This week over at BBTB2 Karen asked us to use the candle cut from Wrap It Up Cricut cartridge. I have this cart but have not used it and there are so many great cuts on it!
This was a quick card as my back is still playing me up hence the lack of blog activity and getting round to comment on everyones lovely creations so please accept my apologies.
I made this quick Christmas card using Tim Holtz Christmas embossing folder on white card matted on to gold self embossed foil card then on to a white card base approx 5x7"(all pop dotted). The candle is cut at 5 1/2" base white, layers gold, accents white. (pop dotted) To finish off I added some red gems, a litle red bow to the candle and found some red Christmas ribbon in my stash which I added to my card before adding the candle.
We hope you'll join in our challenge over at BBTB2 this week and if you don't have Wrap it Up cartridge you can use any candle from any cartridge!
Thanks so much for visiting and I would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas!

Today the lovely Lori chose the cut for this week's challenge over at BBTB2 which is any tag from Winter Frolic cricut cartridge. This cartridge has so many gorgeous tags it was hard to choose!
I decided to go with an oval tag which had a holly cut out in the base cut.
I cut the shadow at 5 1/2" in white and the base is cut using kraft cardstock. I doodled around the holly leaf cut out with a white gel pen then embossed with The snowman Christmas Sentiments embossing folder, I love all the Christmas greetings in different fonts on this folder and it's a great size folder at 5x7". I added little red buttons threaded with red thread for the holly berries and backed the holly leaves with green felt. The base is then pop dotted for a little dimension. To finish off I added some red gingham ribbon and a gold jingle bell.
These tags come together so quickly and easily and would look lovely on presents wrapped with brown craft paper.
So let's see your tags! Don't forget if you don't have Winter Frolic you can use any tag from any cart!
Pop over to BBTB2 and take a look at the gorgeous tags the rest of the DT have created this week.
Thanks so much for popping by!
