the snowflakes embossing folder and then lightly sanded it til the pink core popped through - how cool is that? Attach the layered scalloped circles to the card. Also using the WW cart, I cut my snowflakes at 1 1/2" (pg 33-35), and the "Let it Snow" title at 1 3/4" (pg 62). This title is layered with java as the shadow and pink snowflakes for the top.

Now for the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. I cut the doggie out at 2 1/4" (pg 74). I cut a java base using the Shadow/Blackout feature, and then a lighter brown doggie to layer on top of that, off-setting it just a bit. The scarf is also cut at 2 1/4", and then the hat is cut at 3" (both on pg 36). Ink these and glue to the doggie, and then use pop dots to attach him to the card. Finally, use a Signo Uniball white gel pen to go over the accent lines on the doggie and add some white dots to the corners of the red card. Oh, and don't forget your pink rhinestones on the snowflakes. Ta-da! All finished!

Are you ready for my first video??? Ok, be warned - it's a little rusty. At one point you can hear my dog drinking water in the background, and later I refer to rhinestones as "brads". (I swear I know the difference.) Oh, the pressure. Hope you like it anyway!!!



Thanks for stopping by my blog. Be sure to check back tomorrow for a Home Decor project!!

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
