A Fantabulous Christmas


It's Christmas in July week here at Fantabulous Cricut. It's really hot here in Texas right about now so this challenge is just what I need! 


For Challenge #19 you are to create a Christmas themed project to get ready for the upcoming holiday. As always there is a Fantabulous Cricut Cartridge prize. Be sure to hop on over and upload your project today.


For this challenge I created a Christmas card by cutting the beautiful oval shape on the Home Decor Cricut cartridge. You can find this cut on the far right side of your key pad next to the' "space key. Press the "shift" key first. I used the inside oval and saved the outer one for another project.


I actually cut out the reindeer from patterned paper from my stash. I wish I knew who made it. It's so pretty. Then I used the rest of that same paper on top of the white cardstock. I added a sheer black ribbon bow to the side to dress it up a bit. The stamp I used is from the "Happy Everything" set from Stampin Up! 



Have a Fantabulous Week!
