CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • White Cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Copic Markers in flesh greens a and red
  • Pop Dots
  • Create a Critter 2
  • Corner Punch
  • Black Ink
  • Black Cardstock
  • Stamp with Christmas Greeting

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Make base of an Easel Card. Print and cut a square out of the red polka dot pattern on Santa's Village Cartridge at 6". Ink Edges. Cut another square out of black cardstock at 5.5_ and then make a decorative corner using a corner punch. Cut the bird and it's parts at 1.25", then the branch at 1.5". Cut another branch from Art Philosophy at 1.5". I colored over the leaves and berries in these with copic markers. I also colored the bird as well to give it more rounded look. Cut the wreath parts at 4.5" and the word Joy at it's wreath to fit the larger wreath. I had issues with the offset so I colored in the wreath in green and actually liked the two tone effect it gave. I cut off the white that was on the innder and outer ring. I left the red inner ring intact and just colored it in. I cut the label on the card base from Art Philosophy and popped it up over a green strip using pop dots. I stamped the sentiment with a Close to My Heart Christmas stamp set.
