Thanks for stopping by for this fun Blog Hop and a special thank you to Jamie over at Glitter, Stamps, and Paper OH MY  for hosting this hop.  I am so glad you asked me to participate as I love to make Christmas cards.  Christmas is my favorite time of year. :)
PhotobucketIf you are here from Kristin's at Lil Sweetpea's Place http://lilsweetpeasplace.blogspot.com/ , then you are in the right spot.  If not then you need to start at the beginning over at Jamie's at Glitter, Stamps, and Paper, Oh My   http://www.glitterstampsandpaperohmy.com .


For this hop I chose to make a Christmas/Winter card using the  new Cricut Cartridge that I just got called HOLIDAY CAKES.  
Here is a list of other things you will need :
- winter paper   - card base ( A-2 size)   - Holiday cakes cartridge   - Tags Bags Boxes and More  Cartridge
- ATG Gun   - Quick Dry Adhesive (glue)   - Glitter   - Bling  - Cuttle bug with Swirl folder  
-different colors of paper for your trees and the layers   -white paper to cut out your snow   - scissors
-  white gel pen   - twine   - corner rounder punch   - pop dots

This picture shows you the full detail on the card.   I hand cut the snow to the length of  4x5 1/4, and added glitter for the extra sparkle.

 Here you can see how I used the cuttle bug folder, and the bling on the 2 trees.  These trees were cut at 3 and 3 1/2 inches (pg 77 Holiday Cakes).

The tag  (pg 111 Tags, Bags, Boxes and more) is cut at 3 inches and the white gel pen was used to give it that stitched look.

A piece of twine was tied into a bow and put onto the tag.


On the left you can see how pop dots were used on the hand cut snow.



 I hope you all have had a fun time hopping through and have found some fabulous inspiration for this Christmas/ Winter season.



Here blow is the same card with a few differences , but without rounded corners.
