This card was inspired by Pinterest, but I thought it was a very simple card to try.  It's been a while since I blogged, so I wanted to do something simple to get back into the sing of things.  I used scraps from a 6 x 6 paper pack from Pebbles Inc., called Welcome Christmas.  I also used an embossing folder from Stampin' Up, called Softly Falling and plain white card stock.

This is another version of the same card.  It's a little rustic, however, it is still Christmas paper.  The paper is Timbergrove, by Fancy Pants Designs. There is a YouTube video from MayMay Made it, with complete instructions, however, she too states that she found it from someone on Pinterest.

I made this card using my Cricut Explore 
from Anna Griffin Cards and Embellishments 2
 Cartridge.  The card base is 10 x 7, scored in
 half at 5" to create a 5 x 7 card.  The white
layer is cut at 6 3/4 x 4 3/4.  I added an 
accent of silver sequins for a little sparkle.

I created this card using the Cricut Explore.
I used the Anna Griffin Flourish Cards
and Embellishments cartridge.   I used 
an Embellishment (#M1BD487) from the
 cartridge and sliced it into a basic shapes
square (#M369896).  Be sure to resize
your basic square to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2

The smaller panels were cut at 2 x 3 and
1 3/4 x 2 3/4.  They were layered together
and a piece of ribbon was tied around it
to form a bow.  The sentiments are from
Close To My Heart and the name of the
set is called Sincere Expressions

I created this carousel mini album completely
from paper.  The paper is so detailed that you
really didn't need embellishments.  That,
alone, made it quick and simple.  The only
thing used, other than paper, is one small 
piece of ribbon.  I really like how it turned out.

The tutorial can be found here:
