Finally....A Christmas Card!

Whew, I finally got most of my cards made and in the mail!!! These are a simple design but they took awhile to make since I cut out the ornaments on my Cricut and had to assemble them. There were some issues (there's always something). Mostly some glitter paper that was giving me heck trying to cut it.

Top Tip Tuesday: One thing I did that you might want to try at home, make your own pop dots. You can't tell in the picture but I made pop dots to raise the ornament off the card. I used craft foam that I had gathering dust (I almost threw it away!). I cut it into one inch wide strips and ran it through the Xyron twice (once for each side). Then I cut it the size I wanted for each ornament. Since these were going in the mail, the home made pop dots were the right thickness for mailing.

Supplies used: card stock from my stash, BasicGrey, DCWV, Wausau, EK Successs, Cricut - Joys of the Season
