CPS #145 and Color Throwdown #71 - Christmas Star




Ever since I bought my Cricut Expression last February, I have been wanting to buy a Christmas cart so I can make Christmas cards. But since I ended up buying a whole whack of Christmas cards at amazing prices in January, I told myself I would use those up first. When a co-worker asked me to make a card for her son for Christmas, I couldn't resist. I turned to CPS this week for the sketch and used colours from Color Throwdown to come up with this card. I used a 4" holly border from the Cricut Stretch Your Imagination cart, Swiss Dots embossing folder and a star I designed in Microsoft Word. I can't say I'm overly thrilled with the result but I can always change it, I suppose.
