This card was made using plain card stock and
scraps from my stash.  The card is 5 x7 and 
the pieces were cut as follows:

 10 x 7 inches scored at 5 inches
the navy layer is 4 3/4 x 6 3/4
the light blue layer is 4 1/2 x 6 1/2
1 piece of grey ribbon 5 inches

Card Panels (pp = patterned paper)
(grey) 2 1/4 x 4 3/4  (pp) 2 x 4 1/2
(grey) 2 x 3 1/2 (pp) 1 3/4 x 3 1/4

Inside Layers
(navy) 4 3/4 x 6 3/4

Instead of ribbon on the inside, I used a
piece of the card stock that was layered 
on the front.  The piece was cut at
1/2 inch x 4 1/2
Inside sentiment by Verve Stamps

I found this card floating around YouTube.
I am not sure of the original creator, however, I will link
to the tutorial that I used to create it.  It looks very involved,
but it is quite simple to make.

Give this card a try.  It's so much fun!

This card was made using the Cricut Explore.  The wine bottle
 and glasses, and the corner embellishments.  The sentiment
was written by the Cricut as well.  It was simple and quick!

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
