One More Christmas Card! Featuring Joys Of The Season

Hello Crafty Friends! Welcome to She's A Sassy Lady! 

I am Donna Lee from Stampin N Scrapin With Donna Lee. Thank you Sheila for inviting me to share here today!

Today I want to share just one more Christmas card that is easy to make using the Joys Of The Season Cricut cartridge.  I've cut the Rocking Horse card on the page below at 5.37 inches using my Gypsy.

 I set the width of my card to 8.5 inches and the Gypsy set the height for me. Cricut Craft Room will do the same.


Using my Gypsy, I was able to size my rocking horse to fit perfectly over the cut out on the front on my card. My rocking horse and it's layers are all cut at 1.75 inches. I cut the blackout, shadow, and the layers.  On the layers I used the hide contour feature to hide different pieces so that I could cut the tail and mane in a different color. Below is a picture of all my layers.


I use a Scor Pal to score my card base.


I used a piece of DCWV glitter card stock behind the window. This gets covered up on the inside of the card.


Now it's time to adhere the layers of the rocking horse. For these small pieces I prefer to use my glue pen or Tombow Liquid Mono Adhesive.


The brown shadow has dimensional adhesive on it to pop it up just a little bit. I used Stampin Dimensionsals from Stampin Up as it's the perfect height.


His saddle, bridle, mane,tail and the accent piece are next. They are cut from DCWV card stock. I was able to use my scraps for all of this card, except for the card base. 


For my sentiment I went to Close To My Heart Artbooking Cricut Collection. It's cut at 4.25 inches. I did not use real dial size. It's cut using scraps of Recollections Foil paper from Michaels.


A good glue pen is best way to adhere this.


Thank you for stopping by She's A Sassy Lady today! I wish you all a very blessed and Merry Christmas and a safe, healthy, and prosperous New Year.




 
Blessings and Peace,
Donna Lee
