Cricut/PTI Christmas Card

Hello everyone and I hope you had a creative day on World Cardmaking Day yesterday. I couldn't get inky because I was having a great time at the singing workshop in Cumbria, but I had felt I was missing out so I got my supplies out first thing this morning and came up with this card. As it has squares on it (do rounded squares count?), I thought I might have it as a second entry into the Passion for Papertrey 'hip to be square' challenge. I am also going to enter it for the Sweet Stampin Challenge to use die cuts.

I used PTI kraft card as a base then I used my Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge to cut out the letters for JOY in PTI sweet blush, berry sorbet and ripe avocado card. I discarded the letters for use in another project and used the negative space to cut 3, 6.5 cm squares. I backed the squares with PTI text-style polka dot parade paper, stamped and embossed a little snowflake on the centre of the O, and then rounded the edges. I punched 3 little tags in the same colours, stamped the sentiment from PTI Snowfall, and attached them to each square. I stuck the squares onto the kraft card, raising the centre square for some dimension, and finished it off by inking the edge in fresh snow ink and adding some knotted ripe avocado ribbon.

That was fun!

Thanks so much for your lovely comments, I really do appreciate them.

Have a great day,
