Festive Friday Blog Hop

Welcome back for another installment of our Festive Friday blog Hop. I can't believe that this is the 7th week of hopping. Time is going by so fast. Christmas will be here before you know it. I hope you will consider joining us in our quest to acquire a stash of Christmas cards and avoid the rush of trying to make them later on.

I made 2 shaped cards for my project today. I decided to use the Hello Kitty Greetings Cricut cartridge. If you have this cartridge, they are super easy and quick to make. I used the card feature to cut the shape of the card. Next, I used the base and layers feature to create the front of the card. Easy Peasy!!!

The first card I created is Hello Kitty Santa. She is super cute dressed in her red and green. I added Diamond Stickles to her ball and brim of her hat and also to the small balls on her shoes. I added Patina Stickles to her top.

The second card I designed is a cute little Christmas Tree with sparkly presents (love those Stickles in Yellow & Patina). I decorated the tree with Liquid Pearls in Gold, Emerald Green, & Ruby Red.
