Merry Christmas and a GIVEAWAY!!!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!

Hi Everyone! I hope you all are having a great week so far. So, are you all getting your Christmas cards done? Yikes, I  have a lot to do yet but hopefully I can keep making a little progress each day and have them done on time.

Here is a Christmas card that I made today to share with you using the Jolly Holiday's cartridge which is one of my favorite cartridges this time of year.


This is a center step card and the papers are all from the Recollections Jolly and Bright collection. I cut this adorable little skater girl at 3 3/4 plus all the layers. I embossed some of the pieces with the polka dots folder and added some fun angel dust to add lots of sparkle! I also used my gypsy to hide the face features so I could use the PK Cherub faces stamp set. I added some rosy cheeks to her and glossy accents to the eyes. Isn't she just a dolly?


I pop dotted and layered her on a Spellbinders Label Nine frame. I inked around the edges with Tim Holtz~Victorian Velvet. The snowflake is from the Spellbinders Create a Flake three dies which I glittered up with angel dust and added a sparkly gem to the center. The snowflake border along the bottom is a punch from MS and the cranberry crinkle ribbon for the double bow is from My Craft Spot along with the fun twine that I used for her hair ponies. Cute, ha?

I am entering this in the following awesome challenges:

1.) My Craft Spot ~Challenge #78-Merry Christmas-get going on Christmas cards

  65. Yikes, Sherrie!

    That's a hard one! ;) So many of the regular cartridges have great holiday cuts on them (love the reindeer on Create a Critter, the gingerbread on Create a Critter 2, so many on even the older ones like Doodlecharms and Everyday Paper Dolls, ...), but I think my favorite (& newest cartridge) would have to be the Cricut Lite Jolly Holidays!!! :)

    Thank you so much for the chance to win,
