Simple Card using Winter Woodland

Hey guys this is it! This is my week to be one of the guest designers for Christmas With The Cricut. I am so excited to be a guest designer. I can't tell you how thrilled I was to be invited by Tammy, Joy and Melanie. Joining me this week is Barb aka Snowmanlover. Be sure to check out her project at Snowmanlover's Paperie.

For today the assignment was a simple card with a video tutorial. This was my first try at making a video so ya'll don't laugh to hard at me *okie swears she will smack anyone who does*. I was assigned to use Winter Woodland and Mini Monograms on my projects. I know the Seasons Greetings card may look complicated but it really isn't. And the good thing is if you want to make it and have Design Studio and Winter Woodland and Mini Monograms you can make the card. The cut file is set to cut 4. I did use the 12x12 mat feature but if you have a baby bug you should be able to just move the elements around to fit the 6x12 mat for the baby bug.

I used Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses for the patterned paper and Stardream Mica cardstock for the bird and sentiment.


And here is my video debut!!

  1. You're great Hour voice is fine. No one likes their own voice. I think you are funny. I would love to see more videos from you. The cut files are amazing. I really appreciate the time it takes you to make all those cut files. Keep up the good work!

  38. Love your card. I was wondering if there was something else I could use for the MM cart? I do not have that one but really like your card. Also, is there a way to use your cut file but delete the MM elements? Sorry, I have never used a cut file before but wanted to give it a try. Thanks. Bobbi M. csmbsm@msn.com

  75. Fantastic video. You did a remarkable job...true pro. Love your card and no, your voice is not horrible. You sound great. You are very entertaining. Thanx for the tip for 4 instead of 2 from a sheet of paper. Gotta love savin money. Neesey rolls eyes up after buying an outfit when she didn't need it this weekend. Can you relate!

  82. Wow look at you ! from card maker to movie star!!! I love it ! you did a wonderful job for your first! The card (as always) is just Beautiful - I don't have that cart but will cheat with the birds from 50 states and follow your video to make some ! Can't wait til the sequel comes out !

  83. Love the video, and there is nothing wrong with your voice. Beautiful card :) Love all the details. I love that glue, it is one my favorite adhesives. When I want to make sure my die cuts are together good, I use a wallpaper seam roller and roll over them once they are all together. It gets all the air bubbles out and makes them lay down flat.
    Hugs, Can't wait for the next video.

  84. Love the video Okie!!! Great job on your first one!!!! I think you know how to edit videos better than I do! :) and I think we all hate the way we sound on video!! :) I hope there are many more to come!!! I enjoy looking at your latest creations!!!
