I am so proud of myself right now! This morning I read about the Cards for Heroes Challenge and this afternoon I had an hour and a half while the kids were napping. In that time I made 20 cards and packaged them up just in time for the mailman to arrive. I was worried if I didn’t send them right off they would just sit here forever and I’d end up missing the deadline. I was in such a rush I didn’t even get a change to take a picture for the blog!! No way could I have finished them all so quickly without my beloved Cricut Expression!
I will describe them for you though. I used the Cricut Christmas Cheer Cartridge to make 3 fancy little trees in across the front of the card. Supplies I used:
They were super simple and totally adorable. I hope some hardworking military guy or gal enjoys sending them to their rellies for Christmas!
My inspiration was this cute little card posted at twopeas. The creator of that card, GIPFunny, used a Sizzlet die and then brads to embellish the tree. It looks absolutely adorable but I don’t have the patience for that (I never would have finished in time!!). Using the Cricut to cut out the trees and the Xyron to adhere them saved me A TON of time.
here is a link to GIPFunny’s card:
I haven’t figured out yet what to use as a Christmas card for our family cards this year.. maybe I’ll just do more of these.
