My Christmas card is a 5.5" square card that was made with three basics I consider essential in my paper crafting tools.
1. My Merry Christmas stamp is from CardzTV Stamps "Classic Christmas". Not only are these stamps beautiful and easy to use, the sentiments in this collection are a perfect for any variety of Christmas projects. Both traditional and secular sentiments are included in this versatile set. The deep etching of the clear stamps make stamping effortless.
2. My elegant layered mats are cut using Cricut Elegant Edges. I don't have tons of cartridges and I only have the original Cricut that cuts on a 6 by 12 mat, but I would say Elegant Edges should be one of the basic cartridges for your collection. The combinations of designs and the formats of cuts (including borders, ovals, pages, and shapes) make designing projects very easy and there is an endless amount of combinations.
3. I ran the doily cuts through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. This folder is another essential in my collection. Dotted Swiss fabric has always been a classic for me. I like it in my wardrobe, my home decorating and definitely in my paper crafting. It brings a touch of elegance to any paper.
The supplies and measurements for my card are at the bottom of this post.
