Cricut Cardz Challenge #4, There She Goes 31-Color Challenge, Lexi's Creations Challenge #2, Cupcake Craft Challenges #68

Thursday, December 3, 2009
So this card qualifies for quite a few challenges this week (I wish it also qualified for Pile it On, but oh well).  I worked all day on it so I want to get as much mileage out of it as possible.  Here is my step card.  Cricut Cardz wanted a step card, There She Goes wanted red, green, blue and neutrals, Lexi's Creations wanted a shaped card, and Cupcake Craft wanted red and green.

I wanted to go for a depth perception type card where Santa is right next to you, Mrs. Claus is looking on from the distance, and Santa's cottage is way in the background.  I think it work out pretty well.

Santa, Mrs. Clause, trees, and the Santa sack were cut using the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge, the saying "The magic of Winter" and the cottage were cut from Winter Woodland.  The cottage actually has a second story so I layer the house all together and then cut off the second story.

It's a little hard to see, but Santa's gloves, belt, and boots were covered with crystal accents to make them look like patten leather.  The dark green trees are outlined with Diamond Stickles.

Mrs. Claus (sorry for the focus issue) has faux stitching on her apron and crystal accents on the dot on her dress to give her a little shine.

Like I mentioned before, this house is actually two stories when cut out with the cricut, but I cut off the second story.  The snow on the roof was covered with crystal accents to give it some shine.  The striped trees I cut out at 1 3/4" and did an autofill.  I wanted the look of a forest.

Finally the greeting has faux stitching and diamond stickles on the snowflakes.
