I love this card, I think that it is my favorite so far for Christmas! I used the Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge and cut the dog at 3 1/2". I cut the Santa hat from Winter Woodland at 2 3/4". I used the Jolee's By You "Christmas Lights". I used my computer to make the sentiment "I'm on the Naughtly List" at 14 pts Kristen ITC font.

I used the Mr Frosty Cricut Imagine Cartridge for the patterened paper and the pink. I used the Wild Card Cricut cartridge for my image and cut it at 6". If you would like to cut an envelope to go with this you will need to make your card smaller. It is a very simple, but elegant Christmas card.

For this Christmas card I used my Gypsy to create it. Using your Gypsy saves a lot of time trying to figure out what sizes you will need to make all of your cuts.
I made this a 5 1/2" by 5 1/2" sized card. I cut my snow globe from Doodlecharms at 5". The santa sleigh is cut at 3.91 width and 1.71 height. The house is cut at 2.63 width and 2.18 height, and the tree is cut at 1" width and 1.35 height. I used the stamp set Christmas Wishes from My Pink Stamper. I would have to say that this is my favorite Christmas card so far. Although, I did get the original idea from Sara at liveloveandScrap. Thanks Sara !!
This Christmas card was made a little differently than your standard kind of card. I used the "Double Pocket Fold" to make this card. I embellished it with a Christmas stamp set from Michaels that has 30 little images. For my first tag I used my 1" punch to punch them out once I had them colored in with my Copic markers. Then I used my 1 1/2" scallop punch for the Santa. I used some Jolee's boutique dimensional stickers for the second tag.

I was inspired by the previous Cricut Cardz Challenge that I decided to make another circle card using the Winter Frolic cartridge with the colors red and green! I cut the circle card from Wild Card Cartridge at 5". I cut the snowman out at 3 3/4" from Winter Frolic and I used My Pink Stamper Christmas Wishes stamp set for the Ho Ho Ho!

For this challenge, we were to make a circle card for Christmas using any cartridge we would like with NO red or green. I used the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge to weld two circles together on my Gypsy to make my card base which is cut at 5 1/2". I cut a scalloped circle for my layer at 5". I cut my snowman at 4 1/4" from Winter Frolic. I used stickles for his nose and 2 buttons.

For this card I used several different Cricut cartridges and I used my Gypsy to get me started. I love to use my Gypsy when designing cards. It is so much easier to use it as a template for creating my cards!
I used Winter Woodlands, Winter Frolic, Joys of the Season, and My Community to create this card. Winter Woodlands I used for the apartment building and cut it at 4 1/4" from page 44. Winter Frolic cuts are for the Snowman on page 30 cut at 3", the ice skating girl from page 40 cut at 2 3/4", and the Winter Wonderland phrase cut from page 40 at 1 1/4", and I cut the tree out at 3" from page 48. I used Joys of the Season to cut the snowflake and I used Snowflake 3&4 to make one snowflake that I cut at 1 1/2" from page 61. I used My Community to cut my fences at 1 3/4" on page 37.
I had a super fun time making this card :)
