Fireplace Xmas Card


INSIDE: (I used the reverse cut of the Xmas tree instead of throwing it out. I think this works well for the insides of cards, as long as the shape is big enough to write your message inside the card). The stamp is by Studio G and it says "Warm Winter Wishes." I thought it was so appropriate for this card.

I am very happy with how this card turned out. I have been wanting to make the fireplace from my new Cricut Joys of the Season cartridge. I also used the cart to make the tree and candle. I used stickles to create the garland across the fireplace. The paper is by Me & My Big Ideas. I love how the striped paper looks like wallpaper. The ribbon is American Crafts.

Here are the challenges:
1. Winter Wonderland - Home for the Holidays
2. Simon Says Stamp - Xmas in August
3. Tuesday Morning Sketches - sketch
4. 365 Cards - Triangle, buttons, sticker (I used Jolees poinsettia dimensional stickers)
