Be Merry

I love my Cricut machine and I am so excited to really be using it again!

Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper
snowflake buttons from stash bought at Michael's last Christmas
Bazzill cardstock
Basic Grey chipboard bird
Martha Stewart glitter
ribbon from stash

For this card, I used my lovely Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper again. I just love it and it looks so nice. I started with a chocolate brown Bazzill base and layered that with a sheet of green Bazzill. I cut a strip of the Figgy Pudding and put the ribbon along the bottom of the paper. The bird is glittered and I Modge Podged it so that it would be a bit shiny and also covered it with red Figgy Pudding paper. I cut out "be merry" with my Alphalicious Cricut cartridge and shadowed it with Figgy Pudding. I had some cute snowflake buttons that I put along the top and by the bird. I forgot how much I love to just sit down and craft for hours. I guess sometime soon I need to do other things but they aren't as fun!
