Merriest Wishes Workshops Your Way!

Good evening! It’s a chilly rainy day here in Utah, so I thought I’d start this month’s blog posts off with some cheery Christmas cards. These cards feature the Beary Christmas papers found in the Merriest Wishes Cardmaking Workshops Your Way. This kit comes with everything shown below including an exclusive B-sized stamp set!

The first option uses the provided cutting guide and you can create 6 each of 2 designs like these:

For these cards, we use Sweetleaf, Fern and New England Ivy to stamp the trees on the first card. The stars are stamped in Cranberry. The second card uses Fern along with the black Merriest Wishes sentiment.  These cards also use the Thin Cuts – Basic Circles.

I decided to play with this a bit to see if I could get some designs that created more cards. I came up with these 2 designs which I can get 12 of each card. I have to add 1 sheet of Cranberry cardstock for cutting the poinsettias and 2 sheets of Fern cardstock for the bakcground on the 2nd card.

The first card use Sweetleaf and Fern to stamp the tree, Cranberry for Merriest Wishes, and Glacier for the stars. The Happiest Holidays is stamped in New England Ivy with Cranberry stars. Both are embellished with Bitty Sparkles. I cut the poinsettia using the 3D poinsettia #MFAE0B7 from the Flower Market Cricut cartridge – I simply un-grouped the images, and deleted all but the green leaves and the 5 petaled flower – I cut one using the regular Cranberry and the second using the lighter side of Cranberry. Looking at it, you could probably just cut them all from the same side because there isn’t really a big difference.

Enjoy & Happy Christmas Crafting!!
