Merry Christmas


I thought I'd try some non-traditional colors for the Christmas card I made today.


This card was fun to make because it's unlike anything I am used to making!  I ran white daisy cardstock through my Cuttlebug using a snowflake folder.  I sponged it thoroughly with sweet leaf and then went over that with crystal blue.  I like that technique - what do you think?  The snowflake is one of the free cuts in the Cricut Craft Room this week, and I covered that with stardust glitter gel.  The addition of the silver ribbon tape and sparkles on the snowflakes makes this a pretty sparkly card!

I am going to enter this into the following challenges:

I love the colors and how the sponging brings out the texture. Thanks for the tutorial. A Cuddlebug is on my Christmas wish list, so I hope to give it a try.
