Dove of Peace

I love the way this card turned out.  I think it's my favorite Christmas card for this year.  The card embroidery pattern is from Stitching Cards.  This dove of peace is just beautiful.  The pattern suggested using metallic thread but I chose to use regular white and green embroidery floss.  Long before I ever started making cards, I did counted cross stitch and embroidery.  It's so fun to combine some of my favorite crafting mediums.

From Our House To Yours

I love the simplicity of this card.  I decided to make the card so we were peeking in the window from the outside.  Since my house is yellow, I decided to make my card to match.  I used an embossing folder from The Paper Studio for the outside of the house. 

Card Details:
Window: Christmas Noel Cricut cartridge cut at 3.75 inches
Base for the wreath: Silhouette circle from George Cricut cartridge cut at 1.25 inches
Christmas Tree: Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut cartridge cut at 3.25 inches
Martha Stewart branch punch
Brick embossing folder from the Paper Studio

Ugly Christmas Sweater

The current challenge at ScrapbookerPhd is to created a shaped or folded card.
I have had this paper in my stash for a couple of years and it has always reminded me of a Christmas sweater.  I used Cricut Craft room to create the card.  I found a shirt in the Everday Paper Doll cartridge and then stretched and welded two together to created the card.
I had fun adding lots of embellishments to make it look "tacky"  The star is a charm and I stitched it to the card so that it won't fall off.  I found a pom pom the perfect size to give Rudolph his red nose and the ribbon is from the dollar spot at Michaels.  I purposely left the ends frayed to give it that well worn look.

Here's the inside:

This card is for a certain someone we constantly tease about wearing ugly sweaters.  However, I think it would also make a great invitation for an Ugly Sweater Party.  I have already received an inviation to attend one Ugly Sweater party this year.

Card Details:
Card shape: Created in Cricut Craft Room
Christmas Tree: Magnolia Doo Hickey die
Reindeer: Cottage Cutz Die
Inside Sentiment: Computer generated by me
