Cooking With Cricut Design Team Day - Last Minute Cards & Tags Challenge!

Hi Everybody!
It's time for another Cooking With Cricut Challenge!  With Christmas only 12 days away (that's scary!!), CWC is here to help you with some last minute cards and tags ideas!  This is the perfect challenge for all you procrastintors out there (including me!!).  Here is my project:

*Christmas Cricut cartridge
*Pink by Design = Old Time Christmas set
*tulle from my stash
*MAMBI = patterned paper
*green card base from my stash

*Just cut a regular A2 size card (4 1/14" x 5 1/2"), and a mat cut @ 4" x 5 1/4".

*Wrap a piece of tulle around the mat.  THEN adhere mat to the card base.

*Cut this simple 4 layer santa (flesh layer, red layer, white layer, and glasses).

*Put pop dots behind Santa.

*Tracing his beard in Stickles adds the perfect sparkle and texture, and is quick to do!  Make sure not to do this step until the card is fully assembled so that you can give the Stickles enough time to dry!!

*Stamp a sentiment on the front.

That's it!  It takes about 30 minutes from start to finish (including design and cutting time).   I hope you enjoyed my card. Now it’s your turn!!! Head on over to Cooking With Cricut to enter your project. TFL, and hope everyone has a chance to craft today :OD
