And Christmas Continues

We are very busy in the scrapcave making our cards, lol!  I take NO credit for this card. Kel found the template on Pintrest and showed it to me, I fell in love and had to make some.  I am sure Kel will show hers off as well. It amazing how different the card can look with just changing up the papers.  I love the elegant feel.

The recipe:
Christmas Cheer Cartridge- page 91 for the Christmas Tree, cut at 4".
Recollection Glitzy Glitter for the patterned paper
Recollections Joyful Christmas paper pack for the paper on the tree
Ribbons and Rosettes Cartridge page 56 - cute at 1"x11" (this cartridge is awesome), for the tree layers.
Ribbon on the top from my stash (thanks Noni)

Black cardstock for the base of the card, white for the first layer and green for the second layer.

Kel came up with an easy idea, instead of using a punch for the layers on the tree, let the Cricut do the work for us. The Ribbons and Rosettes Cart cuts out a strip of 1x11 so we just lined it up on the tree and cut it to fit.  It took about 3 strips, not too bad.

Thanks for stopping by. If you need more detailed directions feel free to ask, we are happy to email them to you.
