FCCB #315 - Winter!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge! To all my US friends, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving last week!! It wasn't a holiday here in Canada, as we had our Thanksgiving last month, but I did take advantage of some online shopping and got some great deals - getting most of my Christmas shopping done! 

Challenge #315-Winter
Make a project about the winter (sports, snow, etc)!

This Weeks Sponsor

Dreaming Tree SVG's

The winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

For my project today I've made this sweet little gift card holder using the Dreaming Tree Christmas Gift Tags, which is a free download and includes 2 tags. I've used the Snowflake tag, which I just love! I also used the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 Cricut cartridge for the treat favor box, adjusted to hold a gift card, and the Merry & Bright cartridge to cut the Merry Christmas label, shown on the opposite side, below.

The Tim Holtz plaid Christmas paper was just what I was looking for to cut this little bag! I paired it with some Kaisercraft beachy paper for the tag and a Lawn Fawn plaid paper for the snowflake, and I stamped on the to: and from: sentiments from a Lawn Fawn tag stamp set. These beautiful SpiegelMom Scraps Shabby Chic Christmas sequins were just perfect to scatter around the tag and coordinated wonderfully with the gems on the snowflake. I used some black burlap string to tie my tag to the top of the bag.

On the other side of the bag I used foam dots to pop up the Merry Christmas label after covering the sentiment with Glossy Accents for shine. 

A few more sequins finish off the back side!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to see what all the other designers have come up with, and enter your own Winter project (with a Cricut cut) for a chance to win a prize from our amazing sponsor, Dreaming Tree SVG.  I hope you get some great Cyber Monday deals today if you're doing a little early Christmas shopping 😉 and have an awesome week!
