A Sweet Christmas in Candyland

We just had one class this month, it's just too busy with the holidays.  I'm so glad so many of my friends and customers could come and make cards with us!

I'm totally copying a card I saw on a blog...but I can't read the watermark on the picture.  So sorry, I would love to give you credit, whomever you are!

Supplies Used:
Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge (Z1686, $99) for the tags
Candyland (D1557, $17.95) (gingerbread man)
Fabulous You (C1533, $13.95) (diamonds and birds under the tag)
Holiday Tags (D1560, $17.95) (sentiment)
Card Stock:  Cranberry, Colonial White, Champagne
Inks:  Sweet Leaf, Saddle
Liquid Applique (retiring on 1/31/14 - get yours while you can!)
Red Glitz Glitter Gel (retiring 1/31/14 - get yours while you can!)
Colonial White Grosgrain Ribbon (retired)
Cranberry Waxy Flax (retired)

The Fabulous You stamp set has a bird, some flowers and grass.  I just used that as a background stamp under my gingerbread man.  It also has the diamonds I used on the tag.  There are two rows of 6 diamonds on the stamp set, I only wanted 4 of them on my tag, so I made a mask for the bottom of the tag (with a Post-It Note) so I would only get the 4.  

This is my new favorite Christmas card.  WELL, this is a problem - I have all these penguin cards I made to send to friends, and I'm tired of them and don't want to use them.  This is what happens when you start making Christmas cards in September...  :(

Have fun playing with paper this week!
