Chrsitmas Cards

I have been lax in posting on my blog recently. However, I have been quite busy. I've been driving for about a week, with a four day break in Washington for a wedding and visiting friends and family. I have been back in Minnesota, staying with my in-laws, for about three days now. My husband and I will be looking for a place to live next week. The rest of our household goods should also be coming in next week. I can't wait to get my Cricut unpacked and to start creating again. In the meantime, here are some more Christmas cards of mine.
These two cards are using the two cartridges that come with the Cricut Expresssion. The first one is using Plantin Schoolbook. I made it a long card and cut the forest to fit the length. The reed and white stripe at the top was cut using my straight paper cutter. The stars and sentiment are stickers and I added some Stickles to one of the trees.
This card is from Accent Essentials. The card is 6"x6" square. I used some snowy looking paper for the background. I found some soild paper in my stash that were the perfect colors to add as an accent and some ribbon in my stash that mimicked the falling snow look. The snowflake was cut from Accent Essentials. I used a stamp from my stash to finish it off. I like how this one doesn't use any traditional colors, but just really feels like winter.
