A lady came in Thursday, asking for a class for 10 people who have never did any cards, crafts, etc......then she told us she needed the class Tuesday at 9 am. I told the boss, I thought I could do it. This nice lady new she wanted two Christmas cards, one birthday and one birthday with a recipe. I needed something pretty simple, so this is what I ended up with. Everything is precut except for the little cupcake. I even added liquid applique to give the frosting more dimension. Would have loved to use my Copics, but not for beginners. The Happy Birthday letters are felt with tiny candles, the baloons are a punch, inked slightly to give depth and the Ultimate white gel pen to add highlights. Inside is the word "Celebrate" in large letters from the same name cartridge.

For quick and easy Christmas cards the Cricut is just the best. I tend to ink instead of adding a second layer for making the sleigh pop. Inside is a Cricut gift in the blue, with ribbons of red. Simple Christmas ornaments backed in silver paper, and a snowman attatched to the front of the card. The negative of the snowflake is added inside with a white snowflake brad attatched to its middle. So many of our customers are working on their Christmas cards already...God bless them.
