When the Multi-Square die arrived at my house, my husband told me it looked like I had ordered a little “window” cut-out.  That really made my creative brain start cranking. 🤯 I started out by designing a window card featuring a Fall Tree, then decided to move onto Christmas by creating a simple card that appears to be looking out the window onto a delightful Winter Wonderland. misscarriescreations-winterwonderlandcard.jpg

It was difficult to even consider creating for Christmas when we are still experiencing 90º weather, but I just couldn’t pass up using this Share the Seasons die to create a beautiful scene.  I started with background that I cut from Watercolor paper using an image from our new Complete Creativity collection.

After the background had dried, I added some Trees that I cut from White Daisy cardstock & White Glitter paper using the same Cricut™ image. I used some Foam Tape to add the “Window” and created a multi-layer Poinsettia cut from another image in the Complete Creativity collection.

It is hard to see, but I couldn’t resist adding some Red & Julip shimmer to the Poinsettia. The sentiment was stamped onto Vellum with Evergreen Ink, heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder, and added it to the front of the card.

Now ‘Hop” on over to Becca Whitham’s blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting tips and other fun ideas. This Share the Seasons Bundle is only available through September 30th, so be sure to contact your CTMH Consultant, or visit the Promotions tab of my website to see how you can save 30% on this bundle.

I can’t wait to see what you create!
