Christmas Cards for Local Craft Fair using Artfully Sent

I was busy preparing cards for a craft fair that was held today at the local high school.  My Cricut machine got a workout with the CTMH Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge.  I was able to make up a bunch of cards without aggravating my tendinitis very much, which is good, as I am now getting the early symptoms in the other hand and have had to leave my day job so I can let it settle a bit before my specialist appointment in January.


I turned the HO HO HO card from the Artfully Sent cartridge into a Santa by adding a 1/2 scallop circle and a mustache from Artiste along with a strip of black cardstock and some gold glitter paper for the belt buckle.  Very easy and a lot of fun.  


The Holly Jolly card was nice and quick - just added some glitter paper behind the bells and finished it off with some Ruby cardstock to fill in the rest of the letters. 


I added glitter paper and a holly image to dress up this Merry Christmas card and used the Christmas Tree pop up card inside it.  The Holly was cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge.



Here's another Holly Jolly - this time I used Lagoon cardstock and pink glitter paper.  And I used my score board to emboss a quick border around the outer edges.


I used the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the banners out for this card and the poinsetta is from the Artiste cartridge.  The layout is from Make It From The Heart Volume 1 - Pattern 22.  And the paper is from the Yuletide Carol paper pack.
