I haven't posted for two weeks thanks to internet and health issues. I think we finally resolved the first. It's hard to have internet when you live in the country too far from any town. As for the health issues, this aging body seems to have its own agenda that is sometimes relieved or distracted by creating and sometimes not. During that time I decided I wouldn't be able to continue being on the creative team for Doodle Pantry, although I dearly love Laurie, her art, and the team members. (I know they'll benefit with someone more reliable.) I will still highlight projects made with the fun images from Doodle Pantry!
I was also afraid I wouldn't be able to use my Cricut Create either, since it uses internet to operate. I was so relieved to get internet issues resolved, so I've started making cards with the new Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge. This is one of the swing cards. Each page in the cartridge book has a pop-up card and a swing card. This one is on page 34 (shift<V>) and includes the wreath shape. I cut the card at 5.5" using the CTMH Yuletide Carol paper. I used Cricut Artiste to cut the title shape for the stamp, "Holiday Tags." Dots of Bronze Glitter Gel are on the berry shapes of the wreath. The bottom strip of paper is a zip strip from the Yuletide Carol paper pack. This Christmas card is flat enough to send by mail!
I also added a red 2.5" inch circle under the wreath. I cut a set of 3" and 2.75" circles for the sentiment inside. I stamped that sentiment using a CTMH "Be Jolly" stamp set, only available to hostesses.
Thank you for visiting! May God bless you as you create and share your love with others!
