Two More Christmas Cricut Cards

Hi everyone and Happy Monday! :) I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend. We had a wonderful Christmas here. My husband's mom and step dad came here along with a family friend and we served dinner, did presents, and just had a wonderful time together. I also took this week off of work so I get to spend some time at home with hubby (he's off work as well since the kids are out of school) and of course, some time in the craft room. I have a couple more Christmas cards to share with you today. I decided to use my Cricut on these, I hope you like them.

For my first card, I decided to use this adorable chimney and this too cute Santa from the Simply Charmed cartridge. I cut the chimney out at 4 inches and I cut Santa out at 3 inches. After I put everything together, I used my white and black gel pens to do some doodling. Next I added glue all over the snow covering the chimney and then sprinkled on lots of Martha Stewart fine glitter (it's really shiny in person). Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from DCWV. For a finishing touch, I added a Prima, pearl, and little branches made from my Martha Stewart branch punch. The sentiment is from an old Studio G set. What do you think?

For my second card today, I decided to cut out this adorable Santa from the Winter Frolic cricut cartridge. I cut him out at 4.25". I did some doodling with my gel pens and then put everything together. I popped his mustache with some pop dots. For some extra touches, I added ribbon, a bow (tied with my Bow Easy), rose from Wild Orchid Crafts, and pearls. The sentiment is from Studio G. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you enjoyed my Cricut Christmas cards. Have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here soon.
