Glitter Ornament for Merry Monday

Time to play along with Merry Monday again!

This year my goal is to use my Cricut more often, and to use up some of the papers and supplies that I've gotten from companies other than SU, and also to get some of my retired SU papers out and used!

When I got my Cricut last summer I went crazy buying Christmas cartridges but I've hardly touched them! For today's card I decided to use an ornament from the "Joys of the Season" cartridge. To go along with the paper I was using I thought the red glimmer paper would be perfect.

I tried a couple of different sentiments and I finally went with this one because I didn't want anything too overpowering, since the ornament is so bold that's what I want to be the main focus.

 Head over to Lesley's blog to play along with Merry Monday. One can never have enough Christmas cards :)

I added Dazzling Details to the inside of the snowflake, to give the cutout portion more of a kick.
Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: sentiment from Bright Hopes
Paper: Soft Sky, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, WinterSong/Flurry Kisses PP by S.E.I.
Ink: Soft Sky, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Cricut "Joys of the Season" cartridge, Snow Burst embossing folder, Big Shot, Dazzling Details, Dimensionals, sponge


  1. Gasp! This blows my socks off Lisa! Love that you used the cricut (I need to use mine more) and the colours are really pretty together! Awesome card!

  2. Love it! I am sure my Cricut is under about 3 inches of dust at this point. :/


Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, its always appreciated!
