Shaped Present Card


 I created this card for a challenge over at Cricut Cardz Challenge.  The challenge is to make a card for Christmas using the card feature on any cartridge.  It's running until November 16th if you wanna join the fun :)

This shaped card is from the Sweet Treats Cartridge, cut at 5 and 1/4 inches.  I used 2 papers from the Peppermint Forest stack from Joanns.  Then I added 2 colors of Stickles, Xmas Red, and a real favorite of mine called Holly.  It's a really special color mix - mainly green, with flecks of gold and red, just perfect for holiday projects!

This was a really fast and easy card.  That's one thing I love - having the option to throw together something quick if I don't feel like spending a lot of time.  Now I have one more cute and fun holiday card ready to go :)

This is absolutely my favorite cut from the Sweet Treats cartridge and I use it a lot. It's so cute done up in Christmas papers. Love the Stickles you added. Really makes it sparkle. Thanks for playing at CCC.
