OWH VCMP - Christmas Card

Today starts the Operation Write Home (OWH) Labor Day Virtual Card Making Party (VCMP).  First challenge is from Nancy who wants us to make a winter or Christmas themed card for OWH following  a sketch.

Cricut cartridge:  Mini Monograms
Designer Paper:  My Mind's Eye "Signature Christmas" 12"x12" pack.
Sentiment:  CardzTV "Classic Christmas" stamp set.
Ribbon:  from Michaels

A2 Sized Card = 5.5" x 4.25"
Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge
Card Recipe:
  • Mat 1 (turquoise) = 5 3/8" x 4 1/8".
  • Mat 2 (snowflake pattern) = 5 1/4" x 4".
  • Inchies = cut image and shadow at 1" from Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge; [sqresclp-s] found on page 128 of the folder.  I used three different designer papers all from the same pack.  A good tip from Nancy when attaching to your card is to start with the center inchie first.  After attaching all the inchies, I trimmed off the inchies that extended off the edge.

  • Mat 3 (slider under sentiment) = cut image and shadow at 1 1/4" from Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge; [sqreslot-s] found on page 131 of the folder.  Mat is mounted with foam tape.
  • Sentiment "Noel" = from CardzTV "Classic Christmas" stamp set.
  • Ribbon = from Michaels.

Inside of Card
Inside of Card:
  • Mat 1 (turquoise) = 5 1/8" x 3 7/8".

  • Mat 3 (beige) = 4 3/4" x 3 1/2".
  • Corner Mats = these are the two trimmed off pieces from the front of the card.
