The 12 Days of Christmas Cards-Day Twelve

Woohoo!! It's finally over! I finished it with a card that just replaced the reindeer cards as my favorite for this year. I'll have to cram them in on the mantel now. This little cottage scene was made again with the Cricut Noel cartridge. I have had so much fun with this cart, it's totally renewed my respect for this machine. In fact, I think I'm running out in a few to buy another cartridge I've had my eye on!

The background is the SU! Top Note die using some BG Figgy Pudding(also used behind the scene with some SU! dsp) and I stamped the Santa postage with SU! Winter Post stamp set in versamark and then rubbed some Pearl ex over top. It worked FABULOUS! I'm so slow, I never thought of doing that before for a subtle image. Then I embossed a PTI sentiment in gold and added MS coarse glitter and some light accenting with Prismacolors on the cottage and trees. A little bit of SU! Alpine Originals ribbon finishes it off.

Hope you enjoyed the cards this year. It's been a challenge for sure. I'll be checking in soon with some birthday cards to share!
