Cricut Make It Now Project: Christmas Pen Art

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking through my links. 

I use my Cricut Explore mainly for scrapbooking but have been trying some new things with it for the Holidays.

I love the Make It Now projects in Cricut Design Space and decided to make the Christmas Pen Art Project.


I love the writing feature in Design Space.  I use it to add journaling to my scrapbook pages.  This project uses pens for Christmas Subway Art.  

I used Pilot Precise V5 Pens in my pen holder and love the very fine line that they draw. 

This project was very quick to do - the longest part was gluing the 5 layers of letters together.  
And that didn't even take that long.  I added some glitter that I had in my stash to the word "Joy",  then I glued the letters on top of the written words on my background sheet.  

I've had this frame sitting in a closet for a while now. 
I took out the glass and the mat so my popped-up project would fit inside it. 

After gluing together the pieces of the Poinsettia, I added a piece of CTMH Foam Tape to the back so it would pop up from my page. 

I added a CTMH Gold Bling Gem to the centre of the Poinsettia.

Here is my finished project - I cut a piece of Recollections Holiday Cardstock down to 8x10 to fit my frame and the  Recollections Red & Green cardstock used in this project came in a coordinating pack.
