Welcome everyone! You should have made your way here after visiting Nina's blog, if not please go back to Erica's page at http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com and get back on track. I guarantee you do NOT want to miss anything these ladies have put together for you! We have all learned so much from each other over the last couple months, I am so grateful to have found Erica's page and met such wonderful ladies.
Cricut Cartridges: Winter Woodland & Storybook
Silver base and snowflakes: DCWV Stack
Frame: American Crafts Paper A LA Carte in Pumpernickel
Borders: Bo Bunny glittery paper I had in my stash (not sure of the name, sorry)
Ribbon: Offray Metallic Silver
Bling: Swarovski Crystals
I cut a 5x7 card using my paper trimmer. I then used my Gypsy to cut the frame from the Storybook cartridge on page 68 using the frame feature and cutting at 4.35. I simply turned the center of the frame over to show the blue side when gluing to the card. The snowflakes were cut from page 32 and 35 on the Winter Woodland cartridge using the main keys and shift and layer functions. I cut them using my Gypsy also at 1.80, 1.56, and 1.33 respectively. I used pop dots to give dimension between each layer and when adding them on the card as well. I ran my ribbon through the Xyron Create a Sticker http://www.xyron.com (which is an AWESOME tool by the way!) If you do not have one, then I suggest you run...(don't walk) to get one now! I also added some Swarovski crystals to the snowflakes using mini glue dots to add a bit more "ice" to the look. I chose to leave this particular card blank and will add a sentiment when I decide exactly what occasion I will be giving it away for. I hope you like my creation, please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know if you have any other questions.
