Christmas Cards 8/8/2015 Crop- Works in Progress

These cards are works in progress.   Went to a local crop yesterday. 

The first card is a small card, perfect for last minute gifts or use as a tag.

The image is from the Cricut A Quilted Christmas cartridge.   The name of the image is Wise Man Card.  The image is also part of the Cricut Design Space subscription.

I cut the outer images at 5.5 inches by 4.25 inches out of very lightweight glitter paper from the dollar spot at Target.  The inner card is navy and burgundy heavy card stock cut 1/8 of an inch smaller.

I'm still thinking about how to embellish the front.  Maybe something simple like "Peace."

The second card was super easy.  I used green card stock from Michaels (Recollections brand).  It cuts like butter with the Cricut Explore.

The image is from the Cricut Design space subscription Holiday Cards 9, Christmas Card.  The card is cut at 5.5 inches by 8 inches.  The insert is red glitter paper (also from the Target dollar spot).  I cut the insert a little bigger so that I could adhere it to the card and then cut off any excess.

Still not sure if the card needs anything else.  Will have to put on my thinking cap.

Have a great day.  Make it a crafty one.
