Hello Kitty Reindeer Christmas Card

This last card swap group, I was having a creative block! I think it is because I am swamped with so many orders right now, I am fast approaching "Brain Fry"! After a few minutes of racking my brain, I remembered that the Hello Kitty Cartridge, for my Cricut, cut cards for all the images! Yes! Once again, my Cricut to the rescue! It doesn't get easier than having your Cricut cut all your images for your kits for you.

I wanted a Christmas card and found this adorable HK reindeer. I cut her 7 inches tall, so she fits perfectly in a 5x7 envelope. I mounted her on red cardstock, cut into the card shape for the same image. It is hard to see, but I used gems for her buttons and her bow is raised with 3D pop dots. I love Hello Kitty! There is just something about her that is so endearing!

Holiday Cards

I recently taught a card making class to a group of woman who wanted to get started with card making or learn the basics of creating card kits, so they could join a swap group. I designed 5 cards, all holiday themed. It was such a fun class and there were lots of us there! I love those kinds of classes- good crafts and even better conversation! Hope to do it again soon.

Here are the 5 cards:

5.5x5" Halloween

5x7 Thanksgiving

4.5x5.5 Gift Holder

This one is holding an Applebee's gift card

5.5x5.5 Christmas

4.5x5.5 Valentine

I have always been a scrapper at heart, but have truly come to love card making!
{All of my cards look like they are leaning to the right on the photos. Hmmm. Must be putting them in the scanner crooked! Sorry about that. °Ü°}
