O Holy Night

 Are you still working on your Christmas cards?  I admit, I still have a few to go!  I was able to create this gorgeous layered card with the help of the Cricut Complete Creativity Collection.  The Close To My Heart Cricut Collections have many layered options as well as complete scrapbook layouts.  You only need to select your cardstock colors and cut!  The images are super easy to assemble.  Here is just a sampling of the projects included in the Cricut Complete Creativity Collection.

After cutting out my images, I wanted to add a little more pop.  I applied a Shimmer Mist to my Sapphire background prior to assembling my layers.  The star was cut with gold glitter paper.  The Close To My Heart glitter papers cut super smooth in the Cricut. The completed project is 5" x 7" in size.

All supplies by Close To My, except where noted:

  • Cricut Complete Creativity Collection
  • 1385 White Daisy Cardstock
  • X6047 Black Cardstock
  • X5954 Pewter Cardstock
  • X5957 Sapphire Cardstock
  • Z3238 Gold Glitter Paper
  • Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist-Tattered Angels
