Hola friends! This week's Challenge Me Monday at Fantabulous Cricut is Christmas In July. This is officially the earliest I've ever made a Christmas card! I decided to combine two different fancy folds, the folded paper frame and easel card. I really love how it turned out! Lookie:
Beautiful is it not? ;-) This card was easy and time consuming at the same time. The easy part was cutting all of the pieces. The hard part was inking everything and waiting for the stickles and pearl pen to dry. Yes, I'm crazy and apply my pearl pen directly to my projects! It's not hard to do and I really don't like doing them ahead of time and trying to put them on later. They are just too small to mess with. You can remove them before they are completely dry if you change your mind. The little scoop tool that comes in the cricut tool kit works wonderfully for this.
