Christmas Globe Card

I created this card for Emma's Throwback Thursday's Challenge - if you haven't ran across her yet OR want to get involved with her fun challenges, check her out HERE!!

This week we were to create a card using WILD CARD that is inspired by our favorite holiday.

For me this was a toss up: Christmas or Halloween - both are SUPER fun to decorate for, but Christmas won out because of it's meaning:)


This card measures 4 x 3 1/2.

Yep, you're right this image is NOT on the Wild Card cart!! The option for the Christmas card was the envelope I used, but the card was an ornament....boo! So why not make what I want, right?? I found a square, added a snow globe and used cuts from PPDU to place inside:) I wanted the card and envelope to match so I used a Christmas tree to tie them together.





Recipe:
Gypsy and Cricut Expressions
Card stock:
golden yellow, black, white, brown
Paper:

Square...don't remember which cart I used
