Joyful Stars Blog Hop - Merry and Bright Card!

Welcome to our monthly

Joyful Stars December Blog Hop!

Merry & Bright Card

Today I'd like to share with you a quick card, inspired by a fellow consultant I saw on YouTube.  I used the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge to make my card.  The card measures 5x7 when completed.  

I first set the Cricut to cut at 5 1/2 inches.  I cut my card base out of Colonial White, and then selected the 'Sentiment' setting and cut the 'Merry&Bright' selection twice (one out of Cranberry, and one out of Whisper card stock).   

Using a bone folder, I creased my card base (Colonial White) and then did the same for the Merry & Bright cut (Whisper).  I  inserted the card base into the Whisper cut and used the Bonding Memories glue to hold in place together.

I then used my paper trimmer and trimmed off the excess, leaving a 1/4 border around the Merry & Bright Cranberry card stock cut.  I then attached it to the top of the Whisper cut out (layered).

As a finishing touch, I embellished the ornaments with Bitty Sparkles.

This card was super easy and I hope you like it. Please remember to leave a comment.
