Exploring Cricut Challenge

Hi Everyone!

TodayI have my project for the challenge over at Exploring Cricut . This weeks challenge is to use a pine, fir, evergreen, or christmas tree in any way (does not have to be Christmas related).

As soon as I read this I had the perfect idea! I have been missing going christmas tree hunting (my husband and I use a fake tree:( ), I haven't been able to go with my family for a couple of years now. The last time we went early when I was home for Thanksgiving (still in school)...well the tree ended up dying before Christmas, so we ended up using my 4' hot pink tree as our family Christmas tree!!

Anyway, back to the project. I used Paper Doll Dress Up for the tree and Just Because Cards for the truck. To make them look "snowy" I dabbed a Qtip in white ink and randomly inked the tree and truck.

Truck is cut at 5" and the tree at 2.5", card is a standard A2 size. The stamp is from My Pink Stampers Happiest Moments stamp set.

Hope you enjoyed this project!

Friday post for Exploring Cricut

Hi Everyone!

Life has been busy! But today I have a project for Exploring Cricut. I intended for this to be a card, but the size came out kind of small, I still might use it for a card, or I might use it for a tag/card for someone.

I used the stocking off of Doodlecharms and flood filled it on my Imagine with 2 patterns from the Mr. Frosty cartridge. Love how it turned out!  It was all cut at 4", then I just used a brad to form the card base!

Have a wonderful day!!
