Christmas in July

I made my first Christmas card of the year.  It was made following a sketch on the Cricut message board, as are the majority of my cards are.  I hauled out my Christmas paper stacks and found these two papers in my My Minds Eye paper pack from last year and created this card.
The plaid paper in the background I cut using the MS Seasonal Cake Art cartridge with a file that I set up in the Cricut Craft Room.  They are improving the Cricut Craft Room all the time and it cuts like a breeze.  Soon I hope they will have most of the kinks worked out.
Other than that cut the rest in stickers so I feel like I cheated a bit but I do like how it turned out.  The stickers are some glittery ones I got from WalMart last year.
A close up of the tree, they are clear and just about disappear when you put them on paper.  I stuck this one on white pearl linen paper.
The "Joy" i stuck directly on the plaid paper that has some glitter in it.  The candy canes are also small stickers.
I am so glad you stopped by and I would love it if liked what you seen enough that you would become a follower.  I am coming up on my 1 year blog anniversary and would love to have 200 followers by then. Thanks

Donna, such a pretty card. I love the glittery stickers. I'm anxious for them to get the bugs worked out of CCR. Still can't get my Imagine to cut with it. It prints beautifully but will not cut.
